UCF player gives young Tiger fan gloves after Fiesta Bowl
GLENDALE, AZ - A photograph captured a special moment between an LSU fan and a UCF football player after the 2019 Fiesta Bowl.
The picture shared on Twitter says a young Tiger fan walked up to UCF's Brandon Moore, and congratulated him on a great season. In return, the defensive back handed over his gloves as a souvenir.
"I know I'm not your team but I want to give you my gloves," Moore said.
The two apparently shared a hug after the touching moment.
The Tigers took home a 40-32 victory over the Knights in a roller-coaster bowl game.
