OFFENSE
Joe Burrow, QB, LSU


-In just his third career start, engineered an 11-point second half comeback for LSU in the 22-21 win over No. 7 Auburn.

-Threw a 71-yard TD pass to Derrick Dillon with 8:18 left in game to pull LSU to within 21-19 ... Drove the Tigers 52 yards on 14 plays, which included two third-down conversions and one fourth-down conversion, to setup game-winning field goal as time expired.

-Completed 15-of-34 passes for a career-best 249 yards and a TD ... Rushed for 22 yards.

-Is now 3-0 as LSU's starter as the Tigers went without a turnover for the third straight game.

SPECIAL TEAMS
Cole Tracy, PK, LSU


-Kicked game-winning 42-yard field goal as time expired to lead LSU to a 22-21 comeback win over No. 7 Auburn.

-The 42-yarder was his third field goal of the game and capped an 11-point comeback for LSU ... Made field goals of 33 yards (2nd quarter) and 27-yards (3rd quarter).

-His third quarter field goal made it a one score game at 21-13.

-Is believed to be the first kicker to have a "walk-off" field goal to win a game in regulation for LSU since Oct. 25, 1941 vs. Florida.

No offense, but how did Burrow earn that honor? He was mediocre at best in the game. Was the SEC play across the conference that mediocre last week? Tracy and Delpit are more deserving to me.

Burrow made clutch throws in clutch situations with the game on the line. That’s far from mediocre...he did miss on some throws, but made the ones he needed to with the game on the line.

1) Tracy is special teams, and Delpit is defense. 2) while his completion percentage is mediocre, 250 yards, a touchdown, 22 rushing yards, and super clutch throws for first downs against an elite SEC defense in your third start to win the game AT Jordan-Hare is nothing to scoff at.

Props to the SEC for going with Joe Burrow. He deserves it, despite not having the "typical" stats you usually see with a POTW QB.

Surprised that Delpit didn't get any recognition...he had a monster game.
