National Championship 2020: It’s a clash of the Tigers in this year’s College Football Playoff championship game as No. 1 LSU faces No. 3 Clemson on Monday night in New Orleans. The 2020 College Football Playoff championship game will kick off at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, Jan. 13. Here’s everything you need to know to watch National Championship 2020 game.
Half of the conference championship game participants were decided during Saturday’s NFL playoff action. Sunday’s pair of games will send two more teams to the next round.
The San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans await the winners of Sunday’s games in the NFC and AFC, respectively, after both teams won Saturday. San Francisco beat the Minnesota Vikings at home, while Tennessee scored another upset road victory over the Baltimore Ravens. The Titans beat the reigning champion New England Patriots the week before.
The 49ers will face either the Green Bay Packers or the Seattle Seahawks for the NFC championship, while the Titans will take on either the Kansas City Chiefs or Houston Texans for the AFC title. That means both games could feature a pair of divisional rivals.
Only one contest remains in the 2019 college football season, the last game before the 2020 campaign kicks off nearly eight months from now.
No. 1 LSU takes on No. 3 Clemson in the 2020 College Football Playoff championship game.

There’s so much more to the game that will take place in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, however: The clash of head coaches Ed Orgeron and Dabo Swinney, the battle of wits between LSU’s Steve Ensminger and Joe Brady and Clemson’s Brent Venables and the prospect of a historic win for either team.
