Burrow continues record-breaking run
Louisiana State 65, Northwestern State 14
When: 7:30 PM ET, Saturday, September 14, 2019
Where: Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Head Official: Lee Hedrick
We should all take a moment what a special player is. Burrow and LSU's passing game continued rolling for the No. 4 Tigers in a 65-14 victory against visiting FCS opponent Northwestern State in Baton Rouge, La., on Saturday night. Orgeron was a four-year starter at defensive line for Northwestern State, graduating in 1983.
It was the 800th victory in LSU history.
Burrow, who passed for the second-most yards in school history (471) in a 45-38 victory at then-No. 9 Texas a week earlier, was nearly flawless against the in-state opponent Demons (0-3). He completed 21 of 24 for 373 yards and two touchdowns with one interception before leaving the game late in the third quarter. His longest pass was for 65 yards. He rushed 7 times for 35 yards.
LSU begins its Southeastern Conference games next weekend starting with Vanderbilt. Burrow is on pace to break the NCAA record — minimum 150 attempts — for completion percentage: 76.6 by Texas quarterback Colt McCoy in 2008.
Terrace Marshall Jr. caught both of Burrow's touchdown passes as he had his second multi-touchdown game and increased his season touchdown-reception total to six as LSU improved to 3-0. Justin Jefferson added 124 receiving yards on five catches.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Tyrion Davis-Price had two touchdown runs each, and Burrow and John Emery Jr. had one each.
Shelton Eppler completed 21 of 38 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns for NSU, which trailed just 24-14 at halftime.
Burrow guided the Tigers to touchdowns on their first three possessions of the third quarter, and Myles Brennan produced a touchdown drive on his first after relieving Burrow.
LSU outgained NSU 241-61 in the third quarter as they took a 51-14 lead into the fourth quarter. Freshman Trey Palmer returned a punt 54 yards for a touchdown, and Davis-Price ran 2 yards for the final score.
LSU finished with 610 yards, including 488 passing. NSU finished with 278 yards, 232 passing.
The Demons have not finished with a winning record since going 7-5 in 2008 and are struggling to turn the program around after a pair of lopsided losses to begin the 2019 campaign. "We're 0-3, so we're hearing a lot of outside noise," head coach Brad Laird told reporters.
