NEW ORLEANS — Third-ranked Clemson jumped out to a hot start and seemed to confuse LSU quarterback Joe Burrow in the first quarter. But the Bayou Bengals surged ahead to take a 28-17 lead into the break.
Burrow completed 16-of-28 passes for 270 yards and three touchdowns including a 56 yard bomb to get the LSU offense rolling.
Clemson running back Travis Etienne jumped out to a good start with 70 yards on 10 carries in the first half and three receptions for 34 yards.
