The upcoming battle between Trevor Lawrence and Joe Burrow may go down as the greatest QB match-up in College Football history.
Trevor Lawrence has never lost a game in College Football career. Joe Burrow just put up astronomical numbers and won the Heisman.
Now, the two will match-up in New Orleans to determine who will be crowned the 2019 National Champion.
We all know about LSU QB Joe Burrow.
Burrow has had a magical season, completing 77.6 percent of his passes for 5,208 yards and 55 touchdowns to just six interceptions. His performance on the field earned him the Heisman Trophy and now Burrow is expected to be one of the top selections in this coming spring’s NFL Draft.
Burrow has done an excellent job finding the open man and leading LSU to the top offensive attack in the nation.
But let’s not forget about Trevor Lawrence.
When Lawrence takes the field on Monday night, he’ll be putting an impressive winning streak on the line as he is currently 26-0 as the starter. In addition to winning, Lawrence has been on a tear through the last three months of the Clemson football season and no one has taken notice.
Trevor Lawrence has thrown 202 consecutive passing attempts without an interception. That streak is the longest active streak in the nation and the longest in Clemson football history, according to Tim Bourrett.
In the last seven games, Lawrence has completed 110-of-180 passing attempts (61.1 percent) for 1,897 yards and 22 touchdowns to no interceptions. He has also rushed for 327 yards and three touchdowns.
Burrow has the advantage when it comes to stats. Lawrence has the advantage when it comes to experience, which is a crazy thing to say about a guy who is just finishing up his sophomore season. Both of the guys are extremely talented.
This is the best match-up between quarterbacks in a National Championship game since Vince Young and Matt Leinart back in 2005, in my opinion, and probably the best we’ve seen talent-wise since we saw Deshaun Watson and Lamar Jackson play against each another a few years ago.
The stakes are high. The talent is there. This National Championship has all the makings of becoming an instant College Football classic, but in the end it will all come down to this:
The epic quarterback battle between Trevor Lawrence and Joe Burrow.
