After losing out on the starting quarterback job at Ohio State, Burrow took his talents to Baton Rouge. He and the Tigers struggled to find success in 2018, but exploded onto the scene in 2019.
Burrow capped off the best season in college football history for a quarterback. He set the college football record for touchdown passes in a season and passed the 5,500 passing yard mark with his performance on Monday.
He threw for 463 yards and five touchdowns against one of the best defenses in the country in the team’s win.
Now he walks away as a champion. Congratulations to Burrow and the Tigers.
