University of Louisville sophomore quarterback Lamar Jackson is the finalist for two of college football's most prestigious awards.
Jackson, the favorite for the Heisman Trophy, was named a finalist for the Maxwell Award - the nation's top player - and the Davey O'Brein Award - the nation's best quarterback - on Monday afternoon.
Both awards will be announced on Dec. 8 at the ESPN College Football Awards Show in Atlanta.
Jackson has tied the ACC record for most touchdowns responsible in a season with 47. He has passes for 3,109 yards and 28 touchdowns, while rushing for 1,367 yards and 19 TDs.
He needs 63 yards rushing to break the school's all-time single-season rushing record.
Last week, Jackson was listed at 1-50 odds to win the Heisman Trophy. But now the odds for that award have been taken off the board in Las Vegas and the reason according to a release from Bovada was because the odds are "astronomical in favor of Lamar Jackson."
