Bill Bender: LSU 38, Clemson 31
“I think matching past quarterback between Tua Tagovailoa and Trevor Lawrence would make the best national title game ever – I was one year off.This year, we will have the next two No. 1 picks in the NFL draft in Lawrence and SN Player of Time Joe Burrow and will make an appearance that looks like the first two Playoff shots between Alabama and Clemson, and we don’t underestimate Clemson at this point: They’re good enough to win – the hero of the last game in a scoring game at second half. LSU and Burrow go to history as one of the greatest teams of all SEC epochon.O Lawrence and Clemson would have to wait until the next battle. – Bender
Mike DeCourcy: LSU 37, Clemson 21
“Watching Clemson escape Ohio State in the semifinals convinced me two things: The Tigers were no better than Ohio State and they are not as good as LSU. LSU will easily run with this game. Clemson will not stop LSU’s offense if it doesn’t fall into the red zone too often. “- DeCourcy

“Lawrence may be Burrow’s best NFL quarterback prospect, but here Burrow will end one of the greatest quarterback seasons in college football history, with a national title going with his Heisman. and Ja’Marr Chase from Lawrence with Tee Higgins and Justyn Ross.LSU will escape with its first championship in a dozen years by exploiting the game’s final possession.
Zac Al-Khateeb: LSU 38, Clemson 28
“The four teams played in the semifinals of the Academy football soccer match on Dec. 28, but only one showed league scoring. Everyone expects LSU to score easily in Oklahoma, but its defensive effort – limiting their So2 turnover – this team not only plays well in all phases of the game, but also peaks at the right time. Credit Clemson for a cute comeback wins over Ohio State, but some are controversial The Buckeyes’ calls and mistakes helped the Tigers win. Clemson would play the way they did in the semifinals, then LSU would travel to a win. Swinney should have Clemson at a higher level at this stage, but that will not be enough against Orgeron, Burrow and Co. “- Al-Hateb
