LSU Beats Clemson for National Championship
Joe Burrow's latest performance has turned the LSU Tigers into CFP champions.
The Heisman Trophy winner threw for 463 yards and five touchdowns as the boys from Baton Rouge whipped the defending-champion Clemson Tigers, 42-25.
Burrow also ran for 58 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries while guiding LSU to its third national championship since the 2003 season.
The five TD passes and 463 yards passing are the most for a BCS or College Football Playoff title game as are his six total touchdowns.
Burrow is the first major college quarterback to throw 60 touchdown passes in a season.
Ja'Marr Chase was Burrow's favourite target with nine receptions for 221 yards and two scores.
Thaddeus Moss also had two touchdown grabs as LSU completed a 15-0 season while ending Clemson's 29-game winning streak.
