Burrow, back 

There’s the Joe Burrow America got to know so well this past year. 

Finally given manageable field position, and boosted by the hard running of Edwards-Helaire earlier in the drive, Burrow found receiver Ja’Marr Chase for a 52-yard deep ball down the right sideline to tie the game at 7-7.

Giving Burrow time in the pocket and a one-on-one matchup on the outside to one of his electric receivers was a stark contrast from how Venables and the Clemson defense handled LSU through most of the first quarter. 

Clemson strikes first

Third time’s the charm for Clemson. A questionable blindside block call erased some of a 42-yard gain on the drive’s first play, a play-action completion up the seam to previously suspended tight end Braden Galloway.

Clemson kept rolling from there and scored four plays later on a rushing touchdown by Lawrence, who continues to be a threat with his legs. He rushed for a career-high 107 yards on 16 attempts against Ohio State in the CFP semifinal. 

Clemson leads 7-0 with LSU still in search of its initial first down.
