Clemson Football: The difference vs. LSU ultimately came down to one fact

Clemson football fans have pinpointed several issues throughout the entirety of the National Championship loss to LSU Monday night.

As a matter of fact, there’s a whole onslaught of issues that occurred over the course of the night for Clemson football.

  • The Tigers went 1-for-11 on Third Downs
  • The defense tired out and couldn’t get off the field in critical 3rd-and-long situations
  • Clemson’s offensive play-callers abandoned the running game
  • The cornerbacks, in particular AJ Terrell, were beaten soundly
  • Trevor Lawrence played one of the worst games of his career
  • A few missed calls by the officials throughout the night

However, it ultimately came down to this simple fact: LSU made the plays and responded when it needed to, Clemson didn’t.
