The Louisiana State University football team, led by Head Coach and Louisiana native Ed Orgeron, completed their undefeated season and earned the title of National Champions in this year’s College Football Playoff National Championship. The No. 1 ranked LSU Tigers faced the No. 3 ranked Clemson Tigers in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, La. on Jan. 13. The LSU Tigers dominated the Clemson Tigers with a final score of 42-25.
Wesleyan faculty and students were getting excited about the game. Dawson Zimmerman, former Clemson punter and current high school English teacher, was enthusiastic about the game. Zimmerman said, “I think we’ve done a great job this season. I had some doubts coming into the year that we would be able to return back to the National Championship, but the team has done a great job of exceeding my expectations, and I am excited that we get to do it again.” Students were also very thrilled about the upcoming game. Clemson fan and sophomore Brooks Thomason said, “I hope Trevor Lawrence performs well, and of course the rest of the team, but my ultimate hope is to win the game.”
