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

Burrow went on to Ohio State University where he sat behind J.T. Barrett for two years before transferring to LSU.

Monday's win comes after LSU (15-0) won both the SEC title and Peach Bowl. Burrow threw for five touchdowns and ran for one as his team hoisted the championship trophy.

The police officer's concerns did not dissuade LSU from posting a video of players smoking celebratory cigars in the locker room following the Tigers' 42-25 victory over Clemson.

Heisman trophy victor and presumed No. 1 pick in the National Football League draft Joe Burrow led the way as the Tigers celebrated their flawless season in the bowels of the Superdome.

But following spring practice in 2018, Burrow made a decision to transfer from Ohio State in order to get playing time. "First of all, I think LSU did a good job". We've had support from the governor, from the President, from everybody that loves LSU. But you've got to give the credit to the football team. They've been working for one year.

The 23-year-old's performance on the night saw him set the FBS single-season record for touchdowns with 65, adding to his first-placed 5,671 passing yards on the year. LSU fell behind 17-7 but rallied to take a 28-17 halftime lead.

Lindsey O. Graham and Tim Scott, the Republican senators from Clemson's SC home state, were among the lawmakers who flew with Trump to New Orleans, The Post's Josh Dawsey reported.

It may sound nearly unorthodox to throw LSU in the conversation for the best team in college football history, but the Tigers certainly left their mark on the college football world during the 2019 season.
