Barring a massive surprise, LSU’s Joe Burrow is going to walk away with the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night, becoming the first Tiger to win the award in 60 years. Legendary running back Billy Cannon, who earned the honor in 1959, is LSU’s lone Heisman winner.
Burrow has spent only two seasons in Baton Rouge, but he’s already reaching legend status in Louisiana. Tonight, LSU provided him with a hype video to match his meteoric rise.
Narrated by former LSU star Tyrann Mathieu, the piece also features the rap song “Set It Off” by Baton Rouge native and LSU mega-fan Boosie.
It is guaranteed to get you fired up if you root for the Tigers.

Burrow will be one of four finalists on hand in New York City for Saturday night’s Heisman ceremony. He’ll be joined by Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields and Ohio State defensive end Chase Young.
Coverage of the Heisman Trophy presentation starts at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.
Later this month, Burrow will lead the LSU in the program’s first-ever College Football Playoff game. The Tigers will face Oklahoma in the Peach Bowl on December 28.
