It's hard to find a player that has shown more improvement this season than Joe Burrow. The LSU quarterback continues to put on an offensive clinic this fall.

LSU was fortunate enough to add Burrow to its roster last season. In 13 starts he threw for 2,894 yards and 16 touchdowns.

The Tigers went out of their way to hire Joe Brady as their passing game coordinator. He previously spent time as an offensive assistant for the New Orleans Saints.

Clearly, Brady's new offensive scheme has helped take Burrow to the next level. Coming into Week 4 of the season, the senior quarterback had 1,122 passing yards and 11 touchdowns.

Burrow's heroics led LSU to a road victory over Texas two weeks ago, and yet he's actually performing even better this afternoon against Vanderbilt.

Heading into halftime Burrow had 375 passing yards and four touchdowns. That'd be an impressive final stat line for the LSU gunslinger.

It's fair to wonder how much Burrow has elevated his stock over the past few weeks. NFL scouts have to be impressed with how much he's developed as a passer.

Unfortunately for Vanderbilt's defense, it has to deal with Burrow for another half of football. He started off the third quarter with his fifth touchdown pass of the game.

Burrow needs one more touchdown pass to break the school record for most passing touchdowns in a single game.
