Joe Burrow tossed four of his school-record six touchdown passes to Ja’Marr Chase and threw for 398 yards Saturday. Burrow became both the first LSU quarterback to throw for 350 yards or more in three straight games, and his 357 yards passing by halftime also was the most in school history.
LSU (4-0) beat Vanderbilt (0-3, 0-2) for the eighth straight time and improved to 12-5 all-time in Nashville in the first game between these SEC charter members since 2010.
The new look Tigers offense scored their most points this season and most ever in regulation against an SEC opponent.
The final damage for the Tigers’ offense was 599 yards on 73 offensive plays. Vandy did manage 38 points, but the offense had 374 yards on 73 plays.
“It’s good,” HC Ed Orgeron said. “I think that there’s more to come. I really do. I think Joe is a fantastic player. He has a fantastic coach in OC Steve Ensminger. We have a great plan, and as long as we protect the quarterback we’re going to make big plays here at LSU.”
