Joe Burrow

What an incredible journey for Joe Burrow. To go from an afterthought at Ohio State, to an average SEC QB at LSU his junior year, finally ending up as a Heisman winner and national champion is truly remarkable. Here are Burrow’s stats during his junior year: 13 games, 2894 yards, 16 TDs, and 6 interceptions. Those stats are fine, especially in the SEC. Here are Burrow’s stats from this past year: 15 games, 5671 yards, 60 TDs, and 6 interceptions.
