LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 19-of-34 passes for 191 yards with two interceptions in a 27-19 loss to Florida on Saturday.

Burrow had his best game at LSU last week in the blowout win over Ole Miss. Unfortunately for him, the Ohio State transfer had his worst game in the loss to the Gators on Saturday. He was hurt by drops, but he also was hurt by his own poor decisions, including picks on his final two drives; one of which was returned for a score. Burrow has to be more accurate and on time with the football if LSU is going to be a playoff contender. An even tougher test comes next Saturday against Georgia.
Oct 6 - 7:29 PM

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 18-of-25 passes for 292 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 45-16 win over Ole Miss.

The Tigers put up over 500 total yards for the first time this season, and this was Burrow's best game at LSU. Burrow set new single-game career-highs in passing yards and touchdowns against Ole Miss. In addition to his great passing game, Burrow was able to contribute an additional 96 yards and a score on his nine carries. The Tigers move to 5-0 and are a better team than preseason rankings suggested with Burrow playing well at QB. LSU will play an important road game against the Florida Gators next week.
Sep 30 - 1:19 AM

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 15-of-34 passes for 249 yards and a touchdown in a 22-21 victory over Auburn on Saturday.

Burrow was awful in the first half, and while he wasn't leaps and bounds better in the final 30 minutes, he made enough clutch plays for the Tigers to pull off the moderate upset. His touchdown pass could have been intercepted, but it went just over the hands of an Auburn defender to Derrick Dillon for 71 yards to make it 21-19. LSU's defense is going to keep the Tigers in every game, so as long as Burrow doesn't turn the ball over, they have a chance to beat everyone. He has a much easier contest coming up next Saturday against Louisiana Tech.
Sep 15 - 7:18 PM

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 10-of-20 passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score in a 31-0 win over Southeastern Louisiana on Saturday.

Burrow struggled to connect on passes in the win over Miami in their opener. Things didn't really change against Southeastern Louisiana, which is a concern. He didn't turn the ball over, but his accuracy on throws to all parts of the field has been below-average. He's going to have to be considerably better against Auburn next Saturday if LSU is going to beat the Tigers.
Sep 8 - 10:17 PM

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 11-of-24 passes for 140 yards in a 33-17 win over Miami on Sunday.

The Tigers put up 33 points against a defense that on paper ranks as one of the best in the country, but honestly, very little of it had to do with the passing game. Burrow made a couple of nice throws and showed decent arm strength, but he was inaccurate and often late on throws for the most part. This was a tough first test, but the Tigers will need Burrow to be better once conference play begins. A much easier test comes next, however, in a game against Southeastern Louisiana next Saturday.
Sep 2 - 11:36 PM

Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated reports that LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow will be named the starting quarterback for Sunday's game against Miami.

Burrow transferred to LSU from Ohio State with an eye on taking the starting job, and he's beaten out Myles Brennan to begin the year as the starting signal-caller. LSU head coach Ed Orgeron has repeatedly said he doesn't want to rotate quarterbacks during games, so as long as Burrow plays well, he's going to be the guy. A former four-star recruit, Brennan will be right on Burrow's shoulder -- assuming he doesn't join several other LSU quarterbacks who transferred out -- so Burrow will have to play well early to keep the job. Obvious point is obvious, but considering how much turmoil there's been at the position over the past few seasons, it's worth pointing out.

LSU HC Ed Orgeron said that he does not want to rotate quarterbacks during games.

Orgeron is hopeful that he'll be able to name a definitive starter from Joe Burrow, Lowell Narcisse, Myles Brennan and Justin McMillan by the start of the season. Should none emerge from this hatch, though, Coach O has no intention of muddling his offense with multiple in-game signal-callers. If we're to handicap this race, we give Burrow the inside track. That would seem to be the general consensus, as well. A wrinkle on the "just one quarterback" comments -- Narcisse could potentially see time out of the Wild Cat even if he does not start.
Aug 4 - 2:29 PM

ESPN's Alex Scarborough believes LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow has the edge on the starting quarterback position.

Scarborough explained quarterbacks Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse, and Justin McMillan "had their shot to move up the leaderboard this spring and failed to do so. Then Ohio State's Burrow hit the market as a grad transfer and the Tigers scooped him up, making him the instant favorite to win the competition." LSU HC Ed Orgeron denies that Burrows was guaranteed the job when he signed, but that is likely a tactic to keep the quarterback room competitive.
Jun 13 - 2:10 PM

Former Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett said that LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow is "smart and knows where to go with the ball."

"[Burrow]'s really smart, tough, willing to do anything it takes to win and he slings the ball. He can throw the ball around the yard," Barrett said while taking part in a rookie event with the New Orleans Saints last week. The former Ohio State signal-caller is now sharing a state with Burrow, who took part in spring practice with the Buckeyes before transferring down to LSU earlier this month. Dwayne Haskins looks to have taken over the reins for Barrett in Columbus. Burrow will be competing with Myles Brennan and Lowell Narcisse for starting signal-caller rights in August camp. We've seen the now-former OSU quarterback in only limited capacity to date. During his time in the program, he completed 29-of-39 passes for 287 yards with a 2/0 TD/INT ratio while appearing in mop-up duty.
May 28 - 3:31 PM

LSU officially announced the redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow has transferred to the school from Ohio State.

Burrow made the announcement on Friday that he'd be attending LSU, but it's now official with the school welcoming him on Twitter. Burrow will be immediately eligible to play as a graduate transfer, but he'll also have two years of eligibility remaining. The 6-foot-3, 216-pound signal-caller will be given a chance to winning the starting quarterback job, but he will have to beat out Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Joe McMillan to do so.
May 21 - 2:13 PM

Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow confirmed on Twitter that he is transferring to LSU.

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Tom Groeschen was first to report Burrow's transfer intent for Death Valley on Friday, with the Ohio State signal-caller tweeting confirmation a short time later. The 6-foot-3, 216-pounder will have two years eligibility remaining with LSU and will be battling it out with Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Joe McMillan for starting honors this summer.
May 19 - 11:13 AM

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Tom Groeschen reports that Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow is transferring to LSU.

Per Groeschen, Burrow's decision came down to Cincinnati or LSU. He visited North Carolina earlier this week, but the Tar Heels apparently failed to make the cut for the ultimate decision. The 6-foot-3, 216-pounder's choice of LSU makes complete sense, as the program's spring quarterbacks competition between Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Joe McMillan saw no clear frontrunner emerge. Even with the publicity surrounding this transfer, it's important to keep in mind that we saw very, very little of Burrow at Ohio State outside of occasional mop-up duty, so it should not automatically be assumed that he'll be a lock starter with his new team. We expect a competitive camp from all involved in what figures to be a adventuresome year for the program now that Leonard Fournette and Derrius Guice are no longer on campus to carry the offensive load.
May 18 - 5:01 PM

Rivals' Sean Callahan reports that transferring Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow will visit North Carolina this week.

Burrow reportedly checked out both Cincinnati and LSU last week. North Carolina, it would appear, is going to be the final stop on the redshirt junior's visitation tour. Per Callahan, he'll likely make a decision on a future home by the end of the week. At UNC, he would be competing with Chazz Surratt and Nathan Elliott for starting rights in the upcoming campaign. If a darkhorse is to jump up late in this race for Burrow's services, Wyoming, Arkansas and Arizona State would fit the bill. At this juncture, though, we expect him to land with one of LSU, Cincinnati or North Carolina. The former four-star recruit will have two years eligibility remaining with his program-to-be.
May 15 - 11:12 AM

SEC Country's Alex Hickey reports that transferring Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow will visit LSU this coming weekend, while Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman relays that he'll be visiting Cincinnati on Thursday.

LSU and Cincinnati were both teams linked to Burrow almost immediately upon his announcing an intent to transfer on Tuesday. The Tigers went through the spring with Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Joe McMillan battling it out in competition, but all indications are that the team is not close to settling on a starting quarterback. In what will be a potential hot-seat year for HC Ed Orgeron for the upcoming season, Burrow may well represent the safest option at this juncture. He didn't see the field much while at Ohio State, but played well when given spot opportunities. As for Cincinnati, Burrow is already well-acquainted with HC Luke Fickell, who previously served as defensive coordinator at OSU. Beyond those two programs, keep an eye on Wyoming, Arkansas and Arizona State.
