Burrow carried the magic over one more time as LSU ran away with a title. Not only did LSU win, Joe Burrow dominated, again. I was confident that Clemson would end the magical season for Burrow.
I Couldn’t have been more wrong.
Burrow continued to break records and made play after play as LSU cruised through the Clemson defense. Despite playing poor passing defenses and my criticism of inflated stats, none of it was a fluke. Clemson came in with the top rated defense and Joe Burrow shredded them.
I know that was repetitive but it was worth repeating for how great this season actually was for Joe Burrow. It was wrapped up on the biggest stage against the best QB prospect since John Elway.
Even after Clemson took a double digit lead, LSU not only climbed out of that hole, they took a double digit lead.
Clemson was able to pull within three to start the second half and they had the momentum. But it was all down hill from there. Trevor Lawrence would have 13 overthrows and was eratic most of the second half. The Clemson offense would go stagnant and Trevor Lawrence would fumble the ball away with the last chance to make a comeback. LSU and company would take over, eat the clock and wrap up a Cinderella season. LSU walks away with a 42-25 win and Coach O and Joe Burrow get to hoist the trophy in their home town.
A fitting end to an incredible season and an even better career.
