LSU’s Perfect Season

Dillon Sheehan, Staff Writer

Louisiana State University football had a perfect season, finishing off undefeated and winning the national title.  

Heisman winning superstar quarterback, Joe Burrow, is 23 and led the Tigers to the national championship.

Burrow began his collegiate career at Ohio State where he was the backup quarterback to Dwayne Haskins, who now plays for the Washington Redskins. Burrow later transferred to LSU in May, 2018. He was the first LSU quarterback to throw 350 yards in three consecutive games, and later threw 344 yards and 5 touchdowns in a win against Utah State, becoming the first Tiger to throw 300+ yards in four consecutive games.

The Tigers went 15-0 in the regular season.  The last time the Tigers had a record like that was in 1958.

This year, the LSU Tigers played the Clemson Tigers for the national championship and won 42-25, which was a flawless ending to the perfect season.

This season, the LSU Tigers made a name for themselves as one of the greatest college football teams of all time. The Tigers team chemistry was near impeccable, and by the end of the season, Burrow was so in sync with his wideouts that he had a 76.2% pass completion.

Having a connection with each individual teammate is extremely helpful no matter what the sport is. It always helps to have someone who will be exactly where you want them to be, and the chemistry between this Tigers team showed in the championship game where Burrow threw 63.3% pass completion, with 463 yards and 5 touchdowns.

This LSU Tigers team will go down in history for being one of the greatest college football teams, influenced by its team chemistry and long shot leader Joe Burrow, who potentially will be the NFL 2020 first overall pick.
