One of these cats has to lose. The Tigers of LSU and the Tigers of Clemson have each run their record to a perfect 14-0 on the year. LSU was the conference champion of the SEC and then blew out Oklahoma in the first semifinal of the College Football Playoff. Clemson won the ACC before knocking out Ohio State in the other semifinal game. The two teams will meet on Monday night for college football's national championship.
The game will feature plenty of future NFL talent, including Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow of LSU, who many expect to be the first pick of the NFL draft. On the other side of the field, quarterback Trevor Lawrence led Clemson to the national title last year and is the favorite to be the first pick in next year's draft.
The CFP National Championship kicks off on Monday, Jan. 13 at 8 p.m. ET (7 p.m. CT) and will be broadcast on ESPN.
How to stream the National Championship
In addition to the main broadcast on ESPN, there will be alternate broadcasts across ESPN's family of channels including Field Pass on ESPN2 (sideline commentary from Adam Amin, Steve Levy and others), Coaches Film Room on ESPNU (coaches sitting around a table, breaking down the action), Command Center on ESPNews (multiple views with stats and charts) and DataCenter on ESPN Goal Line (the main telecast but with stats, social media posts and more). ESPN will also show the main telecast but with the hometown radio calls for each team; LSU on the SEC Network, and Clemson on the ACC Network. Lastly, ESPN Deportes will carry the Spanish-language broadcast.
