In the last home game of the season, Louisville turned in its best total performance of the season. The Cards defeated the visiting Orange by a final score of 56-10.
Louisville started early, scoring within the game’s first minute on a 46-yard touchdown run by Malik Williams. The Cards never looked back and routed Syracuse behind Lamar Jackson’s 4 total touchdowns (2 passing, 2 rushing) and 381 total yards (270 passing, 111 rushing). Jawon Pass even threw a dime of a touchdown. Malik Williams had a fantastic day running the ball, finishing with 180 yards on only 9 carries for 2 touchdowns. Jaylen Smith, Reggie Bonnafon, and Dez Fitzpatrick caught the touchdown passes. Smith had 3 receptions for 95 yards with the touchdown, Seth Dawkins caught 3 passes for 60 yards, and Dez Fitzpatrick reeled in 3 catches of his own for 51 yards and his touchdown.
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
Through the first 11 weeks of the college football season, wide receivers across the country have gone above and beyond to help pack their quarterback’s stats, as well as their own. Seth Dawkins and Dez Fitzpatrick have some of the highest passer ratings when targeted thus far in the ACC. PFF helps break down the numbers.
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.

Lamar Jackson threw an insane pass to Jaylen Smith, which ended in one of the greatest catches you will see this season. It was good for #7 on the SportsCenter Top 10!

The Louisville Cardinals defeated the visiting Cavaliers of Virginia today by a final score of 38-21. After the bye week, Louisville bounced back from the loss at Wake Forest two weeks ago with a solid performance today.
Lamar Jackson did Lamar Jackson things today, accounting for 4 touchdowns (3 passing, 1 rushing) with 195 passing yards (15/26) and 147 rushing yards on 15 attempts. I hope everyone is enjoying watching this guy in a Louisville uniform because his legendary time as a Cardinal is nearing its end.
