LSU senior linebacker Michael Divinity says he’s blessed to return for the biggest game of his career and in his hometown.
Personal problems caused Divinity to miss the majority of one of the most extraordinary football seasons in LSU history.
The team’s 2018 co-leader in sacks even briefly quit the team.
But he decided to come back knowing his remaining punishment would prevent him from playing college football again unless LSU advanced to Monday night’s national championship.
Divinity had three sacks in the five games he played. Now he’s back for No. 1 LSU’s title tilt with No. 3 Clemson.
