The LA Rams fans are in for a treat with the 2020 NCAA Championship game airing Monday January 13 at 5 pm PST
For the LA Rams, post-season has been a time of passive viewing. But at 5 pm PST, the 2020 NCAA Championship game airs for an eager national audience on ESPN and online on WatchESPN.
So how does this game play into the Rams future? Well, it’s a showcase of incredible collegiate talent, some of whom will be on the 2020 NFL Draft board when the LA Rams select new players.
Tonight’s game will be played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
First and foremost, who are the teams involved?
What to watch for when defending NCAA champions Clemson has the ball:
Clemson has a giant sized quarterback, both in terms of stature and in talent, in the likes of 6-foot-6 220 pound sophomore quarterback Trevor Lawrence. He loves to throw that ball, and will likely be aiming at his favorite target, 6-foot-4 215 pound senior wide receiver Tee Higgins. To balance out the offense, look for Clemson to try keeping LSU off balance by handing the ball off to 5-foot-10 210 pound junior running back Travis Etienne.

What to watch for when number 1 ranked LSU has the ball:
The LSU Fighting Tigers have a pretty good quarterback of their own, 6-foot-4 216 pound senior quarterback Joe Burrow. His is the consensus top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft for good reason. LSU also runs a somewhat balanced offense. Look for 5-foot-8 209 pound junior running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire to get plenty of touches. But when LSU needs a big play, look for 6-foot-1 200 pound sophomore wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase to be on the receiving end of a Borrow Bomb.
