Lamar jackson threw for three TDs and ran for another as the Red team rolled 52-7 in the Louisville Spring Football Game

Lamar jackson threw for three TDs and ran for another as the Red team rolled 52-7 in the Louisville Spring Football Game on Saturday afternoon before 14,000 fans at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

University of Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino split up the teams for the Louisville Spring Football game with starters on both teams to try and make the game more competitive.

Unfortunately, one team still had Lamar Jackson.

The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback was on the Red team and accounted for four touchdowns as the game was still a blow out with the Red team winning 52-7 before 14,00 fans at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

"I thought we divided them pretty even and I still think we did," Petrino said. "I guess there's a difference maker and that was Lamar out there. I was really excited to see some of the throws he made and some of the catches the receivers made that were with him.

"There were some perfect throws by him."

Jackson completed 19 of 32 passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns and ran for a 34-yard TD in a little more than two and a half quarters of play for the Red team.

His favorite target was redshirt freshman Dez Fitzpatrick, who caught nine passes for 176 yards and two TD. Fitzpatrick had a 19-yard TD catch in the second quarter and an 80-yard TD catch in the third quarter.

Reggie Bonnafon, who came to U of L as a quarterback and played wide receiver last season, rushed 11 times for 49 yards and one TD before turning his ankle in the second quarter. He was switched full-time to running back this spring because of injuries.

Keion Wakefield has a 57-yard TD catch and Trey Smith a 10-yard run for the Red team. Smith, who started with the White team, scored the only TD for the White team with that coming in the first quarter to make it 7-7.

The other TD was an 87-yard pick six by Jaire Alexander. Blanton Creque added a 27-yard field goal.

Safety Dee Smith led the Red team with 10.5 tackles and an interception, while Alexander had seven tackles, two tackles for a loss and a sack. Ronald Walker led the White team with eight tackles and a fumble recovery.
