WILL 2 TIGERS BURN BRIGHT?

By Marc Lawrence — Should the two Tigers teams win today, Clemson will play for its third title in four years, while LSU will play for its first national championship since 2007. On the other side, the key for Oklahoma is about more than quarterback and Heisman finalist Jalen Hurts. While Hurts can beat just about anyone on the ground, he needs to connect with star wide receiver CeeDee Lamb as much as possible. The Tigers are ranked 57th nationally in yards per game allowed and are giving up 12.53 yards per completion. Their defense isn’t what LSU fans have been used to, and to have a chance at winning, Oklahoma needs to take advantage. In the other game, behind QB Trevor Lawrence, Clemson’s offense could do some serious damage. For Ohio State, Heisman finalist Chase Young could change the course of the game. He leads the nation with 16.5 sacks this season in 11 games. Click here to read more on these two games.
