LSU Dominates Their Way to A National Title

The LSU (Louisiana State University) Football team just destroyed the Clemson Tigers on their way to the 2020 National title. The final score: 42 – 25, and it wasn’t that close. Joe Burrow, (remember him?) the runaway Heisman Trophy winner, just reminded the football world why he’s as good as advertised.

This is how Sports Illustrated reported on LSU’s historic win:

“Joe Burrow proved to be that and then some. In the 2019–20 College Football Playoff national championship Monday night, the QB who received nearly 94% of the possible points in his historic Heisman Trophy–winning senior season, capped off No. 1 LSU’s undefeated 15–0 season with a 42-25 win over No. 3 Clemson. You can label its season as magical, a story book, or a fairy tale, but the Tigers’ star QB had said leading up to the Monday’s win that he “expected” to be in the title game. Burrow threw for 463 yards and five touchdowns and ran for another score, as LSU over overcame its first double-digit deficit of the season. In the process, the school claimed its first national title since 2007.

The Bayou Bengals’(I didn’t know they called them that!?) offense got off to a slow start and punted on its first two possessions, a rarity during their dominant regular season. On the game’s fifth possession, Clemson’s offense opened the scoring as its star QB Trevor Lawrence capped off a five-play, 67-yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown run. However, LSU would answer just over four minutes later, when Burrow found the 2019 Biletnikoff Award winner Ja’Marr Chase for a 52-yard TD strike. Chase would finish the victory with a game-high 221 receiving yards on nine catches.”

LSU had an answer for everything Clemson threw at them. And it was a sight to see. So congratulations to Joe Burrow, Coach Ed Orgeron, and the entire LSU football family.

“Joe Burrow and the Tigers’ offense set countless records this season, as their dominance was so truly amazing.

Here’s a sampling of some of the records they set:
