Joe Burrow was buried behind JT Barrett & Dwayne Haskins at Ohio State, which is why he transferred to LSU and it’ s been the best decision for him. Like new Buckeye QB Justin Fields, Burrow is now able to showcase what he can do & is viewed as a legit NFL prospect & Heisman candidate.

LSU QB Joe Burrow beat out Ohio State QB Justin Fields, OSU DL Chase Young and Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts to win the 2019 Heisman Trophy. By a lot.

Burrow set an SEC record with 48 touchdown passes in 2019 as the Tigers won the SEC and finished the regular season at 13-0. He shattered nearly every major single-season LSU passing record on the way to one of the most prolific passing seasons in conference history.

Here are five of his best plays of the season. It’s incredibly hard to argue against Burrow getting the award for being the best player in college football.

  Want to bet on Joe Burrow for Heisman? Put down $300 to win ONE dollar The LSU QB is listed as beyond-prohibitive 1/300 favorite for this year's trophy.Monday, the four finalists for the 2019 Heisman Trophy were announced — LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields, Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts, Ohio State defensive end Chase Young.  While all four technically have a shot at claiming this year’s Heisman, it’s been a foregone conclusion since mid-November at the latest that Burrow is the overwhelming favorite and the other three are fighting for a runner-up finish.  In fact, the only drama is how close Burrow, a transfer from OSU, can come to O.J.

Joe Burrow ’ s quarterback career at LSU has not just been one of the greatest in the university’s history, it is one of the greatest careers of all time. The guys then look ahead to the weekend to make the most obvious prediction of the century - Joe Burrow will be the 2019 Heisman Winner.

Joe Burrow , whose name appeared only in the afterthought cellars of the Heisman Trophy odds lists of last summer, won a landslide Heisman Trophy on Saturday night in New York, epitomizing a Louisiana State football season dazzling enough to be dizzying. Burrow not only became the fourth straight

5. TD pass to Terrace Marshall vs. Auburn

LSU’s 23-20 win over Auburn ended up as its closest win of the year. And after Auburn had a first quarter lead Burrow led the team down the field for a touchdown drive and a lead that LSU would ultimately never relinquish.

This pinpoint throw to Marshall in the end zone came after Burrow took a big hit while scrambling out of bounds earlier in the drive. Burrow recognized that Marshall was in single coverage and the safety was bracketing the slot receiver and put the ball where only Marshall could catch it.

4. TD pass to Ja’Marr Chase vs. Florida

LSU led by seven with fewer than six minutes to go and had the ball near midfield. In nearly any other LSU season this would have been a run play on this first down. Instead, Burrow went over the top to Biletnikoff winner Ja’Marr Chase for a 54-yard TD.

Chase started in the slot and slid to the outside as he cut underneath the outside receiver on the play. Burrow then recognized that Florida was in man coverage and the two defenders got briefly tangled up with each other. That allowed Chase to get the separation he needed and no one was going to catch him before he got to the end zone.

3. Run vs. Alabama

LSU’s win over Alabama was guaranteed after this run here. Burrow kept on an option read and got a first down to clinch the Tigers’ win over the Tide.

Burrow rushed for 289 yards and three touchdowns in 2019 as he kept defenses honest with the threat of his feet. He was far more dangerous making plays and escaping or stepping up in the pocket to make a throw than he was to run for a gain but opposing teams did have to account for Burrow’s ability to score a first down. Alabama didn’t on this play. And it ended up costing the Tide the game.

2. TD pass to Justin Jefferson vs. Texas

Again, here’s another play where you could have expected LSU to run the ball if this was 2018 or 2017 or 2016 or ... you get the idea. A lot of teams would have punted the ball away in this situation with fewer than three minutes on the clock and a six-point lead.

And this play also showed us just how awesome and aggressive LSU’s offense was going to be in 2019. Burrow stepped up to avoid the pressure that came his way on this seemingly impossible 3rd and 17 and found Jefferson streaking across the middle in man coverage. The pass wasn’t the prettiest of spirals as Burrow threw the ball off-balance but it hit Jefferson in stride and he scampered toward the end zone to seal the LSU win thanks to a timely slip by a Texas defender.

This was the moment you knew that Burrow was going to win the Heisman — and that LSU was going to win the SEC — even if this 71-yard completion to Jefferson didn’t result in a touchdown.

AP Player of the Year: QB Joe Burrow, first winner from LSU

  AP Player of the Year: QB Joe Burrow, first winner from LSU LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is The Associated Press college football player of the year in a landslide vote. Burrow, who has led the top-ranked Tigers to an unbeaten season and their first College Football Playoff appearance, received 50 of 53 first-place votes from AP Top 25 poll voters and a total of 156 points. Ohio State defensive end Chase Young was second with three first-place votes and 29 points while Buckeyes quarterback Justin Fields was third with 43 points. Burrow, Young, Fields and Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts, who finished fourth with 33 points, are the finalists for the Heisman Trophy to be handed out Saturday in New York.

Joe Burrow , the Louisiana State quarterback, was barely on the Heisman radar before the season started. But his standout season — and injuries to Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa — moved Burrow to the top of the Heisman class.

In a landslide vote, Joe Burrow became the first LSU player to bring college football’ s most prestigious award back to Baton Rouge in 60 years.

Burrow did a fantastic job of escaping away from the free rusher and then doubling back against pressure fro a defensive lineman who had gotten free from his blocker. He then had the presence to look way downfield for Jefferson as he rushed to his right and fired a strike to the open receiver.

LSU scored a touchdown on the play to put Georgia away and finish the season 13-0. A day later, the Tigers moved from No. 2 to No. 1 in the College Football Playoff rankings.
