LSU QB Joe Burrow with a scramble pass against Georgia.

Saturday’s SEC Championship game between the LSU Tigers and Georgia Bulldogs has turned into yet another showcase for LSU quarterback Joe Burrow.

Burrow was already receiving a lot of Heisman Trophy talk thanks to a regular season that saw him complete 314 of 401 passes (78.3 percent) for 4,366 yards with 44 touchdowns and six interceptions. However, he intensified that talk even further with a couple of remarkable highlights Saturday. That included this third-quarter play, where it looked like Burrow was about to be sacked, but instead managed to complete a pass to receiver Justin Jefferson for 71 yards:

That led to a touchdown pass to Terrace Marshall Jr., and it was just one of many impressive plays from Burrow on the day. He also got lots of yardage as a rusher, and even once as a receiver (after catching his own batted pass and taking off):

As of the end of the third quarter (where LSU led 34-3), Burrow had completed 27 of 37 passes (73.0 percent) for 347 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions. He also had added 10 carries for 46 yards and the aforementioned catch-and-run for 16 yards. But the 71-yard pass was particularly impressive, and it served to continue the Heisman hype around Burrow.
