LSU quarterback Joe Burrow threw for five TD passes last night and ran for another as he accounted for all six of his teams scores as the LSU Tigers rolled to a 42-25 win over the defending champion Clemson Tigers.
And Burrow didn’t only break the Tigers two season winning streak and handed Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence his first loss ever as a college starter—he broke the NCAA FBS single-season records for touchdown passes and touchdowns responsible for last night.
Watch as his wide receiver Terrace Marshall climbs an imaginary ladder to haul in Burrow's fifth TD pass to set a the record for TD passes by a QB and TD’s responsible for and—oh yeah—clinch a very real national title for the Tigers of LSU who finished off a perfect season at 15-0.
Burrow initially tied the records of 58 touchdown passes and 63 TS’s responsible for, set by Hawaii's Colt Brennan in 2006, with a six-yard touchdown pass to Thaddeus Moss with 10 seconds left in the second quarter. He hit Moss again in the third quarter for a four-yard score to take sole possession of both marks and threw in one for good measure with the pass to Marshall.
Looks like the Cincinnatti Bengals, who have the top pick in the NFL Draft, will have a new QB come next season!
