LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 20-of-28 passes for 307 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 42-10 win over Rice. Burrow (6'4/216) set a career high for passing yards by averaging 11.0 yards per pass attempt against a porous Rice defense. The redshirt junior found Stephen Sullivan for a 38-yard touchdown in the first quarter before hitting TE Foster Moreau for a 13-yard score. Burrow needed today's big game to build some confidence after getting crushed by Alabama two weeks ago, and the Tigers will look to carry the momentum into next week's game against Texas A&M.
Texas A&M Aggies
Texas A&M sophomore QB Kellen Mond completed 19-of-28 passes for 236 yards with three touchdowns and a pick in a 38-24 victory over Ole Miss on Saturday. Mond also added a rushing score, so it was a four-touchdown day for the talented sophomore. The last two games were a bit of an adventure -- to put it nicely -- for Mond, and while this came against one of the worst defenses in football, the signal-caller was much, much improved in this one with his accuracy, pocket presence and decision-making. When Mond plays like this, the Aggies are very difficult to beat. He will face off against UAB next Saturday.
