The LSU QB and 2019 Heisman winner accounted for six touchdowns as No. 1 LSU beat No. 3 Clemson 42-25 in Monday night’s National Championship Game to cap an undefeated season.

Burrow threw for over 463 yards as he set the single-season FBS record for touchdown passes and narrowly missed the record for best completion percentage in a season with a 30-of-47 passing effort. Five of those completions went for TDs and he ran for another.
