4. The battle in the trenches
LSU and Clemson both have plenty of talent when you look up-front.
When all things are considered, it looks as if both offensive lines will have advantages over the defensive lines.
LSU’s defensive line and front-seven is nowhere near the level of Ohio State’s, but the Tigers still have some muscle up-front and the Clemson offensive line has had times where it has struggled this season to get the job done- especially early.
Clemson’s defensive line will also be tasked with getting pressure on Joe Burrow against a talented offensive line. If they can’t do that, he’ll have time to sit back and throw- and that won’t be a good thing for the ACC Tigers.
