NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana — The Superdome press box remembered sports broadcaster Carley McCord with a reserved spot ahead of LSU's 42-25 win over Clemson in the 2020 College Football National Championship game.

ESPN broadcaster Edward Aschoff was honored as well with a spot of his own. 

McCord, the daughter-in-law of LSU offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger, died in a plane crash on Dec. 28, 2019.

McCord was 30 when she died in the plane crash. She was married to Steve Ensminger Jr., the son of LSU's offensive coordinator.

ESPN aired a tribute to McCord prior to LSU's game against Clemson.

This isn't the first time the Superdome remembered McCord. The press box also reserved a spot for McCord when the Saints faced the Vikings in the opening round of the NFL playoffs.
