Thank you for following along here on VAVEL. The recap of the game will be up shortly. This is Thomas Cluck saying so long!
63-28 LSU- Final
The top-ranked LSU Tigers thoroughly dominate the number four Oklahoma Sooners 63-28 to win the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl  in Atlanta, Georgia and advance to the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in New Orleans, Louisiana! 
63-28 LSU
Even with their backups in on offense, the Tigers are still dominating, with John Emery Jr. running it in six yards for a touchdown to incredibly pass 60 yards today for LSU!
LSU is pulling the majority of its starters on offense with the game very much in hand in the fourth quarter. Notably, starting quarterback Joe Burrow is done for the day and sophomore backup quarterback Myles Brennan, a top recruit, is in the game at quarterback. 
56-28 LSU
Oklahoma adds on another touchdown with TJ Pledger running it in one yard before a good Brkic PAT.
That's the end of the third quarter here in Atlanta, with the Tigers leading Oklahoma 56-21. Fourth quarter from Mercedes-Benz Stadium coming up next.
Injury Update- LSU
Tigers' defensive back Kary Vincent Jr. was hit and left the game into the medical tent on the sideline. 
56-21 LSU
Oklahoma is not giving up despite the seemingly insurmountable deficit as Jalen Hurts evades defenders as he seemingly always does and runs it in 12 yards for a touchdown on fourth down.
56-14 LSU
The Tigers keep laying it on Oklahoma, beginning the second half right where they left off in the first with Joe Burrow running it in three yards for a touchdown. 
Injury Update- LSU
Wide receiver Terrace Marshall has been beat up a bit today and sustained another hit on the opening drive of the third quarter. He left to the sideline and is in the medical tent.
Injury Update- LSU
Coming into halftime, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron tells ESPN's Holly Rowe that running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who has been limited with a hamstring injury, will likely not play the second half with the Tigers' big lead. Edwards-Helaire was a gametime decision. 
The second half is underway and LSU receives the ball and begins on offense!
That concludes the first half of football here in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia!


The Tigers will receive the ball first to start the next half. 

49-14 LSU
The Tigers are making this ugly, just toying with Oklahoma as Joe Burrow tosses another easy touchdown pass, two yards to Terrace Marshall Jr. 
42-14 LSU
Joe Burrow takes advantage of a busted Oklahoma coverage, tossing it easily to Thaddeus Moss for a 62-yard touchdown! 
35-14 LSU
On a crucial drive, Jalen Hurts keeps Oklahoma in contention with a two-yard rushing touchdown in the redzone. 
35-7 LSU
The Tigers are just laying it on OU now, going to Justin Jefferson deep again on a 30-yard Joe Burrow touchdown pass for Jefferson's fourth touchdown of the game!
Interception- LSU
A trick play flea flicker from Jalen Hurts is intercepted by LSU's Kary Vincent Jr., giving the Tigers the ball again!
28-7 LSU
Brilliant deep ball pass downfield by Joe Burrow, going after a mismatch at the safety replacing a starter disqualified due to targeting, hitting Justin Jefferson 42 yards for another TD! Cade York squeezes in the PAT.
Injury Update- Oklahoma
Oklahoma's best defensive player, linebacker Kenneth Murray, has returned to the game.
That's the end of the first quarter here in Atlanta, with LSU leading 21-7 over Oklahoma.

After a drop on the previous deep ball, Justin Jefferson makes up for it with a 35-yard touchdown reception off a Joe Burrow downfield pass to extend the Tigers' lead.
Injury Update- Oklahoma
Sooners defensive leader Kenneth Murray has been taken to the sidelines after an injury. Huge loss for OU if he cannot return already down another key defender in Ronnie Perkins, their sack leader, due to a drug suspension.
14-7 LSU
Burrow tosses it to Terrace Marshall Jr. for an eight-yard passing touchdown. York's PAT is good.
Injury Update- LSU
Wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. sustained an awkward hit to the head and left to the sidelines but will return to the game.
The Sooners storm back with a huge downfield pass straight to star wide receiver CeeDee Lamb before Kennedy Brooks runs it in three yards for a touchdown. Reliable kicker Gabe Brkic hits the PAT.
7-0 LSU
Perfect start for LSU, getting great field position after forcing Oklahoma to go three-and-out and taking a shanked punt less than 50 yards to the end zone off a 19-yard touchdown pass from Joe Burrow to Justin Jefferson.


Cade York's extra point is good.

And the opening kick is off and underway!

LSU Tigers: Team news
A historic season for the LSU Tigers has seen head coach Ed Orgeron's squad go undefeated, earn the number one ranking, win another SEC Championship title over Georgia, and quarterback Joe Burrow win the Heisman Trophy. The Tigers are heavy favorites over Oklahoma and are looking to take another step towards a National Championship trophy at the College Football Playoff National Championship Game just down the road in New Orleans, Louisiana. 


The Tigers' question mark coming in is the health of key running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire who sustained a non-contact hamstring injury in bowl practice last week. Edwards-Helaire is a game-time decision for LSU and has not practiced much this week so even if he is physically able to go, the running game may take a hit for the Tigers.


For LSU to win, the offense will need to do what it's done all season, hit explosive pass plays downfield to its talented group of wide receivers: Justin Jefferson, Ja'Marr Chase, Terrace Marshall, and tight end Thadius Moss. LSU's defense will need to continue its improvement throughout the season and not allow Hurts' quarterback run game to gash them like Ole Miss' John Rhys Plumlee did earlier this season, something the Tigers' defense has shown they can.

Oklahoma Sooners: Team news
Ranked number four and currently a two-touchdown underdog to the Tigers, the Sooners are feeling disrespected as the odd man out in this four-team Playoff field of three undefeated, dominant national championship contenders. Oklahoma had to fight through a dramatic second half of the season with quarterback Jalen Hurts turning the ball over more and defensive coordinator Alex Grinch's defense having to win several games for the Sooners but OU made it through the regular season with just one loss still and won another Big 12 Championship title over Baylor again. 


Head coach Lincoln Riley's squad is without two key players though to drug suspensions this postseason with defensive lineman and sack leader Ronnie Perkins and running back Rhamondre Stevenson out, hurting the Sooners' ability to get pressure on LSU quarterback Joe Burrow and run the ball on offense, both essential parts of their success this season. 


For Oklahoma, their much-improved defense will need to do something they have struggled to do this season: get turnovers. A strong defense and some big pass plays from Hurts to star wide receiver CeeDee Lamb will be how OU puts themselves in the best position to pull the upset. 

What to expect today?
The biggest and most highly-anticipated day of the college football season is here, the College Football Playoff Semifinals day. Semifinal day begins here in Atlanta, Georgia with a high-flying offensive matchup between the number four Oklahoma Sooners and the top-ranked LSU Tigers in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl with the winner advancing to the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in New Orleans, Louisiana in two weeks' time. 


The Sooners and Tigers both come into Mercedes-Benz Stadium with the top two ranked offenses in the nation and the Heisman Trophy winner in LSU quarterback Joe Burrow and runner-up in Sooners' star Jalen Hurts. Sooners' head coach Lincoln Riley has built his program around prolific offense whereas LSU's Ed Orgeron has revolutionized the Tigers this season with a high-flying offense so expect lots of fireworks in semifinal one this afternoon in Atlanta.
