CINCINNATI – Joe Burrow did it again.
The LSU senior quarterback capped one of the best seasons in the sport’s history with another stellar performance in the Tigers’ 42-25 victory over Clemson in the College Football Playoff’s title game.
The Heisman winner completed 31-of-49 passes for 463 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in leading LSU to its first national championship since 2007.
Naturally, NFL stars and others on Twitter had plenty to say about Burrow, who strengthened his case to be the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft.
