Clemson wins college football title

Clemson Tigers quarterback Trevor Lawrence led his team to victory against the No. 1-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide on Monday, becoming the first true freshman to win the national title in 33 years. The 19-year-old passed for 347 yards and three touchdowns in the stunning upset.

While football fans can't stop talking about his historic performance, Twitter users have been trying to figure out exactly who Lawrence — and his majestic hair — remind them of. A classic rock legend or Prince Charming from "Shrek?" Here are some of the things people have compared Lawrence to since the national championship game.
