LSU picked up its 10th win of the year Saturday night as the No. 1 Tigers defeated Ole Miss 58-37.

Joe Burrow finished with a career-high 489 yards and five touchdowns as he helped guide LSU’s offense to 714 total yards, the most the Tigers put up since a matchup against Rice in 1977.  

With his total against the Rebels, Burrow broke Rohan Davey’s single-season record of 3,347 passing yards.

Burrow also moved into second place, past JaMarcus Russell, on LSU’s all-time list of career touchdown passes with 55.

Burrow also helped receiver Ja’Marr Chase break an LSU record Saturday night. 

Chase caught 8 passes for 227 yards three touchdowns. Chase now has 13 touchdown receptions on the season, the most in school history. Chase’s total passed Dwayne Bowe’s 2006 single season record 12. 

Chase also became the first LSU receiver to tally over 1,000 yards receiving in a single season since 2013 when Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. both accomplished the feat.

Justin Jefferson also reached a 1,000 yards this season with nine catches for 112 yards and two touchdowns. 

Clyde Edwards-Helaire continued his string of impressive games as he rushed for 172 yards and a touchdown. 

LSU returns to Baton Rouge next weekend to host the Arkansas Razorbacks.
