Burrow is the runaway favorite to win the Heisman Trophy after a record-shattering regular season. Saturday's dominant performance was the final game before the winner's announcement this Saturday.
The 37-10 trouncing of the Georgia Bulldogs featured even more incredible play from Burrow and seemingly locked him in as the frontrunner for the award.
Ballots for the award are due at 4 p.m. Monday with an announcement of the finalists following on ESPN.
