BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Joe Burrow became the first LSU quarterback to eclipse 300 yards passing in four straight games and threw for five touchdowns to help the fifth-ranked Tigers defeat Utah State 42-6 on Saturday.
Burrow, who has finished only one fourth quarter this season because of lopsided scores, has completed 78.3 percent of his passes for 1,864 yards and 22 touchdowns through five games as he remains on pace to threaten most LSU single-season passing records.
Burrow completed 27 of 38 passes for 344 yards and was intercepted once on a tipped pass against Utah State before being replaced by Myles Brennan on LSU's second series of the fourth quarter. Burrow also rushed for 42 yards and touchdown.
College Football Playoff projection: LSU gets boost with Florida win
LSU's standing as a legitimate College Football Playoff contender was bolstered Saturday night with the Tigers' big win over Florida.
Justin Jefferson caught two scoring passes for LSU (5-0). His second TD on a 39-yard throw was the completion on which Burrow surpassed 300 yards. Burrow's other TD strikes went to Derrick Dillon, JaMarr Chase and tight end Thaddeus Moss.
LSU's defense largely bottled up an up-tempo Utah State offense that came in averaging 533 yards 38.5 points per game. The Tigers intercepted quarterback Jordan Love three times. Freshman Derek Stingley Jr. displayed veteran-like savvy when he timed a spinning leap to high-point Love's fade pass to the right pylon in front of the intended receivers. Stingley held on for his second interception this season as he crashed down on his back at the LSU 1-yard line, and LSU responded with a 99-yard touchdown drive.
Safety Grant Delpit and Kary Vincent also intercepted Love, who finished 15 of 30 for 130 yards. The Aggies (3-2) totaled 159 yards of offense.
LSU makes case as No. 1 while massive upset shakes up SEC picture
LSU makes case as No. 1 while massive upset shakes up SEC pictureWhat was supposed to be another Alabama-Georgia party in the SEC championship game in the Georgia Dome could now be a repeat of the game we saw Saturday night in Baton Rouge: Florida-LSU.
Utah State: Love and the Aggies' offense displayed the talent to execute a few explosive plays against an LSU defense missing several injured starters, including a pair of 35-yard completions to Siaosi Mariner and Jordan Nathan. Stringing enough together to stay in the game was another matter, but Utah State should expect to move the ball better against remaining competition this season.
LSU: The Tigers finished with 601 total yards and look sharp heading into the meat of their Southeastern Conference schedule — even if 42 points was their lowest in any game this season.
The LSU record for yards passing in a season is 3,347, set by Rohan Davey in 2001. Burrow trails that mark by 1,483 yards with seven regular season games left. The LSU single-season touchdowns passing record is 28, set by Matt Mauck in 2003 and tied by JaMarcus Russell in 2006. Burrow is six short of that mark.
The Tiger Stadium crowd was visibly the thinnest this season. An 11 a.m. local time kickoff meant many of those who attended the game would have little relief from the sun on an unseasonably hot day — even by south Louisiana standards. Forecasts showed temperatures rising into the low 90s by halftime. Numerous sections of the stadium were mostly empty by the middle of the third quarter after LSU led 28-6.
Apple Adds Noise-Cancelling to Beats Solo Over-Ear Headphones
Apple Inc. on Tuesday announced the Beats Solo Pro, its first update to its mid-tier over-ear headphones in three years, adding noise-cancellation to a product it inherited through the acquisition of Beats Electronics back in 2014. © Bloomberg Apple's Beats President Luke Wood and New Beats Headphones Launch Beats Solo Pro wireless headphones. Photographer: Akio Kon/BloombergThe new headphones add an aluminum frame for increased sturdiness, improved resistance to water, a new chip for quicker pairing to Apple devices, and more surface area around the speaker areas.
Fans were also slowed getting to the game because of a freight train that came to a stop on a rail line near the west edge of campus, cutting off expansive parking and tail-gating areas from the stadium less than an hour before kickoff.
The Tigers should hold relatively steady in thepoll after easily covering a nearly four-touchdown spread.
