LSU's 2019 season finished as perhaps the greatest in college football history. With a record seven wins over top-10 opponents, four wins over top-five opponents, and victories over the previous two national champions and the champions of the Big 12, ACC, SEC East, Orange Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Sugar Bowl, and Citrus Bowl, the Tigers finished 15-0 overall and 8-0 in SEC play. Led by National Coach of the Year Ed Orgeron and Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow, LSU set NCAA records for points and total offense, completing the perfect season with a 42-25 win over Clemson in New Orleans to claim the program's fourth national championship. "This is a team for the ages,” Orgeron said. "We had a tremendous schedule. This is going to be hard to beat."
