LSU quarterback Joe Burrow (9) drops back for the pass to LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price in the second half of the Tigers' 36-13 win over the Bulldogs, Saturday, October 19, 2019, at Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville, Miss.

STARKVILLE, Miss. — Another game, another record-setting day for LSU quarterback Joe Burrow.

Burrow broke four school records and tied another in the second-ranked Tigers' 36-13 thrashing of Mississippi State in Davis Wade Stadium.

With four touchdown passes Saturday, Burrow has 29 for the season in just seven games — breaking the old mark of 28 jointly held by JaMarcus Russell (2006) and Matt Mauck (2003).

Burrow has been responsible for 31 TDs this season (29 passing, two rushing). That broke the single-season total of 29, also jointly held by Russell (2006) and Mauck (2003).

Playing in just his 20th game for LSU, the Ohio State transfer tied Rohan Davey (1998-2001) for career 300-yard games at seventh in going for 327 against State.

Burrow set the single-season record for passing yards per game (minimum seven games). With 354.9 yards so far, he smashed Davey's old mark of 278.9 yards per game (2001).

Also, needing a minimum of 20 games to qualify for the career record for passing yards per game, Burrow has averaged 268.9 yards — shattering the old record of 207.2 yards by Tommy Hodson (1986-89).
