Led by Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Joe Burrow's six-touchdown performance, Ed Orgeron's top-ranked Fighting Tigers of LSU earned the title 2019 National Champions and arguably The Best Team Ever.

LSU (15-0) proved its dominant season by ending Clemson's 29-game winning streak in a 42-25 victory over the defending champs.

Burrow was 31-of-49 passing for 463 yards with five touchdown passes, while adding another 58 rushing yards and including a TD run.



After facing its biggest deficit of the season — 17-7 early in the second quarter — LSU scored 21 unanswered points to lead 28-17 at halftime. Though Clemson narrowed the margin to three, LSU scored the final 14 points of the contest.
