Rankings from AP Poll

The 2019 LSU Tigers football team represented Louisiana State University in the 2019 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Tigers played their home games at Tiger Stadium (nicknamed Death Valley) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and competed in the West Division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC) where they were led by their third-year head coach Ed Orgeron.

LSU began the year ranked sixth in the preseason AP Poll, and were projected to finish in second in the SEC West behind Alabama. The Tigers secured an undefeated regular season that included wins over top-ten-ranked teams Texas, Florida, Auburn, and Alabama. In the SEC Championship Game, LSU defeated Georgia to win their first conference title since 2011. LSU was ranked No. 1 in the final College Football Playoff rankings of the season, earning them a spot in the national semi-final game to be played at the Peach Bowl. They dominated fourth-ranked Oklahoma in that game, 63-28, to advance to the CFP Championship Game. There, they defeated the defending national champions Clemson, 42-25, to secure LSU's fourth claimed national title in school history, the second undefeated champion in the CFP era, and the second 15-0 season among any team in the modern era. Owing to their dominant performance against a historically difficult schedule, several pundits have called the team the greatest in college football history.[1][2][3]

LSU's record-setting offense was led by senior quarterback Joe Burrow, who won the Heisman Trophy by the largest margin in the history of the award, and broke several NCAA FBS records, including most touchdown passes (60), and highest passer rating (202.0). He was accompanied on offense by 1,400-yard running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and two 1,500-yard receivers Ja'Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson, the former winning the Biletnikoff Award as the best wide receiver in the country. The Tigers' offensive line won the Joe Moore Award as the nation's best offensive line unit. LSU's defense was anchored by two All-American defensive backs in Jim Thorpe Award winner Grant Delpit and true freshman Derek Stingley Jr. Linebacker Jacob Phillips led the SEC in tackles. Head coach Ed Orgeron was awarded several national Coach of the Year honors.

Previous season

The Tigers finished the 2018 season 10-3, 5-3 in SEC play to finish in a tie for second place in the West division. They received an invitation to the Fiesta Bowl where they defeated UCF.

Preseason

LSU opened the 2019 season with a home non-conference game against Georgia Southern of the Sun Belt Conference. LSU won in a rout, 55-3.

LSU received the opening kick-off, and scored touchdowns on each of their first five possessions. In the first quarter, the Tigers scored via a 13-yard pass from Joe Burrow to Ja'Marr Chase, a one-yard run by Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and a nine-yard pass from Burrow to Justin Jefferson. To start the second quarter, they scored with two touchdown passes from Burrow to Terrace Marshall Jr., first from eight yards out and then from three yards out. Georgia Southern converted a 47-yard field goal with 5:13 left in the second quarter for their only points of the day. In the final minute of the first half, Burrow threw his fifth touchdown pass of the day, and third to Marshall Jr., from 11 yards out. This tied the LSU school record for single-game touchdown passes. Burrow was given one possession at the start of the second half to try and break the record, but the drive ended in a 39-yard field goal, and Burrow sat the remainder of the game. Backup quarterback Myles Brennan led another touchdown drive in the third quarter, ending in a two-yard touchdown run by Lanard Fournette. In the fourth quarter, kicker Cade York converted a 48-yard field goal to end the scoring for the day.[10][11]

Joe Burrow, who completed 23 of 27 passes for 278 yards and five touchdowns in just over one half of play, was later named SEC Co-Offensive Player of the Week (with Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa).[12] Regarding LSU's upgraded offense, Burrow said after the game, "I wanted 60 tonight. We've definitely come out of the stone age."[11]

LSU's next game was a non-conference road game against ninth-ranked Texas of the Big 12 Conference. The Tigers won in a shootout, 45-38.

In the second quarter, Texas took the lead with a 55-yard touchdown pass from Sam Ehlinger to Brennan Eagles. LSU responded with a six-yard touchdown pass from Joe Burrow to Justin Jefferson.

On Texas's first drive of the second half, they scored on a 19-play, 86-yard drive that ended with a two-yard run by Sam Ehlinger. This was the first of nine consecutive scoring possessions by the two teams. LSU scored next with a 40-yard field goal by York.

LSU extended the lead with a 12-yard touchdown run by Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and then held Texas to a field goal on their next possession. With 2:27 remaining in the game, LSU scored the game-sealing touchdown with a 61-yard pass from Burrow to Justin Jefferson, and converted a two point try with a pass from Burrow to Ja'Marr Chase to make the score 45-31. Texas drove 75 yards in just over two minutes and pulled within a touchdown with a 15-yard pass from Ehlinger to Duvernay with 22 seconds remaining. Their ensuing onside kick attempt failed, and LSU kneeled out the remainder of the clock to win the game.[13][14]

Joe Burrow completed 471 passing yards and four touchdowns in the game, and was named Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week and SEC Offensive Player of the Week.[15][16] His 471 yards were the second most in school history and most since Rohan Davey threw for 528 against Alabama in 2001. Three Tiger players finished with more than 100 yards receiving, a school first: Justin Jefferson, Ja'Marr Chase, and Terrace Marshall Jr.[17] Kicker Cade York, who was 3/3 on field goal attempts, was named SEC Special Teams Player of the Week.[16]

For its third non-conference game of the season, LSU returned home to play in-state FCS foe Northwestern State of the Southland Conference. After a closer-than-expected first half, LSU pulled away for a decisive 65-14 victory. It was the 800th win in LSU program history.

Northwestern State received the opening kickoff, and their first drive ended with a failed fourth-and-seven attempt from the LSU 35 yard line. LSU's opening drive advanced to the Northwestern State eight yard line, but they settled for a 26-yard Cade York field goal. Northwestern State took the lead on the next drive with a 17-yard touchdown pass from Shelton Eppler to Quan Shorts.

Some boos were heard as the home team headed to the locker room, with the score 24-14 at the half.[18]

In the second half, LSU removed all doubt by scoring touchdowns on each of their first four possessions and holding Northwestern State scoreless for the remainder of the game. The Tigers scored first with a five-yard touchdown run from Joe Burrow, then a six-yard touchdown pass from Burrow to Marshall Jr., then a four-yard touchdown run from John Emery Jr., after which Burrow was pulled from the game.

Joe Burrow had 357 passing yards at half-time, a school record.[20]

To open the second half, LSU's Micah Baskerville returned a Vanderbilt onside kick attempt 46 yards to the one yard line, after which Burrow threw his fifth touchdown pass to Racey McMath.

After a second bye week, LSU traveled to Tuscaloosa to play rival Alabama. Heading into the game, LSU was ranked No. 1 and Alabama No. 2 in the AP Poll. The season's first College Football Playoff rankings were released on the Tuesday prior to the game, with LSU ranked No. 2 and Alabama ranked No. 3. Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who was only 20 days removed from a minor ankle surgery, was making his return, and the battle between him and Joe Burrow was expected to play a major role in the Heisman Trophy race.[31] Adding even more aura of spectacle to the game was the attendance of President Donald Trump.[32] Alabama was a six-point betting favorite heading into the game.[33] LSU won the game in a shootout, 46-41.

On Alabama's opening possession, the Crimson Tide advanced to the LSU 8-yard line, but the ball slipped out of Tua Tagovailoa's hand for a fumble, recovered by LSU's Ray Thornton. LSU responded with a touchdown drive ending with a 33-yard pass from Joe Burrow to Ja'Marr Chase. Alabama gave LSU a short field again when they fumbled a punt snap on their next drive, after which LSU scored via a 40-yard field goal by Cade York. Alabama got on the board late in the first quarter with a 77-yard punt return touchdown by Jaylen Waddle. Early in the second quarter, LSU scored with a 29-yard pass from Burrow to Terrace Marshall Jr. Alabama pulled within three with a 64-yard touchdown pass from Tagovailoa to DeVonta Smith. After a 45-yard field goal by York with 4:20 remaining in the first half, LSU scored again with a one-yard touchdown run by Clyde Edwards-Helaire with 26 seconds remaining. Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa threw an interception on their next play, returned by LSU's Patrick Queen to the Alabama 26-yard line. LSU was able to score after a 15-yard penalty on Alabama and then a 13-yard pass from Burrow to Edwards-Helaire to make the score 33-13 at half-time.

In the third quarter, Alabama scored with a 15-yard touchdown pass from Tagovailoa to Najee Harris. Early in the fourth quarter, Harris scored again on a one-yard run, to make the score 33-27 LSU. LSU then scored with a five-yard run by Edwards-Helaire, but Alabama pulled within a score again with a five-yard touchdown pass from Tagovailoa to Jerry Jeudy with 5:32 remaining. LSU went up 46-34 with 1:37 remaining with a seven-yard touchdown run by Edwards-Helaire, but Alabama scored on their next play with an 85-yard touchdown pass from Tagovailoa to DeVonta Smith with 1:21 remaining. Alabama's onside kick attempt was recovered by LSU's Justin Jefferson, and, after a first down run by Edwards-Helaire, LSU kneeled out the rest of the clock to win the game, 46-41.[34]

LSU's 46 points were the most ever scored on Alabama in Bryant-Denny Stadium in regulation. The win also snapped an eight-game losing streak to Alabama by LSU. Joe Burrow finished with 31-of-39 attempts for 393 yards and three touchdowns. He earned his second Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week honors for the performance.[35] Burrow was named SEC Co-Offensive Player of the Week, sharing the award with teammate Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who had 180 total yards and four total touchdowns (three rushing, one receiving).[36] Ja'Marr Chase had 140 receiving yards and a touchdown in the game.[37]

LSU responded with a seven-yard touchdown pass from Burrow to Jefferson, and then converted a 52-yard field goal after an Ole Miss interception to make the score 44-23 heading into the fourth quarter. Early in the final quarter, Joe Burrow threw an interception, and Ole Miss scored on the next play with a 35-yard run by Plumlee. Burrow threw another interception on the next drive, but the LSU defense forced a turnover on downs. LSU scored with a 61-yard touchdown pass from Burrow to Chase on the next drive. Ole Miss scored its last points with 3:19 to go with a 55-yard pass from Matt Corral to Elijah Moore, but LSU scored once again on the next play with a 49-yard touchdown run by Clyde Edwards-Helaire, which ended the scoring at 58-37.[38]

For the second-to-last game of the regular season, LSU faced rival Arkansas in a battle for the Golden Boot, and with an opportunity to secure LSU's spot in the SEC Championship Game with a win. LSU did just that with a 56-20 victory.

LSU scored on the game's opening drive with a 37-yard touchdown pass from Joe Burrow to Ja'Marr Chase. Arkansas converted two field goals, from 24 yards and 47 yards, to make the score 7-6 midway through the second quarter. LSU scored touchdowns on their final three possessions of the first half via a two-yard run by Tyrion Davis-Price, a 27-yard run by Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and a 10-yard pass from Burrow to Justin Jefferson, to make the score 28-6 at half-time.

Arkansas opened the second-half with a missed 45-yard field goal attempt. LSU fumbled on its first possession, but then the Tigers scored on four consecutive possessions, with a 50-yard pass from Burrow to Chase, a 26-yard run by Edwards-Helaire, an 89-yard run by Edwards-Helaire, and a 39-yard run by John Emery Jr. The score was then 56-6 early in the fourth quarter. Arkansas then scored with a 24-yard pass from Mike Woods to Jack Lindsey, then recovered an onside kick attempt and scored with a two-yard run by Devwah Whaley to end the scoring on the day at 56-20.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire had his fourth consecutive 100-yard game by running for a career-high 188 yards and three touchdowns. Joe Burrow passed for 327 yards and three touchdowns. Ja'Marr Chase added 144 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Linebacker Jacoby Stevens, who had a career high three sacks and four tackles for loss, was named SEC Defensive Player of the Week.

LSU's regular season finale was against Texas A&M. The previous meeting between the two schools tied the NCAA record for most overtimes (seven) and set the FBS record for most combined points in a game (146), in which the Tigers lost to the Aggies, 74-72. The 2019 game was not nearly as close, as LSU secured an undefeated regular season with a 50-7 blowout win. Quarterback Joe Burrow, in his final home game as a Tiger, made a pregame introduction to great fanfare wearing a jersey with the name "Burreaux" on the back, paying tribute to the French heritage of the state and university.[42]

LSU jumped out to a 31-0 lead by scoring on each of their first five possessions. The Tigers received the opening kickoff and scored in six plays with a five-yard touchdown run by Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Their next drive ended with a 12-yard touchdown pass from Joe Burrow to Justin Jefferson. Late in the first quarter, they scored again with a 78-yard pass from Burrow to Ja'Marr Chase. In the second quarter, LSU scored with a four-yard touchdown run by Tyrion Davis-Price, and a 51-yard field goal by Cade York. The score was 31-0 at half-time. In the third quarter, LSU's Cade York converted a 50-yard field goal, and then Texas A&M scored their only points of the day with a one-yard run by Isaiah Spiller. LSU responded with an 18-yard touchdown pass from Burrow to Chase, then intercepting a pass from Texas A&M's Kellen Mond, and scoring another touchdown, a 58-yard pass from backup quarterback Myles Brennan to Racey McMath. Late in the fourth quarter, the Tigers pinned the Aggies at their own 1-yard line with a punt, and then Neil Farrell Jr. sacked James Foster in the endzone for a safety to end the scoring on the day at 50-7.[43]

Joe Burrow had 352 passing yards and three touchdowns in the game, and in the process set the SEC record for single-season passing yards previously held by Kentucky's Tim Couch, and tied the SEC record for single-season passing touchdowns, shared with Missouri's Drew Lock.[42]

LSU, as undefeated champions of the SEC West Division, faced off against 11-1 East Division champion Georgia in the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta. Heading into the game, LSU was ranked second and Georgia fourth in the College Football Playoff rankings. There was widespread speculation that both teams could possibly make it into the playoff, depending on the outcome of the game.[44] LSU was considered a 7.5-point betting favorite.[45] LSU removed all doubt about its resume by winning comfortably, 37-10. This was LSU's 16th conference championship in school history, its 12th in the Southeastern Conference, and first since 2011.

After a Georgia punt on the game's opening possession, LSU opened the scoring with a 23-yard touchdown pass from Joe Burrow to Ja'Marr Chase. LSU scored again late in the first quarter after a Georgia missed field goal attempt with a seven-yard pass from Burrow to Terrace Marshall Jr. Georgia got on the board early in the second quarter with a 39-yard field goal by Rodrigo Blankenship. LSU's Cade York converted his own field goal, from 41 yards out, with 2:22 remaining in the half. Georgia's next possession ended in a Jake Fromm interception to Derek Stingley Jr., but LSU's 48-yard field goal attempt missed with 14 seconds to go kept the score at 17-3 LSU at half-time.

LSU's opening possession of the second half ended with a 28-yard field goal by York, and Georgia's ensuing possession resulted in a 37-yard miss by Blankenship. LSU then quickly widened its lead with an 80-yard drive that included a 71-yard pass from Burrow to Justin Jefferson and ended with a four-yard touchdown pass from Burrow to Marshall Jr., followed by another interception of Fromm by Stingley Jr., and then an eight-yard touchdown pass from Burrow to Jefferson to make the score 34-3 at the end of the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, Georgia scored its only touchdown via a two-yard pass from Fromm to George Pickens, and LSU scored with a 50-yard field goal by York to end the scoring at 37-10.[46]

Joe Burrow's performance, with 349 passing yards, four touchdowns, 41 rushing yards, and a 16-yard reception, was described by the Associated Press as "completing his Heisman Trophy coronation". He was named MVP of the game. Justin Jefferson had seven receptions for 115 yards and a touchdown.[47]

1-1 2004 Sugar Bowl W, 21-14

In the final College Football Playoff rankings of the year, LSU moved from second to first, passing Ohio State, who had beaten Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game, 34-21. LSU's opponent in the CFP semi-final, the Peach Bowl, was fourth-ranked Oklahoma, champions of the Big 12 Conference at 12-1. LSU entered the game as 13.5-point betting favorites.[48] LSU exceeded those high expectations by winning 63-28.

After an Oklahoma three-and-out to open the game, LSU scored in three plays with a 19-yard touchdown pass from Joe Burrow to Justin Jefferson. After trading three-and-outs, Oklahoma responded with a three-yard touchdown run by Kennedy Brooks. The score was tied at 7-7, but LSU put the game out of reach by scoring touchdowns on each of their next seven possessions. Before the end of the first quarter, they scored via an eight-yard pass from Burrow to Terrace Marshall Jr., and a 35-yard pass from Burrow to Jefferson. In the second quarter, LSU scored with a 42-yard pass from Burrow to Jefferson, then a 30-yard pass from Burrow to Jefferson. Oklahoma temporarily stopped the bleeding with a two-yard touchdown run by Jalen Hurts, but LSU responded with a 62-yard touchdown pass from Burrow to Thaddeus Moss and a two-yard pass from Burrow to Marshall Jr. before the half. The score at half-time was 49-14. Joe Burrow had seven touchdown passes in the first half, which tied the all-time NCAA full-game bowl record, and Justin Jefferson's four touchdown receptions also tied the all-time full-game bowl record.[49]

LSU opened the second half with a touchdown drive that ended with a two-yard run by Burrow, his eighth touchdown of the day, after which he and most other offensive starters were benched. Oklahoma's next possession ended with a 12-yard touchdown run by Hurts. After a missed 46-yard field goal attempt by LSU's Cade York early in the fourth quarter, Oklahoma scored again with a one-yard touchdown run by T.J. Pledger. LSU scored once more with a six-yard touchdown run by John Emery Jr. with 3:59 remaining to end the scoring at 63-28.[50]

Joe Burrow had 493 passing yards, seven passing touchdowns, and a rushing touchdown in just over one half of play; he was named Offensive MVP of the game. Linebacker K'Lavon Chaisson was named Defensive MVP after finishing with two sacks and six tackles.[51] Justin Jefferson finished with 14 receptions for 227 yards and four touchdowns in the game.

2-1 2012 Chick-fil-A Bowl L, 24-25

By winning the Peach Bowl, LSU advanced to the College Football Playoff National Championship to play the winner of the Fiesta Bowl, third-seeded Clemson. The game was played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, mirroring LSU's previous appearances in national championship games in 2012, 2008, and 2004. Clemson was the defending national champion and on a 29-game winning streak, but LSU was considered a 5.5-point betting favorite heading into the game.[52]

To open the game, both teams were forced to punt on each of their first two possessions. Clemson opened the scoring with a one-yard touchdown run by quarterback Trevor Lawrence. LSU evened the score with a 52-yard touchdown pass from Joe Burrow to Ja'Marr Chase. Early in the second quarter, Clemson regained the lead with a 52-yard field goal by B.T. Potter, and then extended the lead on their next possession with a 36-yard touchdown run by Tee Higgins. LSU scored touchdowns on their next three possessions to close out the first half: first on a three-yard run by Burrow, then a 14-yard pass from Burrow to Chase, and then a six-yard pass from Burrow to Thaddeus Moss with 10 seconds remaining in the half. The score was 28-17 LSU at half-time.

In the third quarter, Clemson pulled within three with a three-yard touchdown run by Travis Etienne and a successful two-point conversion via a pass from Lawrence to Amari Rodgers. LSU extended the lead with a four-yard touchdown pass from Burrow to Moss late in the quarter. Early in the fourth quarter, LSU scored again, with a 24-yard touchdown pass from Burrow to Terrace Marshall Jr. to make the score 42-25. LSU's defense held Clemson scoreless throughout the fourth quarter to help seal the victory.[53]

With the win, LSU finished as undefeated College Football Playoff champions, and were later crowned unanimous national champions by the polls. This was LSU's fourth claimed national title in school history, and first since the 2007 season. It was their first undefeated season since 1958, and the second ever 15-0 season by any FBS team in the modern era (after Clemson the previous season). Joe Burrow had 463 passing yards and five touchdowns in the game, and was named Offensive MVP. Linebacker Patrick Queen had eight total tackles, including 0.5 sacks and 2.5 tackles for loss and was named Defensive MVP.[54]
