Randy Moss goes full dad mode for Thaddeus Moss at CFP national championship

LSU Tigers

The College Football Playoff National Championship game just got Mossed. Pro football Hall of Famer Randy Moss was spotted at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome decked out in head-to-toe purple and gold -- but not for his old team. Nope, the former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver was repping his son, Thaddeus Moss.

If you're thinking that looks an awful lot like a sweatshirt with Thaddeus' likeness on it, you would be correct. 

Thaddeus, who began his college career at NC State before transferring to LSU, is a junior tight end for the Tigers. He entered the national championship game with 42 catches for 534 yards -- an LSU single-season record for tight ends. On Monday night, Moss scored his second touchdown of the game (tying his previous season total for TDs) with 5:13 left in the third quarter to give LSU a 35-25 lead against Clemson.

Genetics, anyone?
