The day we have all been waiting for has finally arrived. The College Football Playoff National Championship.
Joe Burrow (5,208 Passing YDS, 55 TD) put the country on notice this season in Baton Rouge, leading No. 1 LSU to a storybook 14-0 season as well as taking home the Heisman Trophy.
Burrow decimated No. 4 Oklahoma in the Peach Bowl in late December. The presumed No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft posted 514 all-purpose yards and eight total touchdowns to lead this group to the title game for the first time since the 2011-12 season, when the Tigers were shut out by Alabama, 21-0.

On the opposing sideline is Clemson star Trevor Lawrence (3,431 Passing YDS, 36 TD). The 6-foot-6 sophomore has won 25 straight games going back to last year and faces his toughest test yet.
Lawrence put on a show in the Fiesta Bowl against No. 2 Ohio State, posting 365 all-purpose yards and three total touchdowns to upset Chase Young and the Buckeyes. Lawrence carried the Tigers over Alabama in the title game last season and will look to do the same Monday in New Orleans.
