Clemson vs. LSU: How to watch 2020 College Football Playoff National Championship Game Online
It’s the battle of the Tigers in the 2020 College Football Playoff National Championship Game. When the No. 3 Clemson Tigers take on the No. 1 LSU Tigers, there should be talent galore Monday night at Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Like most games, this all starts with two star quarterbacks. LSU’s Joe Burrow was this season’s Heisman Trophy winner and the likely No. 1 pick in 2020 NFL Draft. Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence started off slow this season, but has all the talent in the world and is seen as the top pick in the 2021 draft.
In reality, there will be talent all over the field. Both teams have first-round talents on both sides of the ball and head coaches who can capture a room like nobody else.
Whoever takes home the title this year, will be ending a long winning streak, too. Clemson enters the national championship with a 29-game win streak, while LSU has 15 straight victories.
This should be a game full of action, and the front offices of the 49ers and Raiders should be locked in. With the Raiders having two first-round picks, and the 49ers selecting at the end of Round 1, these two teams could have their eyes on two dominant college programs.
Buckle up, we’re in for a fun ride.

What to Know
The LSU Tigers and the Clemson Tigers have had some time off and are no doubt ready to hit the field. LSU and Clemson will play for all the marbles in the CFP Championship on Monday at Mercedes-Benz Superdome at 8 p.m. ET. Whoever wins takes the crown and caps off a perfect 15-0 season.
When you finish with 381 more yards than your opponent like LSU did two weeks ago, a favorable outcome is almost sure to follow. They took their contest with ease, bagging a 63-28 win over the Oklahoma Sooners. QB Joe Burrow was a one-man wrecking crew for LSU, passing for seven TDs and 493 yards on 39 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown. Burrow’s 62-yard touchdown toss to TE Thaddeus Moss in the second quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the evening.
Meanwhile, Clemson received the perfect holiday gift two weeks ago. They managed a 29-23 victory over the Ohio State Buckeyes. QB Trevor Lawrence had a stellar game for Clemson as he passed for two TDs and 259 yards on 33 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 107 yards. This was the first time Lawrence has racked up 100+ rushing yards all year.
LSU is now 14-0 while Clemson sits at 14-0. LSU and Clemson are both 13-0 after wins this season, but that symmetry won’t hold for long.
