The reigning Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl MVP, Louisville QB Lamar Jackson, has been catching the eyes of fans across the nation this season. If you watched last year’s game this should come as no surprise to you. The true freshmen broke our individual game records for most yards rushing (226 - formerly held by Marion Barber III) and most total yards of offense (453). He also tied the record for most rushing touchdowns in a game leading his team to their first win against Texas A&M in school history.
But how do Jackson’s numbers compare to last year? His Bowl performance was one of his best games to date. Since then, Lamar Jackson has been on a tear, almost outplaying his 2015 stats across the board-and the season is only half over! He started the 2016 season with a bang: in his first game of his sophomore year, Jackson set a school record for total touchdowns with 8, all of them in the first half.
Although, the Heisman Trophy race can change in a week, Jackson has continued to prove himself as a strong contender. The current Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl MVP made a name for himself during the Bowl game last year, and he continues to stun the country with his speed, open-field running, strong arm and quick release. He is a quarterback you won’t want to miss this second half of the season.
