LSU Trounces Clemson 42-25, Taking Its First National Championship Since 2007

‘Perfect’; Joe Burrow, LSU complete dream season to win the national title

LSU fell behind 17-7 but rallied to take a 28-17 halftime lead.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Superdome in New Orleans honored two sports journalists who recently died with a tribute Monday night in the press box during the College Football Playoff national championship game between Louisiana State and Clemson universities.

Can you imagine going into LSU's locker room after they've just won the national championship - IN NEW ORLEANS - and trying to tell them to stop doing anything?!?!

Burrow won the Heisman Trophy in a landslide this season, and he accounted for a bowl-record eight touchdowns in the semifinal game against Oklahoma. For the night, Burrow completed 31 passes on 49 attempts for 463 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions.

There have been six College Football Playoffs.

The Tigers went 15-0 and became the first No. 1 seed in College Football Playoff history to win the national championship, knocking off Clemson 42-25 in the title game.

It's actually illegal in New Orleans to smoke indoors.

Monday's game also showcased another potential future No 1 pick in Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, with the 20-year-old unable to enter the draft until 2021.

"A moment like this happens and you've got to - man, it sucks, but you've got to look back on what you've done, and we've done some great things, and we've got a lot more in store ahead for sure", Lawrence said. "But man, we did some really incredible things".
