LSU Manhandles Ole Miss, 45-16

(AP) Joe Burrow passed for 292 yards and three touchdowns, rushed for 96 yards and another score in the LSU rout.

Burrow had his best game by far for LSU (5-0, 2-0 SEC) since arriving this year as a graduate transfer from Ohio State, completing 18 of 25 passes to nine different receivers. His 388 yards of total offense were fourth-most in a single game in LSU history.

Two of his touchdown passes went to Justin Jefferson, the first for 65 yards on a crossing route.

Freshman Ja'Marr Chase scored LSU's first touchdown with a difficult leaping grab of a 21-yard timing pass along the sideline.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Nick Brossette each had short TDs rushing and LSU finished with 281 yards on the ground for 573 yards of total offense.

LSU dominated much of the game, but two turnovers let the Rebels (3-2, 0-2) hang around until late in the third quarter.
