LSU is having a historic season and it will come to a close when the No. 1 Tigers take on the No. 3 Clemson Tigers in the College Football Playoff National Championship in New Orleans on Monday, Jan. 13.
While this is the first national title appearance for LSU since the 2011 season, the Tigers have gone above .500 since 2000.
LSU’s last losing season was in 1999 when the Tigers went 3-8 overall (1-7 SEC) in the program’s final year under head coach Gerry DiNardo.
