LSU does it in a dominant way

Thirteen days in a new decade, and LSU has reached a place it could not during the previous one: the top of the mountain of university football.

LSU won its fourth national title on Monday over Clemson, 42-25, in front of a local crowd at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Heisman’s winner, Joe Burrow, claimed to be the best college football player in recent times with another legendary performance (31 of 49, 463 aerial yards, 58 yards on the ground and six total touchdowns).

LSU’s defense stepped forward in the second half, and Clemson’s quarterback Trevor Lawrence never found a rhythm when he lost his first game in college, and Clemson fell for the first time in two seasons and saw that his winning streak of 29 games broke. LSU beat Clemson 628-394.

LSU felt that it was the best college football team throughout the season. The committee gave them the number 1 seed when entering the playoffs. They tried it on Monday night.

Coughing any hope

While Trevor Lawrence was trying to lose less than four minutes, any hope of a miraculous return of Clemson disappeared. Combining the play were the deep Grant Delpit, who forced the ball loose, and the first-year phenomenon Derek Stingley Jr., who recovered the ball. Lawrence and Clemson will lose for the first time in 29 games, and the party starts at the Big Easy.


That was an offensive pass interference call about Clemson, a huge decision that eliminated a long touchdown from Trevor Lawrence to Tee Higgins off the board. The play would at least have brought Clemson back in 10 and there is a lot of time left. Instead, Clemson received a 15-yard penalty and was forced to clear.
