In a preview of the national title game for FOX Sports, Klatt, Urban Meyer, Matt Leinart and Bruce Feldman made their picks for the game. Meyer and Feldman both picked LSU, while Leinart picked Clemson to score the upset.
As for Klatt, he predicted that LSU would win the game by double digits.
“It is gonna be an LSU home game, and LSU are gonna win because they’ve got the better team. This is gonna be a big one: 42-31. LSU wins it. They win the national title because as Ed O says, ‘We comin’.”

The LSU-Clemson matchup will feature the No. 1 offense in the nation for LSU facing off against the No. 1 defense in the nation for Clemson.
For LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, he will be the second Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback to play in the national title game since the new format was implemented.
Oregon’s Marcus Mariota was the first, but Burrow will be aiming to win the title unlike the Ducks legend.
Who will win the national title game?
