College football’s biggest day has arrived. The National Championship Game is set to unfold tonight in New Orleans, pitting two Tigers against each other. LSU smoked Oklahoma in the first round of the playoff, while Clemson — with the help of some questionable calls from the officials — found a way to beat Ohio State.

The game will feature the next two likely No. 1 overall picks of the NFL Draft. Quarterbacks Joe Burrow and Trevor Lawrence will square off for all the marbles in a fascinating look at the next generation of NFL signal callers.

Both teams enter the game undefeated, but Vegas sees a clear favorite. LSU opened and has held firm as a five point favorite. The total sits at 70.5 points, as of this afternoon.
