LSU 37, Georgia 10

Joe "Superman" Burrow padded his Heisman resume even further with an extremely impressive performance leading No. 1 LSU to a spot in the College Football Playoff after routing No. 4 Georgia 37-10 in the Southeastern Conference championship game on Saturday. Burrow threw for 349 yards, four touchdowns and added another 41 yards rushing on 11 carries. The Superman highlight of the game came late in the third quarter when Burrow scrambled to get away from Travon Walker, leaving the lineman on the turf, then drilled a 71-yard pass to Justin Jefferson while sprinting away from another Georgia defender. "It was all improvised," Burrow said. "Justin ran a 6-yard hitch route and saw me scrambling and took off deep. We got a great feel for each other. I knew exactly where he was going to be when I got out of there." Georgia entered the game ranked second in points allowed and until Saturday held nearly every opponent under 20. "That is a really good football team," Georgia coach Kirby Smart said. "We were going to have to make explosive plays. We were unable to do that." LSU is going for its first national title since the 2007 season and will head to Atlanta or Phoenix for a semifinal game on Dec. 28 against OU.

Oklahoma 30, Baylor 23

The sixth-ranked Sooners are Big 12 Champions for the fifth consecutive year after another close win over No. 8 Baylor. "I hope they see the Big 12 champions. They've got a job to do, I get that," Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said after the Sooners' 30-23 overtime win on Saturday. It was the second time in four games that the Sooners have bested the Bears and third-year Baylor coach Matt Rhule says Oklahoma should be in the playoffs no matter other game results. Only three times since the founding of Baylor's football program in 1899 have the Bears won 11 games in a single season. This historic year for the Bears comes two years after Rhule's first season as head coach in which Bad Baylor lost 11 games in the wake of a sexual assault scandal that led to the firing of two-time Big 12 champion coach Art Briles. Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts was 17-of-24 passing for 278 yards and a touchdown and wide receiver CeeDee Lamb had 173 yards on eight receptions. The Bears will face Georgia in the Sugar Bowl which will likely be hosted in New Orleans. OU will face LSU in the playoffs.

Eric Gordon has lost a tremendous amount weight during the shutdown. His biggest aspiration is to stay healthy and be more fit for the shorter season. He told the media that he feels confident about this team, and is optimistic about getting his shot back consistently.

"Everybody knows we're a dangerous team. We can beat anybody, and we can beat ourselves" said Gordon. "It's all about finding that consistent path. There are only eight games and playoffs around the corner, we have to be dominant from start to finish."

Gordon is at a career low shooting 37 percent from the field this season, while playing in only 34 games. During the season he went through a couple of injuries while averaging 14.5 points per game. For Gordon to be productive he needs to remain healthy so the Rockets can be successful. If Russell Westbrook or James Harden are off to a bad start, Gordon is a great weapon to go to. Even though Gordon's stats dropped from the previous two years, there can always be a quick turnaround.

Gordon's injury caused him to miss quite a bit of time, so it was hard for him to get back in rhythm. That can always throw a great shooter like Gordon off. The quarantine allowed Gordon to get healthy and practice his shot more. Before the season started, Gordon signed a four-year, $76 million contract extension. Daryl Morey is extremely confident about having Gordon on the Rockets. Morey was seen working with Gordon after practice Tuesday.

Mike D'Antoni has loved the way Gordon has looked on the court. As D'Antoni watched the Rockets five on five practice, he's been observing Gordon very carefully.

"He hasn't missed a rep. Looks good. Shooting the ball extremely well," said D'Antoni during the Zoom press conference. "Getting Eric Gordon in the groove and getting him going is very important. And also, getting the other guys to be able to maybe even have more opportunities."

When Gordon is consistent and healthy, it is a scary sight to opposing teams.
