Clemson Vs. LSU 2020 CFP National Championship Game Tickets [Date, Deals & Ticket Info]
Attention, college football fans: tickets for the 2020 College Football Playoff National Championship Game are now on sale!
This year’s national title matchup will see top-ranked LSU play No. 3 Clemson — both nicknamed the Tigers — at the New Orleans Saints’ Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Jan. 13. The game is set to begin at 8 p.m. EST and will be aired on ESPN.
Defending champions Clemson are back in the CFP game for the fourth time in the last five years. During that time span, the Tigers played fellow powerhouse Alabama three times and defeated the Crimson Tide twice (in 2019 and 2017). In 2016, Alabama won the title game 45-40.
Meanwhile, LSU is playing in its very first CFP, so this year’s game should be exciting.
Clemson recently beat Ohio State in the final moments of the 2019 Fiesta Bowl, while LSU reached the CFP by routing Oklahoma 63-28 in the Peach Bowl. The Buckeyes beat Oregon in the 2015 CFP title game, the first year the contest was held.
Clemson is led by star quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who is believed to be the No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick in 2021. He has logged 36 passing touchdowns (for fifth in the country) and 3,431 yards this season. Meanwhile, LSU’s 6-foot-4, 216-pound signal caller Joe Burrow is first in the nation in passing touchdowns with 55 and is second in total yards with 5,208. He needs just three more TDs to tie the FBS record for a single season. Burrow is expected to be a top NFL draft pick this year.
Given that Clemson is on a 29-game winning streak, including 25-0 with Lawrence starting, the Tigers have much to feel confident about heading into this year’s CFP title game.
