NASHVILLE – Joe Burrow and the fourth-ranked LSU Football team continued to set records and put up video-game numbers, as the Tigers defeated Vanderbilt, 66-38, on Saturday afternoon.
LSU (4-0, 1-0 SEC) scored its most points against a conference opponent in regulation in school history, as Burrow and wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase torched Vanderbilt (0-3, 0-2 SEC).
Burrow completed 25-of-34 yards for 398 yards with a school-record six touchdowns. Chase became the third LSU receiver to score at least four touchdowns in a game while posting 229 receiving yards – fourth-most in LSU history.
Chase caught a game-high 10 passes, while Terrace Marshall Jr. added four catches for 75 yards and Racey McMath had five catches for 48 yards and a touchdown.
LSU’s Micah Baskerville was the star of special teams, coming up with a 46-yard return of an onside kick to the Vanderbilt 1-yard line and blocking a punt and recovering the ball in the end zone for a touchdown.
After an open date on Sept. 28, the Tigers return for consecutive home games on Oct. 5 and 12 against Utah State and Florida.
