On Saturday afternoon, the LSU Tigers traveled to Starkville to take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs in an SEC showdown.

No. 2 LSU is one of the surprise teams of the season. The Tigers, led by quarterback Joe Burrow, have undergone a complete transformation on offense and sit second in the nation in points per game.

After years of struggling passing games, the Tigers finally have a quarterback they can lean on.

During the game on Saturday, Burrow set a school record with his 29th passing touchdown of the year - in under seven games.

Despite setting a school record and adding to his Heisman campaign, no one was talking about Burrow's performance.

Why? Well, as Burrow attempted to evade the rush, a Mississippi State defender grabbed Burrow's pants and pulled them down - exposing his butt.

The star quarterback can set college football on fire for the rest of the season, but all anyone will be talking about is this unfortunate play.

In an era of viral contest, Burrow is the star of the day.

As for the action on the field, LSU dominated yet again and will move to 7-0 on the season. Next up for the Tigers is a huge home game against Auburn before a showdown with Alabama.
