As the world comes together (kinda) to celebrate Easter Sunday, Jesus’ rising from the tomb, we at And The Valley Shook move onto Day 11 of the Joe Burrow Touchdown Bracket in celebration of the rising of the greatest offense in college football history.
We head to the 2 vs 15 matchup of the Cigar Region.
No. 2: Ja’Marr Chase’s 78-yard bomb against Texas A&M
Let’s be honest, we all knew LSU was going to take a sledgehammer to the Aggies. The Tigers went right down the field on their first two possessions and forced two A&M punts.
Burrow and co. got the ball back with a little over two minutes left in the first quarter. Between the white-hot start, Burrow’s unforgettable Senior Tribute, and the news of Alabama’s elimination from College Football Playoff contention, the crowd was already in a frenzy.
Then Joe Burrow absolutely UNCORKED one.
Burrow had plenty of deep TDs on the season, but this one may have been the most precise.
No. 15: Justin Jefferson’s seven-yard quick slant against Ole Miss
After John Rhys Plumlee twice blasted through our defense like he was Sonic the Hedgehog, things started to feel a little dicey. This TD capped off a clutch drive that kept the Rebels at arms’ length. The highlight was Jefferson’s 48-yard catch and run on the play prior, but a clutch tackle by DB Jalen Julius kept Jets out the endzone. In an ironic twist of fate, Julius injured himself on the tackle and on the very next play, Jefferson scooted right by his replacement for a touchdown.
It counts all the same, but a 55-yard TD would’ve been higher than a 15 seed, so it didn’t count for nothing, Rebs!
What was the better Joe Burrow touchdown?
