After defeating the LSU Tigers, Christian Moore was mic'd up to talk about the team's victory. He was asked what message he'd like to share after winning the title game.

"Obviously, you know it's super fun to be in this position," Moore said (via SEC Sports). "I got a lot more baseball left. So definitely soak this in and enjoy it, but then move on and getting ready for tomorrow."

"It's amazing. I told you, man, it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and just to do it twice now, it's definitely unbelievable."
