After ending an eight-game losing streak against Alabama with a 46-41 win on Saturday, LSU had two players earn weekly honors from the Southeastern Conference on Monday.
LSU quarterback Joe Burrow and running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire were named SEC Co-Offensive Players of the Week.
In Saturday’s win over the Crimson Tide, Burrow completed 31-of-39 passes for 393 yards and 3 touchdowns while rushing for 64 yards. Burrow’s 457 yard of total offense was the third highest total in LSU history, his 31 completions is also a career-best and he became the fourth player in program history to throw for 3,000 yards in a season.
For the season, the Heisman Memorial Trophy candidate has thrown for 3,198 yards with 33 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions. Burrow has also completed 78.93 percent of his passes and has rushed for 189 yards with 3 touchdowns as well.
