Drew Brees sees the Citrus Bowl as a Louisiana family affair. The legendary New Orleans Saints quarterback is serving as an interim assistant coach for Purdue, his alma mater, against LSU in the Citrus Bowl. Spending all those years in Louisiana, Brees came to adopt LSU as “family.”

As a Boilermaker assistant, Brees sees Monday’s game as a backyard football game. LSU is family, but family that Brees wants to beat, he told reporters during a Saturday press conference.

Brees says that the Citrus Bowl is just a one-off for coaching, helping Purdue during a transition.

The Citrus Bowl is set for Monday at 1 p.m. ET, airing on ABC.
