LSU wins National Championship game over Clemson 42-25, Coach Orgeron celebrates with fried chicken

The LSU Tigers defeated the defending National Champion Clemson Tigers at the Superdome in New Orleans and a apropos location for the ensuing Cajun celebration. Clemson had the longest winning streak at 29 in the nation until meeting up with LSU Quarterback Joe Burrow in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. Burrow lived up to his Heisman Trophy status and threw for 463 yards amid setting the single-season FBS record for touchdown passes. The LSU defense stymied Clemson on third downs holding them to just 1-of-11 and giving Clemson Quarterback Trevor Lawrence his first loss since high school. Lawrence was just 18-of-37 passing for 234 yards. It was the first time that Lawrence completed less than 50% of his passes and just the second time he did not throw for a touchdown since being at Clemson. Coach Ed Orgeron’s road to LSU was made to order just like the fried chicken he celebrated with after the win. After returning to his hotel with his wife Kelly at 2 a.m., Orgeron celebrated with his feast. The next morning Orgeron said “We didn’t know what we was going to eat. Somebody gave us some Popeyes fried chicken, so we took it up in the room, and she ate half of hers and I ate the rest. And then we went to bed.” This is truly a coach who will give LSU fans many years of winning and down to earth anecdotes that the average person can relate to. As a USC fan I say Booyah Coach Orgeron!
