To say LSU transfer senior quarterback Joe Burrow was flying under the radar to begin the season would be an understatement. Opening the year with +6000 odds to win his eventual 2019 Heisman Trophy, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, Burrow is now the odds-on favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Burrow has been both one of the biggest surprises and storylines of the 2019-20 college football season, and his legend only grew further in the 2019 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl College Football Playoff Semifinal game against Ohio State on Saturday night.

When the dust settled nearly a full quarter after he was pulled from LSU's 63-28 blowout win over No. 4 Oklahoma, Burrow had set or tied 14 NCAA football records and helped LSU set or tie seven more records as a team.
