Joe Burrow continues to make LSU — and Southeastern Conference — history.

Against Texas A&M on Saturday night, Burrow broke the single-season SEC record for passing held by Kentucky's Tim Couch, who threw for 4,275 yards in 1998.

Burrow's 11-yard swing pass to Clyde Edwards-Helaire with 12:17 left in the third quarter gave the senior from Athens, Ohio, a total of 4,279 yards for his two-year career with the Tigers.
