As it turns out, the Tigers quarterback had a little extra motivation before the game.In an appearance on Marty & McGee, Burrow revealed that he saw Texas shoot his jersey with Smokey the Cannon during College GameDay. He told the inquisitive hosts that he wasn’t “ticked off” but did find it “super weird.”Burrow confessed that after seeing that, he wanted to throw for 400 yards against the Longhorns.Via 247Sports: “I wasn’t really ticked off. I just thought it was super weird… And I wanted to go and hang 400 on ‘em after that.”He lived up to that pledge, throwing for 471 yards and four touchdowns in a 45-38 win over the Longhorns.Don’t do weird things to Joe’s jersey… Or Do 📺 https://t.co/TFxVpzAqzV @MartySmithESPN | @ESPNMcGee pic.twitter.com/SOUY55UqRt— LSU Football (@LSUfootball) September 12, 2019Burrow went largely unnoticed on the national scene coming into the 2019 season.
