University of Louisville freshman quarterback Lamar Jackson is ACC Rookie of the Week again.
The U of L signal caller started for the third time this season and led the Cardinals to a 20-13 victory over North Carolina State in Raleigh, N.C., on Saturday and gave the Cardinals' a two-game winning streak heading into an open week.
Jackson recorded his third 100-yard rushing game of the season, rushing for 121 yards and one touchdown, while throwing for 103 yards and one score, and now holds three of the top five all-time single-game rushing performances by a U of L quarterback.
Jackson, who had a 68-yard touchdown run and completed a 20-yard TD pass to DeVante Peete, leads the nation in rushing for all freshmen - regardless of position - according to CFBStats.com.
Just five games into his career, Jackson has a single-season record for U of L QBs with 435 yards rushing. He also ranks fifth already on the school's all-time rushing for quarterbacks. Stefan Lefors holds the career mark at 756 yards.
Jackson is averaging 6.6 yards a carry and is No. 43 nationally in rushing yards - any position.
The Cardinals are off this week before traveling to Tallahassee, Fla., to take on Florida State on Oct. 17. Kickoff is slated for noon.
