LSU vs Oklahoma: Burrow, Hurts lead Peach Bowl clash

92 0

LSU vs Oklahoma College Football playoff

Three years ago, LSU fired its longtime coach, promoted his assistant in a move many chided and seemed far removed from reaching the College Football Playoff. Turns out, the Tigers aren’t just any other playoff team—they’re the No. 1 seed, playing No. 4 Oklahoma in the Peach Bowl on Dec. 28.

LSU’s rout of then-No. 4 Georgia on Saturday in the SEC championship game was enough to lift Ed Orgeron’s team to the top spot in the CFP committee’s rankings, continuing one of the best stories in college football. Orgeron, a Louisiana native who replaced Les Miles in 2016 after a failed coaching stint at Ole Miss, has led his home-state squad to the pinnacle of the sport, hiring a 30-year-old wunderkind to overhaul an offense captained by the surefire Heisman Trophy winner, quarterback Joe Burrow.

Their competition? An Oklahoma team led by a familiar face. Alabama transfer Jalen Hurts will play his third game as a starting quarterback against the Tigers. Hurts leads a Sooners squad that needed overtime to beat Baylor in the Big 12 title game Saturday after needing Utah to lose in the Pac-12 championship. In end, though, they’re here again for a fourth time in the sixth year of the playoff, a meeting between two storied programs that clashed for the BCS championship in 2003 (LSU won that, 21–14).

Thanks for watching!
