The Tigers have landed on the scoreboard in 49 of the 52 quarters they’ve played and topped the opposition by double-digits in 29 of their 38 victories under coach Ed Orgeron.

Quarterback Joe Burrow has been instrumental in LSU’s offensive eruption this year, as he set the SEC single-season record with 48 touchdown passes. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner is three away from becoming just the third quarterback in FBS history with more than 50. Burrow has been unstoppable of late, throwing for over 300 yards in an LSU-record seven consecutive contests.

Despite their electric offense, the Tigers are not guaranteed to cover the LSU vs. Oklahoma spread in the Peach Bowl 2019.

The Sooners’ run of five straight outright conference titles is the longest by a Power Five team since Alabama’s streak of five from 1971-75. It also marks the first time Oklahoma has captured this many consecutive crowns since winning the Big 8 title every year from 1972-80. The Sooners are the second team in the 24-year history of the Big 12 (Nebraska in 1997) to lead the conference in total offense (526.9 yards) and total defense (330.6) during league play.

Hurts is aiming to appear in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game for the fourth consecutive year after getting there with Alabama the last three seasons. The senior transfer has accounted for 51 total touchdowns this season, the third-most in school history behind Sam Bradford (55 in 2008) and Kyler Murray (54 last year). Hurts’ favorite target is wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, who has recorded six 100-yard performances in 2019 after gaining 173 on eight catches in the conference title game.
