In front of a purple-and-gold New Orleans crowd, the LSU Tigers wrapped up an undefeated season with a 42-25 victory over the Clemson Tigers in the national championship.

Early on, Ed Orgeron's squad encountered serious resistance from a stout Clemson defense. The ACC powerhouse forced four punts on LSU's first five possessions and built a 17-7 lead in the process.

But thanks to a mismatch that favored receiver Ja'Marr Chase, LSU surged ahead in the second quarter.

Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow put together another huge performance, finishing off a legendary 2019 season.
