It's Gameday between LSU and Clemson. We've got all the information you need to know before watching the National Championship Game tonight!!
Dabo Swinney and the Clemson Tigers are seeking the program's third national championship in four seasons, but the #1 LSU Tigers stand in the way of that.
Behind quarterback Joe Burrow, the Tigers are back to the biggest stage in college football for the first time in 12 years. Burrow enters tonight's game with 5,208 yards and 55 touchdowns. Burrow is just three Touchdowns shy of tying the Football Bowl Subdivision's single-season record.
LSU is trying to hand an elite football program its first loss in a while. Trevor Lawrence is 25-0 as a starter at Clemson. The Tigers are also in the middle of a 29-game win streak.
There are a couple of questions that need to be answered during the game:
- Can LSU complete a dream season?
- The Tigers reaching 15-0 in New Orleans would be a pretty big accomplishment in itself.
- How can Clemson attack LSU's Defense?
- The numbers speak for themselves about Trevor Lawerence... He is 25-0 as a starter. That speaks for itself. He knows how to win, but in order for him to have success versus LSU Lawerence will need to continue to do what he did well against Ohio State and that is run the ball. Throughout the season LSU has struggled with mobile quarterbacks... With that being said in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl versus Oklahoma, LSU held Jalen Hurts to 43 yards on just 14 carries.
