Today’s bracket match up is a pretty ho hum affair. We’re looking at Burrow’s last two touchdowns of the Peach Bowl. Not very dramatic plays, but hey once you’re up 42-14 on a team in the national semifinal all the drama tends to cease.
No. 7: Burrow’s 2-yard sneak vs. Oklahoma
Well we said it wouldn’t be a very exciting play right? At this point, Burrow’s thrown seven first half touchdowns so to add in QB sneak and score you’re eighth touchdown sounds cruel. On the other hand, it is a national semifinal and you’re trying to get to the national championship. Sportsmanship be damned.
Also this play was set up thanks in part to Ja’Marr Chase lining up at running back and converting a fourth and two. Give him the Doak Walker Award while you’re at it.
No. 10: Marshall’s 2-yard out route vs. Oklahoma
We saw LSU run a similar play against Georgia in the SEC Championship and it ended with the same result. LSU’s got three receivers—Justin Jefferson, Thad Moss and Marshall— bunched together to Burrow’s left. Both Jefferson and Moss stay in to block springing Marshall free. Best part is three Sooner defenders focus on Jefferson and they leave Marshall all alone. Credit to Oklahoma for finally focusing on trying to stop Jefferson but that was four touchdowns too late.
What was the better Joe Burrow touchdown?
