The LSU football team will take the field at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in New Orleans on Monday, January 13 as they attempt to knock off the defending national champion Clemson Tigers in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.
Leading up to the game, the LSU video department has been hard at work pumping out some incredible hype videos that have had fans eager for the title game and the final trailer may have been their best yet.
The final hype video is narrated by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
LSU and its explosive offense are led by Heisman Trophy winner and projected No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft Joe Burrow.
Ed Orgeron’s squad leads the nation in total yards with 564.1 yards per game and is second in the nation in passing with 397.2 yards per game. It will be interesting to see how Burrow and company stack up against the nation’s top defense.
