Last night was huge for college football fans as the LSU Tigers took on the Clemson Tigers in the National Championship game. The plane was traveling from LaFayette to Atlanta to watch LSU play in the Peach Bowl.
Joe Burrow #9 of the LSU Tigers reacts to a touchdown against Clemson Tigers during the third quarter in the College Football Playoff National Championship game at Mercedes Benz Superdome on January 13, 2020 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Chase had 221 yards and two touchdowns on his nine receptions, while Jefferson finished with 106 yards. This Spring, Burrow will be drafted into the National Football League and many people think he will go to the Cincinnati Bengals with the first overall pick. On Tuesday, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron sang his squad's praises.
According to state law, the smoking age in Louisiana is 18.
Joe Burrow did it again.
Orgeron was named head coach in 2017 after spending part of the 2016 as the interim coach, replacing Les Miles The 2017 season started out rough for Orgeron, especially after losing to Troy. Oklahoma's got the second-most with four, with Ohio State trailing them with three appearances. It was a move that both benefited Burrow, an OH native, and Orgeron, who grew up mere miles from LSU's campus. "I'm so proud of the state of Louisiana".
"I mean, we feel like we have the best receiver corps in the nation", Jefferson said. "They deserve this day". Chase set his own individual record in the national championship game with 216 receiving yards.
Burrow ended his career with an NCAA single season-record 60 touchdown passes. LSU never relinquished the lead.
The addition of Broyles Award victor Joe Brady to the staff from the New Orleans Saints was a game-changer, and a program-changer, for LSU.
Before the end of the period, Burrow completed a six-yard pass to Thaddeus Moss, which put LSU 28-17 up at halftime.
