Gubernatorial swearing-in, BCS Championship highlight busy Monday

John Dupont

It’s a busy Monday in  Louisiana.

The day begins with inaugural festivities at 11 a.m. for Governor Bobby Jindal, who begins his second term in office.

Former Governor Mike Foster will introduce Jindal, who will take the oath of office at noon at the Old State Capitol.

The inaugural festivities will live, beginning at 11 a.m. on Louisiana Public Broadcasting (Ch. 27 in Baton Rouge).

Most state office are closed today in observance of the inauguration.

Another celebration takes place tonight 75 miles south of Baton Rouge, when the LSU Tigers clash with the Alabama Crimson Tide for what’s billed as the “Game of the Century” in the BCS National Championship Game.

Kickoff at the Mercedes Benz Superdome is 7:30 p.m.

The game will air live on ESPN.
