We are just three weeks into the College Football season and LSU quarterback Joe Burrow has been mentioned in the Heisman Trophy conversation by many in the National media.

On Monday, head coach Ed Orgeron talked about Burrow's play early on in the season and whether or not he thinks the senior quarterback is definitely in the Heisman conversation.

"Joe is becoming an elite quarterback, Orgeron said. "I've been a part of three Heisman Trophy winners, Gino Torretta, Carson Palmer, and Matt Leinart -- and I've seen a lot of similarities or maybe some things even better that I remember those guys doing."

When asked he Joe is a serious contender for the Heisman:

"We all know the answer to that. It's yes, he is, and he's that good," Orgeron said. "You have to win the big game. I think that you have to win the big game. You have to take us to the SEC Championship and take us to the Championship. Not to say that you can't win it without it, but if you do those things, you've got a good chance of winning.

"Who says that we can do that? I don't know. But I've been a part of three National Championship teams, and that was a big part of those guys winning the Heisman, I'll guarantee you that."
