Louisville QB Lamar Jackson lands this week’s SI cover

Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson is one of the most dynamic players in all of college football. Now, he’s the latest cover athlete for Sports Illustrated.

On Tuesday, Sports Illustrated unveiled its latest magazine cover which features the Cardinals signal-caller and Heisman front-runner. The honor comes after Louisville’s 63-20 drubbing over Florida State in which Jackson recorded five touchdowns.


Through three games this season, Jackson has thrown for 913 yards, rushed for 464 yards and recorded a whopping 18 total touchdowns. The Cardinals, meanwhile, have surged to the No. 3 ranking in the nation.

Jackson and company return to action this weekend on the road against Marshall. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. ET on the CBS Sports Network.
