The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

BURROW, MAHOMES TOP QBs

LSU QB Joe Burrow has passed for 17 TDs through 4 games. That already equals or surpasses LSU’s year-long total in each of the past 5 seasons … On the NFL front, Kansas City QB Patrick Mahomes’ performance last week against Baltimore was his 13th career 300-yard passing game, breaking a tie with Kurt Warner for the most in NFL history by a player in his first 20 games. They are without equal this far this season.

On Today’s Scorecard

UCLA came back from a 49-17 third-quarter deficit to beat Washington State, 67-63, in one of the wildest games ever played. Cougar QB Anthony Gordon threw 9 TDs and lost. UCLA came in averaging 14 points per game, then scored 50 points … in the second half. Wondering what the Mad Scientist in conjuring up in the lab this week.

Grinding Out The Profits

Alabama has been ranked for 200 consecutive weeks, the fourth-longest streak since the AP poll started in 1936. And speaking of streaks, according to The Athletic, before Michigan’s TD late in the third quarter, Wisconsin hadn’t surrendered a point since the first quarter of the 2018 Pinstripe Bowl, a streak of 209 game minutes and 22 seconds. OMG.
