Kirby Smart on SECCG LSU will be the'ultimate test Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Heading into Saturday night's big game, Burrow already had a sterling Heisman resume, completing almost 80 percent of his passes for 4,366 yards, 44 touchdowns and just six interceptions.

Burrow, the presumptive Heisman Trophy favorite, led the Tigers on a pair of first-quarter touchdown drives, which ended on touchdown passes of 23 yards to Ja'Marr Chase and seven yards to Terrace Marshall.

Burrow had his pass batted down at the line of scrimmage. The numbers he put up against the SEC's top defense Saturday night only strengthen his case to take home college football's most prestigious individual honor.

The 2019 SEC Championship Game between the LSU Tigers and Georgia Bulldogs is going to be fascinating from a 2020 NFL Draft perspective, just like the regular season matchup between LSU and Alabama was. But since he was not locked all season, Burrow can still do what he did at the beginning of the first quarter.

The Cincinnati Bengals now lead the chase for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 National Football League draft, and they'll no doubt be looking for a new quarterback to replace Andy Dalton.

The real debate could be whether LSU has done enough to jump Ohio State for the No. 1 seed on Sunday.
