Clemson, the reigning champion, is aiming to secure the program’s third national title in four seasons.

This season, no team boasted a more prolific offense than the Joe Burrow-led LSU scoring attack. The Bayou Bengals lead the nation in both points and yards per game.The championship will be decided in what will be an unfriendly environment to Clemson in New Orleans.
The undefeated defending national champions are almost a touchdown underdog in the 2020 College Football Playoff National Championship. Go figure. Nobody said it made sense for No. 3 Clemson. All the Tigers are doing is playing in their fourth national title game in five years. A win gives them three titles in four years. For the moment, No. 1 LSU is overshadowing even those accomplishments. The home-standing Tigers have perhaps the most explosive offense in the game. They certainly have the support of a city, a region and a state.
Here are five things Clemson must do in order to pull off the upset (at least, based on the +6 point spread), win its 30th straight game and capture a national title on Monday night. 1. Brent Venables must have something special for LSU: The central question in this game is whether Clemson’s defensive play-calling genius can slow down quarterback Joe Burrow and LSU’s offense. Few have. But this is the No. 1 scoring offense (LSU) against the No. 1 scoring defense (Clemson). Venables has to have a big night for his Tigers to pull off the upset.
He succeeded in confusing Ohio State’s Justin Fields just enough (two interceptions) in the Fiesta Bowl semifinal to aid Clemson’s comeback from 16 points down. Venables threw all kinds of looks at the Buckeyes — two rushers, stand-up rushers (the so-called “radar” defense) and a package of blitzes. This time, we’re talking about slowing down the Heisman Trophy winner who has the second-most touchdown passes ever in a season (55).
