Ouch. And our running back injured his hamstring today in practice, no word on the severity.

Clemson had me worried...that was a great game...."nail biter".

With the way LSU is playing and having "Home Field Advantage", Clemson has an almost impossible task ahead. I hope their defense shows up on point.

I'm a Clemson alumni and my daughter went there as well......but I have enough common sense to see what they are up against.

LSU seems unstoppable right now. Surprised they opened as only 3.5 pt. favorite (since moved to 5.5). I guess Clemson is finally getting some measure of respect Dabo complained about this season after beating Ohio State.

Let's face it.....Clemson will always be measured by the conference they play in. Just a fact of life. You can't compare it with the others and the talent they have.

It may take a while but the ACC will rise again.

Predictions for Monday night? Hard to pick against either team. LSU looks awesome and playing in Sugar Bowl. Clemson very solid all around and has valuable playoff experience. I’m guessing LSU 34-31 in a closer game than many expect.

Ken, are you going to the game?

No, I'm too cheap! Worst seats in the Dome are going for $1,000+ and the better seats are more than $5k. I'll save that money and watch it on TV.

Would love to see Clemson win, but unless they bring their "A" game in every aspect....I don't see them beating LSU. Even then....it's going to be close.

Defense will play a huge role, and I think it will be a lower scoring game than we are typically used to seeing.

I always go for the better seats or don’t go. Paying $5K+ for seats is unfathomable to me (not that $1K+ is reasonable). I guess it gives boosters a chance to make their money back. It should be a pretty unbelievable experience for those lucky enough to be there.

I went to the BCS championship games in 2003 and 2007 and it was great fun... Just can't do this one.

Just checked Stubhub again and prices have come down a bit, particularly the lower levels. These were going for $5k+ and you can now get them for the bargain price of $1,900ish... Still too steep for me.

Out of curiosity, I checked StubHub for SuperBowl tix in Miami. $5K buys upper deck corner seats. Sidelines lower section start around $10K. Club seats on 50 $17.5K+.

(Now I’ll be getting emails from StubHub for the next few weeks...)

LSU reminds me of the New England Patriots with an accurate clutch passer and play-action setting up the run. I expect them to win and beat the spread.

Turn-overs will be the key to tonight's game. If managed, LSU wins by 6.
