Clemson Trying To Win Back To Back Championships
Heading into this big showdown with the LSU Tigers, Clemson will be looking to extend their winning streak to 30 games. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence will push his streak to 25 straight wins and back to back championships if Clemson gets the win. The Tigers advanced to the title game after they defeated the Ohio State Buckeyes. Lawrence led on a game winning drive in the last minutes of the game to get the win against Ohio State. Through out the season many pundits said Clemson played a soft schedule, but beating Ohio State showed everyone that Clemson is a great team no matter who they are playing. On the season Clemson offense has been stellar. They average 45 points per game and that ranks 4th in the nation. Clemson also have the best defense in the country.

Free NCAA Football Pick
This game will feature the two best teams in college football this season. LSU and Clemson have been dominant all season. LSU’s offense is slightly better than Clemson’s, but Clemson’s defense is way better than LSU’s. Both quarterbacks need to play great for their team to win. I trust Trevor Lawrence more in this type of game because of what I saw him do to Alabama’s defense last season in the national championship game. This game should be high scoring because both offenses are in the top 5 for total points. Also, both teams are in the top 5 for yards per play. Going up tempo on offense will cause problems for both defenses. I will take the OVER for this game. Clemson 38. LSU 35.
