Joe Burrow looked calm and collected throughout LSU's 42-28 win against the seventh-ranked Gators.

The former Ohio State quarterback continued his impressive second season as LSU's starting quarterback by throwing for 293 yards, three touchdowns, only three incompletions and no interceptions. Burrow has now thrown for 2,157 yards this season and is on track to break LSU's record for single-season passing touchdowns.

From Jordan Reid of The Draft Network:

Like a golfer, Burrow knows exactly when to bring which club out of the bag in order to reach desired destinations as accurately to the target as possible. He mixes up his speeds often depending on the structure and type of throw urgency required. Keen with exhibiting awareness of knowing when to put touch on the ball to loft it into certain areas while also having the wherewithal of adding extra ferocity behind passes to fit them through tight spaces.

LSU is demanding national attention after a 6-0 start and two big wins over top-15 opponents. Burrow's accuracy, poise under pressure and ability to extend plays has been the key to this team's offensive momentum and overall success.

With Auburn and Alabama still left on the schedule, Burrow has the opportunity to solidify his spot as one of the best quarterbacks in the country.
