During a Saturday night game between the LSU Tigers and the Texas Longhorns, LSU proved that they are so much more than just a defensive team.

Everyone should have their eyes out for the Tigers, who put up 45 points on the road to take down a very good ninth-ranked Texas team. Quarterback Joe Burrow stole the show for LSU, putting up a whopping 471 yards and four touchdowns to take down Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger, who threw for 401 yards and four touchdowns of his own.

It took an offensive explosion to top Ehlinger on his turf, and they got it.

Ever since Joe Brady was hired to run the passing game, LSU has looked like they could deal some serious damage in the SEC, as they've put up a whopping 100 points in their first two games. The Tigers now have the potential to get revenge for the 29-0 blowout they received at the hands of the Alabama Crimson Tide last year when the two lock horns again.

Sure, LSU has to travel to Bryant-Denny Stadium on Nov. 9 to take on the powerhouse team. However, with a legitimate quarterback in Burrow, and a defense stacked with great talent, Ed Orgeron will have every chance to take down Nick Saban, and prove that LSU is a serious playoff contender.

More so than any other year, this could be the year.
