Joe Burrow caps historic season with national title win

The Clemson Tigers are the defending champions who have won 14 games this season and 29 straight going back to 2018. Where was LSU, the team that actually rolled to a record-breaking 15-0 season, led by Heisman Trophy victor Joe Burrow?

Burrow, victor of the Heisman Trophy and likely top overall pick in this spring's National Football League draft, is from Athens, Ohio and graduated in three years from Ohio State.

His standout play in the championship game was part of the reason Clemson went 1-for-11 on third down, and he helped prevent opposing quarterback Trevor Lawrence from getting into a groove throughout the contest. He didn't get a lot of playing time when he was with the Buckeyes, so he transferred to LSU in 2018.

Quarterback Burrow finished 31 of 49 for 463 yards and five touchdowns as well as running one in himself to help his side to a 42-25 win over Clemson and, in the process, cap a remarkable individual season.

For Clemson, the 2019 season narrative was that even though the Tigers kept winning, they had a weak schedule and hadn't been challenged.

In the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, Burrow threw for 493 yards and 7 touchdowns; he also added 21 rushing yards and a touchdown on his feet.

There have been six College Football Playoffs.

Rightfully, Clemson and Ohio State are expected right now to make it to next year's national championship game. "But man, we did some really incredible things".
