Who’s ready for the College Football Championship Game?! At ISM, we are! Clemson faces LSU in close to a home game for the “Cajun” Tigers who have a short drive down I-10 to challenge last year’s Champions. Both teams are 14-0 and Clemson is a stunning 11-3 ATS, yet they are an underdog (for only the 1st time this season!) Clemson has won 2 of the last 3 National Championships, recorded at least 10 wins each season since 2011, and are riding a 29 win streak headed into the game! The last time Clemson was listed as an underdog, they scorched Alabama 44-16… in the 2019 Championship Game.
However, this LSU team is definitely not the same as Clemson’s 2019 Alabama opponent (or any LSU team in memory!) In the 2018 season, ‘Bama was a very respectable 6th in total yards, passing, and points per game. This LSU team is 1st, 2nd, and 1st in the same categories respectively. (Clemson was 3rd, 19th, and 4th in the same categories this year.)
Defensively, Clemson is 1st in the nation in points allowed (10.6 per game) and in total yards allowed (244.7 per game). LSU is ranked 26th and 31st respectively.
Whatever the outcome on January 13th, two things are certain: Tigers will win and ISM will be there celebrating with our clients and guests!!
