College football: Lamar Jackson leaps high to hurdle defender on TD run
Little has stopped Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson early on in 2016. And what has gotten in his way, Jackson's been able to hurdle it with ease.
Jackson capped off his second impressive first half in as many games Friday night against Syracuse by literally hurdling an incoming Orange defender before waltzing into the end zone for his fifth touchdown of the game. It was his fourth rushing touchdown of the game to go along with 344 passing yards.
After accounting for eight touchdowns in the Cardinals' season-opening blowout win over Charlotte — when Jackson only played one half — the sophomore now has 13 touchdowns in three quarters. Talk about a good start to the season.
