Burrow Named Maxwell Award Player of the Week

BATON ROUGE – LSU’s Joe Burrow added another award to his list on Tuesday as the senior quarterback was named the Maxwell Award National Player of the Week for his play in the 45-38 win over ninth-ranked Texas on Saturday in Austin.

Burrow was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this year on Monday.

Burrow connected on 31-of-39 passes for a career-best 471 yards and four touchdowns in the win over the Longhorns. The 31 completions and his 479 yards of total offense were also career highs as the Tigers beat a Top 10 non-conference opponent in a true road game for the first time in school history.
