We are guaranteed to have Lamar for two more games, that is it. While the future is still unknown, we need to soak in the magic of Lamar Jackson as much as we can. ACC Digital Network put together a great highlight reel from this season.
Lamar is continuing to get the respect he deserves. He has now moved into third according to Sportscenter while Saquon Barkley has moved into fourth. While we all know that Jackson is everything the Heisman represents and that he should be the favorite, we are happy to see the jump.
Lamar has posted better numbers this year than he did last year, when he actually won the Heisman Trophy and is the youngest player ever to do so. Yet this year, he is fourth in voting with his only hope of winning being some type sort of miracle. David Hale with ESPN dives into the mystery a little deeper.
Lamar Jackson is the best player in college football. Hands down. He leads the country in offense, and as UofL Football’s twitter points out, it is not even close. #LamarForHeisman
He’s backkkkkk. After somehow falling from the rankings for a few weeks, Lamar Jackson has made his rightful return to the Heisman rankings. With just a few more weeks left to play, it will be interesting to see where the reigning Heisman winner lands.

Luke Easterling with Draft Wire compares Lamar Jackson to Wyoming’s Josh Allen. Really, he just mentions both of their names in the same article, because there is not much to compare.

Lamar Jackson is making his way back to the top of the Heisman odds. He started this season at 8-1 and of the favorites he is currently at 25-1. Lamar would only be the second player in the Heisman history to win he prestigious award twice. Check out the full standings below.
No, you didn’t miss the ceremony. No, the award hasn’t been announced. And no, Lamar Jackson isn’t even mentioned in some “expert’s” lists for Heisman. This article isn’t predicting the future, its purpose is to educate those who say Lamar is having a “down year” and shouldn’t be a Heisman candidate.
Make no mistake, the Louisville football team hasn’t lived up to expectations thus far in the season. Sitting at 5-3 (2-3 ACC) with a home loss to Boston College isn’t at all where I envisioned this talented, but young team to be after 8 games. The team’s record is likely a very big reason why Lamar isn’t receiving the hype around his performance this season. Heisman voters heavily weigh the team’s overall success when considering who they will vote for, and I understand that. But, that isn’t the only metric used and it definitely shouldn’t factor as much into the equation as it does.
