Louisville QB Lamar Jackson reaches 50 rushing, 50 passing TDs

Louisville QB Lamar Jackson reaches 50 rushing, 50 passing TDs

Jackson, who is expected to decide whether to enter the National Football League draft soon, was sacked six times in the second half alone by the Mississippi State defense.

And then there was this spectacular rushing touchdown to tie the game at 14 less than five minutes into the second quarter. It's the first game of the post-Dan Mullen era, with the Bulldogs taking on a former Heisman Trophy victor in Louisville QB Lamar Jackson. Before halftime, he also broke his own school record from 2016 with 5,139 yards total offense this season, according to ESPN Stats & Info. Tebow finished his career with 88 pasing and 57 rushing tochdowns, while Kaepernick totaled 82 passing and 59 rushing touchdowns.

The TaxSlayer Bowl featured two quarterbacks on opposite ends of the spectrum. Three of those INTs were by Mark McLaurin.

Louisville answered with a 13-play, 61-yard drive that stalled in the red zone.

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs were forced to play the bowl game without starting QB Nick Fitzgerald, who's recovering from an ankle injury.

Louisville appeared to be driving down the field for a game-winning score until Jackson threw his fourth interception of the day, giving Mississippi State the ball back with just 2:31 left.

As a junior, he recorded 3,489 yards, 25 touchdowns and six interceptions on 241-of-399 passing, as well as 1,443 yards and 17 scores on 208 rushing attempts, finishing third in the Heisman vote.
