This past Saturday night, LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, in the midst of the game of his life, had a message for Texas fans who doubted him earlier in the week. Burrow was shown on television mockingly waving at Longhorns supporters as they left the stadium.
Tuesday night, ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt asked Burrow about his decision. Burrow said that Texas fans were “talking some trash” behind his team’s bench.
Burrow’s wave came with just under two minutes left and the Tigers holding a 14-point lead. They went on to win 45-38.
“Yeah, that was just a little wave. They had been talking some trash behind us all night and I had enough of it for a little bit.”
Here’s the clip:

Texas fans haven’t been thrilled with how Burrow has acted in the wake of his team’s victory. This likely won’t help matters.
Regardless, LSU scored a huge win and put the rest of the country on notice that it may now have an offense to go with its always-loaded defense. The real test, per usual, will come against Alabama later in the season.
Texas, meanwhile, likely now has to win out (and beat Oklahoma twice) to clinch a spot in the College Football Playoff.
