LSU quarterback Joe Burrow didn’t just win the Heisman, but he set a very cool record in the process.

According to a Sunday tweet from Fox College Football, Burrow set the record for largest percentage of first place votes by getting 90.7% of them. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Damn, talk about an impressive season. Burrow didn’t just win the Heisman Trophy. He crushed absolutely everybody in the process.

Look, I’ve already said he earned the award, but how the hell was the gap so big? Justin Fields also had a dominant season, and nobody seemed to even consider him better than Burrow.

It really does seem like this past season from Burrow will likely go down as one of the greatest ever, and it’s not hard to see why.

He took LSU to an undefeated SEC championship, and he’ll really cement himself into legendary status if the Tigers win the national title.

Judging from how he’s playing, I wouldn’t want to face that offense.

Despite the fact that I hate the SEC, it’s been a ton of fun watching Burrow tear it up and win the Heisman.

He’s a good dude, and he’s an incredible football player. I can’t wait to see what he does in the playoff and in the NFL.
