2. The turnover margin
The winner of this game may very well be the team that commits the least turnovers.
Dabo Swinney has always maintained that if Clemson wins the turnover margin, the Tigers will win the game. That statement may not have ever been truer.
With LSU’s prolific offense, it would certainly do Clemson some good to force a turnover or two to get off the field and limit those possessions for Joe Burrow.
Both Clemson and LSU have done an excellent job this season at not turning the ball over, but we’ll see if that continues Monday night.
