Last Saturday, Joe Burrow broke LSU's record for most touchdown passes in a single game. You'd think that he would be pleased with that performance, but he actually think it's the "worst game" he's played this season.

The days of LSU relying on its running game are over. With Joe Brady helping out the coaching staff, the offense has relied on its quarterback to lead the charge.

Through four games this season, Burrow has completed 80.6 percent of his passes for 1,520 yards and 17 touchdowns. He's already thrown more touchdown passes in one month than he did all of last season.

College football analysts have noticed Burrow's drastic improvement in his second year at LSU.

Breaking records and dropping 66 points on an SEC opponent would indicate that Burrow played well. And yet, the talented signal-caller thinks it was his worst performance of the year.

"I think that was probably the worst game I've played so far. I don't want to say bad game since I still played very well, but I played better in the first three. So, I have some things to correct just like we all do as an offense. Through my first four games I've played very well and I'm just going to try and get better every day."

Burrow said the real issue for him last Saturday was that he held the ball for too long.

Since LSU currently has its bye week, the team has time to add new wrinkles into its offensive scheme.

It's hard to envision Burrow playing even better, but it'd also be foolish to dismiss that possibility.

LSU is back in action on Oct. 5 against Utah State.
