LSU students will not have to attend class on Monday or Tuesday, the school announced on Friday. The university has cancelled classes around the National Championship game between Clemson and LSU, which is being played right down the road in New Orleans at Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The Board of Supervisors approved the move in a meeting after plenty of people begging the school to call off class.
The pair of programs face off at 7 p.m. CT on Monday night as LSU looks to win its first National Championship since 2008 while Clemson rides a 29-game winning streak into the game, having won last year’s National Championship over Alabama.
LSU head coach Ed Orgeron, a Louisiana native, brings his program into the game riding a high wave of confidence. While LSU is favored by almost a touchdown, he knows Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and the rest of the team will have to bring their best to beat Clemson, but it helps that the game is in the team’s home state.
