  • Saturday's bowl preview capsules

Jackson's 50th career rushing touchdown came in the second quarter of Louisville's matchup against No. 23 Mississippi State in the Taxslayer Bowl.

Thompson's big day included 147 yards rushing and 11-of-20 passing for 127 yards. And then one of college football's best players in 2016 Heisman victor and 2017 finalist Lamar Jackson of Louisville. Before halftime, he also broke his own school record from 2016 with 5,139 yards total offense this season, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

When he was finished, Jackson was in the end zone for the score, and three Bulldogs defenders were laying on the ground after crashing into one another trying to bring him down.


Louisville answered with a 13-play, 61-yard drive that stalled in the red zone. The Bulldogs punched it in on the next play, taking a 31-27 lead after the extra point. They had an interim coaching staff and were without their star quarterback, but yet it was Mississippi State that looked like the more composed team in the bowl game. Only three players in FBS history have accumulated 50 touchdown passes and 50 rushing touchdowns in their career: Jackson, Tim Tebow and Colin Kaepernick.

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.
