Husband of Carley McCord dedicates LSU win to late wife
Jan 15 2020
The national championship is just another piece of hardware the LSU star will add to his collection this season.
Get a look at the scene provided in the videos above and below in case you missed it on the broadcast.
Burrow won the Heisman Trophy in a landslide this season, and he accounted for a bowl-record eight touchdowns in the semifinal game against Oklahoma. LSU won the title game over Clemson 42-25. LSU fell behind 17-7 but rallied to take a 28-17 halftime lead.
But while it was known Burrow had talent, the college football landscape didn't expect this. For the night, Burrow completed 31 passes on 49 attempts for 463 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions.
Even though many Clemson football fans are frustrated with the loss, the truth is that the Tigers will be right back in the thick of things next season. They entered the College Football Playoff ranked third, behind fellow undefeated teams in No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Ohio State.
Win or lose Monday, Clemson was going to win as the Tigers have enough returning talent from a 14-1 runner-up national title team to start 2020 where they started 2019: No. 1.
As a result, the Tigers' 29-game winning streak and opportunity to win back-to-back National Championships all came to an end. It's also the first loss for sophomore quarterback Trevor Lawrence, already seen as potentially the No. 1 pick of the 2021 National Football League draft, who had gone 25-0 as Clemson's starter. "But man, we did some really fantastic things".
