LSU junior wide receiver Justin Jefferson set a new College Football Playoff record by catching four touchdowns during the first half of the Peach Bowl on Saturday.

Jefferson wasted no time blowing past that record while teaming up with Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow against Oklahoma. He has also tied the record for the most touchdowns ever caught in any FBS bowl game.

Jefferson has had a big season for the Tigers and entered the Peach Bowl with 88 receptions, 1,207 yards and 14 touchdowns in 13 games. Here’s five facts to know about the star wide receiver:

1. Playing at LSU is a family tradition

Jefferson is a third-generation Tiger. His older brother Jordan played quarterback for much of a four-season stretch, from 2008–11, and his other brother Rickey was a safety in 2013–16.

2. Jefferson wasn’t a top recruit out of high school

As a member of the 2017 recruiting class, Jefferson was a three-star recruit and ranked as the No. 308 receiver in the nation. He didn’t even crack the top 50 in the state of Louisiana. His only other offers were from Tulane, Nicholls State and Northwestern.
