Joe Burrow and the LSU Tigers capped their storybook season with a 42-25 victory over the Clemson Tigers in the national championship game.

The 2019 Heisman Trophy winner recovered from a slow start and threw for 463 yards and five touchdowns against an elite Clemson defense. And in the process, he set a Football Bowl Subdivision record. He added 58 yards and a touchdown on the ground, helping LSU amass 628 yards of offense.

LSU also did a tremendous job limiting Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who went 18-of-37 for 234 yards. Clemson also finished a meager 1-of-11 on third down.
