LSU beats Clemson 42-25 in battle of Tigers for CFP National Championship

By  | 

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Clemson's defense had far more to worry about than Heisman Trophy quarterback Joe Burrow and Biletnikoff winning receiver Ja'Marr Chase of LSU. Clyde Edwards-Helaire gained 164 yards from scrimmage. Tight end Thaddeus Moss had two touchdowns as a productive red zone target. Receiver Justin Jefferson kept drives going with nine catches for 106 yards. Terrace Marshall Jr. made his last of three catches count. It was a leaping 24-yard touchdown that put Clemson in a three-score hole as LSU rolled to the national championship.
