Lamar Jackson Struggles as Mississippi St. Beats Louisville in TaxSlayer Bowl

  • Lamar Jackson Struggles as Mississippi St. Beats Louisville in TaxSlayer Bowl

It likely was Lamar Jackson's farewell performance.

Like Thompson, incoming UF freshman Emory Jones is one of the nation's top-rated dual-threat quarterbacks coming out of high school and plans to enroll early. "You saw it early in the TCU game, a lot of trick plays early", Knox said in a press conference Friday morning.

"We shared some words", Thompson said. The onus for the result was entirely on Jackson, as Mississippi State deserves a ton of credit for its play on both sides of the ball without coach Dan Mullen on the sideline or starting quarterback Nick Fitzgerald on the field because of an ankle injury.

The Bulldogs weren't able to run out the clock and Louisville got the ball back with 1:39 left.

"We didn't care if he was a freshman. It was a chance for everyone to just breathe a sigh of relief and say, 'Thank you God for this win"'.

Most hope forking over a lot of cash now will save them money later. Auburn's 2018 county tax bill is a 1.36-percent increase from 2017.

Jackson finished the game, and perhaps his college career, with 329 yards of offense (171 passing and 158 rushing), three total touchdowns and four interceptions. Jackson has yet to declare for the National Football League draft, but most outsiders believe the dynamic junior will turn pro. "Scheme-wise, it's kind of up in the air because they are under two different playcallers", Louisville coach Bobby Petrino said.

If he is leaving, he went out setting records.

During Saturday's Championship Drive broadcast, Corso called Jackson "the most complete quarterback ever to play the game" statistically and said he should "try to win the Heisman a second time", adding, "if he comes back, he'll win the Heisman next year".

On the surface, the touchdown was great for the Cardinals. He ended the day with 274 of his teams 404 yards, including 147 rushing on 27 carries. Louisville WR Jaylen Smith had seven catches for 107 receiving yards.

But his interceptions overshadowed his improvisations. Louisville answered with a nine-play, 51-yard touchdown drive, which was punctuated by a 5-yard touchdown pass from Jackson to Charles Standberry. Only three players in FBS history have accumulated 50 touchdown passes and 50 rushing touchdowns in their career: Jackson, Tim Tebow and Colin Kaepernick.
