Tigers/Tigers–LSU (Tigers) Rout Oklahoma, Clemson (Tigers) Rally Past Ohio State

December 29, 2019

It will be the defending champion Clemson Tigers (they have won 29 straight tilts after a (29-23) win vs Ohio State) vs the top seed and opening 5 point favorite, LSU Tigers in a battle between two (14-0) teams, in the national title game in New Orleans on January 13th.

In yesterday’s opening game devastating (63-28) rout of Oklahoma (0-3) in “semis” games), Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow accounted for 8 touchdowns (7 on first half passes, four of which went to Justin Jefferson–to my knowledge not related to Roy, a great receiving Jefferson, with classic sideburns. He also ran 1 yard for another).

At night, defending champion Clemson made it 29 straight wins ending Ohio State’s 17 game win skein, as Trevor Lawrence, still undefeated as “Clem” quarterback, threw 2 touchdown passes and ran for another.

Travis Etienne caught the two touchdown passes and also ran for another. Lawrence led a 4 play 94 yard drive that was only 4 plays/ 1 minute 18 seconds in duration, capped by a 31 yard TD to Etienne, with 1:49 to play.

Ohio State drove to the “Clem” 24, however on 2nd and 7 with 47 seconds left, miscommunication manifested in a Nolan Turner interception, that sealed the win for Clemson.

Surely, Ohio State coach Ryan Day has cause for complaint regarding a number of reversed calls, that went vs his Buckeyes.

However, he should look in the mirror/take a math lesson, as he foolishly kicked an extra point up 1 point, with 11 minutes remaining. Clearly the right move was to go for 2 points.

Day did a fine job otherwise and Ohio State had quite a season. Now with LSU Tigers vs Clemson Tigers, Joe Burrow and Trevor Lawrence, it shapes up as quite a title game.
