Don’t let the craziness of Saturday mask how impressive and gritty LSU quarterback Joe Burrow was in College Station.

Never have I seen an LSU quarterback take matters into his own hands and (almost) single-handedly win a football game. If there’s one player that deserved to win that game … it was Joey B.

Burrow went 25-38, for 270 yards passing and 3 TDs. He also led the team in rushing with 29 carries, 100 yards and 3 TDs.


For the longest of times, LSU has been in search of a quarterback who can win you a game and on Saturday they may have found that guy.

Joe Burrow defines grit.
