ESPN says Lamar Jackson is 1 of 3 reasons to watch tonight

Lamar Jackson

Sam Khan Jr. published an article on that named three reasons why you should watch the Music City Bowl tonight. Two of those reasons were about Texas A&M, but Louisville got a little love as Lamar Jackson was a reason as well. Here is what Khan Jr. had to say…

2. Lamar Jackson: When Jackson tucks the ball and runs, look out. The 6-3, 196-pound Louisville freshman quarterback is electrifying when running the ball. He has four games this season in which he ran for 100 yards and threw for 100 yards, tied with Clemson’s Deshaun Watson and SMU’s Matt Davis for the most such games in the FBS. Two of those games came against SEC competition: He threw for 100 and ran for 106 against Auburn in September, and threw for 130 and ran for a season-high 186 yards to lead Louisville to a comeback win over Kentucky after the Cardinals fell behind by 21 points. His 734 rushing yards leads the team despite not playing on a full-time basis — he appeared in 11 games and started just six of them. He finished second in ACC Offensive Rookie of the Year voting and looks like a star in the making.

By the end of the game, Lamar will be the reason that college football fans around the country are tuning in tonight.
