The LSU Tigers will take on the Clemson Tigers in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans for the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday night, January 13 at 7 p.m. on ESPN.

Clemson clinched their spot in the title game with a 29-23 win over Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl following LSU’s blowout win over Oklahoma on Saturday.

Clemson, of course, are the defending champs after housing Alabama 44-16 following the 2018 season, and have won two of the last three national titles, all against Bama.

Should be a helluva party, and one of the toughest tickets New Orleans has ever seen.
