Lamar Jackson continues to be the wunderkind of the football season. He has now reached another milestone during today’s game against Boston College in Chestnut Hill.
After starting the game with a 69-yard touchdown run just minutes into the game, Jackson topped another school record as he became the first quarterback in Louisville history to rush for 1,000 yards in a single season.
Lamar Jackson has willed a Louisville team into the top 10 and a mostly dominant season. The Cardinals currently sit at 7-1 and are one of the favorite 1-loss teams with a chance to get a bid for the College Football Playoff. Jackson has separated himself from the field in this years Heisman trophy race and will be the favorite come the ceremony.
There has been such a gulf, in fact, that it is difficult to say who else will join him on the ballot.
Louisville is up early on Boston College, 14-0. Jackson has already passed for a touchdown and rushed for another, he has 92 yards on the ground in the first quarter. Boston College appears to be totally overmatched in this game and Louisville could run away with it early.
