LSU vs. Clemson Championship Game to Be Guarded by Fighter Jets, Marco Rubio Claims

With tensions escalating in the Middle East, there are concerns about Iran targeting the United States with an attack. President Donald Trump will be in attendance for the National Championship game between LSU and Clemson, and the Mercedes-Benz Superdome could be a target. However, Senator Marco Rubio has said that fighter jets will be patrolling the area.


Speaking with TMZ, Rubio said that the Superdome will likely be one of the more secure places in America. Having the jets on hand will provide an extra layer of security, and the awareness will be ramped up due to Trump being in attendance.
