LSU vs Oklahoma live score, updates highlights from College Football Playoff semifinal 2519

No 1 LSU and No. 4 Oklahoma faces the Orange Cup on Saturday, the first of the semifinals of the college football football match that will determine who plays in the national championship game.

On the surface, the encounter between these two teams looks like it could be an offensive penalty shoot-out. The Tigers and Sooners rank first and second in the FBS with an average of 554.3 and 554.2 yards per game, respectively. They also rank third and sixth, with an average of 47.8 and 43.2 points per game, respectively.

But both teams’ defense has fared better as the season has progressed: LSU has lost 17 points in its last two games against Georgia and Texas A&M and Oklahoma has had quite a few key defensive games in the Big 12 championship over from Baylor. The key for both teams will be to limit the offensive leaders to LSU quarterback Joe Burrow and Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Burrow, the 2019 Troy Heathman winner and Sporting News Player of the Year, could be the most important player in the entire Playoff. He has completed 342 of 439 passes for 4,715 yards and 48 touchdowns in just six interceptions. Pain, meanwhile, has completed 222 of 309 passes for 3,634 yards and 32 passing touchdowns and seven interceptions, adding 1,255 rushing yards and 18 points.
