Who will win the College Football Playoff National Championship: LSU or Clemson?
If you saw LSU's destruction of Oklahoma, there is no way you can say any team can stop them. Heisman-winning quarterback Joe Burrow tossed seven touchdown passes to tie a bowl record...in the first half. THE. FIRST. HALF. He ended up finishing the game with eight total scores after tallying a rushing touchdown, accounting for 48 of LSU's 68 points.
No matter what defense Clemson has in store for the LSU Tigers, they won't be able to stop Burrow and the LSU offensive machine. The Baton Rouge-based school will be crowned the national champion.
Before the first snap in the College Football Playoff, Clemson was derided as one of the weakest teams ever to play in the tournament. How does that assessment look now?
Ohio State was hailed as one of the strongest teams of the season, but the Buckeyes couldn't rattle Trevor Lawrence and Clemson's explosive rushing attack. The composed Lawrence finished the game with 259 passing yards with two touchdowns and led the Tigers with 107 rushing yards and one score. Aside from Lawrence, Clemson's defense proved they were up to the task of playing winning football, intercepting Heisman-finalist Justin Fields twice, sacking him four times and notching five tackles for loss.
LSU may be one of the best teams in the country, but they won't be able to stand the heat of a hot Clemson team with a championship pedigree.
