He was named the ReliaQuest Bowl MVP, going 31-for-45 for 395 passing yards and three touchdowns. Brian Thomas Jr. caught two of those touchdowns passes and added 98 receiving yards. Malik Nabers broke the LSU record for most career receiving yards in program history with 3,003. Major Burns led the defense with 13 tackles. This was LSU’s largest bowl comeback (14 points) in program history.
