The Ascension Episcopal Blue Gators are headed to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for the first time in program history, and the entire school and fan base was there to send them off.

Before heading to New Orleans, the Blue Gators got to practice for the last time at home. This week marks the last time this group will ever get to play together, and they wanted to soak in every minute. Before they got on the bus for New Orleans, the school held a pep rally and patted them on the back for an incredible regular season.

Hear Head Coach Matt Desormeaux and Quarterback Jake Vascocu's thoughts on a special, historic year, and make sure to listen to the game on ESPN 1420, starting with pregame at 9:45 AM.
