Louisville star quarterback Lamar Jackson is off to a historic start this season.
For his impressive Week 2 performance against the Syracuse Orange, the sophomore signal-caller has earned Davey O’Brien Quarterback of the Week honors.
Jackson led the way in Louisville’s 62-28 Week 2 win with the remarkable stat line of 411 yards passing, 199 yards rushing and five total touchdowns with just one interception. Jackson was just one rushing yard short of becoming the first player in Division I history to throw for 400+ yards and rush for 200+ yards in a single game.
During the performance, he set a school record for most yards of total offense in a game, school record for career rushing touchdowns by a quarterback and even set an ACC record for most yards of total offense (610 yards).
Last week, Jackson was honored as one of the “Great 8,” while Florida State’s Deondre Francois took home the honors.
This week’s “Great 8” included Austin Allen (Arkansas), Jake Browning (Washington), Joshua Dobbs (Tennessee), Quinton Flowers (USF), Skyler Howard (West Virginia), Patrick Mahomes (Texas Tech) and Cooper Rush (Central Michigan).
Jackson is the only quarterback to be listed in the “Great 8” both weeks this season.
The two 2016 Davey O’Brien Quarterback of the Week Award winners will meet at noon ET on Saturday with live coverage on ABC.
