No. 1 LSU's Burrow's 7 TD passes ties record for bowl game

The Louisiana State University Tigers had an explosive first half during the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. LSU running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire suited up and played during the first half. Oklahoma defensive back Brendan Radley-Hiles was ejected for a brutal hit on Edwards-Helaire. With Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow scrambling toward the sideline, Radley-Hiles delivered the blow to Edwards-Helaire coming out of the backfield. The officials did not throw a flag on the play, but a video review showed that Radley-Hiles leaped into a defenseless player with a shoulder to the helmet. Three plays later, Burrow threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to Justin Jefferson that extended LSU’s lead to 28-7. Burrow has thrown seven touchdown passes to tie the record for the most in any bowl game. It is the most in any College Football Playoff game. Jefferson’s four touchdown catches tied a bowl record for a full game. Burrow also has thrown two touchdown passes to Terrace Marshall Jr. and one to Thaddeus Moss. Burrow tied the bowl record set by Cooper Rush of Central Michigan, who threw seven TD passes in the 2014 Bahamas Bowl. LSU led the Oklahoma Sooners 49-14 at halftime.
