Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino spent a few minutes reviewing the Cardinals 70-14 victory over Charlotte on Thursday night.
U of L posted 28 points on the scoreboard during each of the first two quarters to build a 56-0 halftime advantage. Sophomore quarterback Lamar Jackson played in just the first half, but still had enough time to set a new school record for touchdowns in a game with eight. Jackson tossed six touchdowns - equaling Chris Redman's mark set in 1998 - and ran for additional two scores to lead Louisville to a convincing 1-0 start.
"He did a really nice job," Petrino said of Jackson's performance. "I thought that he ran the ball early - did a great job with his legs, did a good job reading things.
"One of the things that I really liked with Lamar was his preparation for the game. You know, I really watched him in walk through today and could see him picturing the play and taking charge and going through his progressions in walk through. That type of growth and maturity is going to help him throughout the year."
Jackson, who said he may have had an eight touchdown game in high school, isn't paying attention to the individual attention.
"I don't try to dwell on anything like that, I just try to win games," he said. "Try to put my team in a good (situation)."
