President Trump never quite knows for sure what kind of response he’ll get at a sporting event, but it couldn’t have gone any better last night at the College Football National Championship Game in New Orleans. The President and First Lady Melania Trump were greeted with cheers and chants of “USA USA” as they walked onto the field for the national anthem.
LSU’s storybook season ended in storybook fashion Monday night as they came back to beat Clemson, 42-25, to win the 2020 College Football Playoff National Championship.
LSU led by Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow, who racked up 463 yards and completed 31-of-49 passes with six touchdowns and no turnovers.
Clemson had a 17-7 lead in the second quarter before Burrow took over. His favorite target was wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase, whose stats for the game included nine receptions for 221 yards and two touchdowns. (CBS Sports)
