On top of all the fanfare LSU quarterback Joe Burrow has already received this college football season, the Heisman Trophy favorite is now the cover story in Sports Illustrated.

Ross Dellenger took the deep dive into what makes the senior signal-caller so special and he joined Big Board Sports on Thursday morning with an overview of his article on Burrow and how a National Championship game against his former school, Ohio State, might be received.

Entering conference championship weekend, Burrow and his LSU Tigers are sitting in second in the CFP rankings; one spot behind those Buckeyes from his home state. A win in the SEC title game over #4 Georgia might be enough to push LSU past Ohio State who will face Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship.
