No. 23 Mississippi State vs. Louisville in TaxSlayer Bowl

No. 23 Mississippi State vs. Louisville in TaxSlayer Bowl

Jackson, who is expected to decide whether to enter the National Football League draft soon, was sacked six times in the second half alone by the Mississippi State defense. He rushed for 147 yards and three touchdowns, while adding 127 yards through the air with an interception. He racked up 111 rushing yards in the first half. And then one of college football's best players in 2016 Heisman victor and 2017 finalist Lamar Jackson of Louisville. Jackson broke free for a 75-yard run, the longest of his career, and then found Jaylen Smith in the end zone for an 11-yard touchdown on the next play. It was Thompson's first career start since the 2016 Louisiana state championship game and yet he was in total control early, leading Mississippi State right down the field for touchdowns on the first two possessions of the game. Junior linebacker Mark McLaurin led the way with 3 interceptions.

Jackson drove Louisville into the red zone, down by a touchdown. They had an interim coaching staff and were without their star quarterback, but yet it was Mississippi State that looked like the more composed team in the bowl game.


Meanwhile, the Bulldogs were forced to play the bowl game without starting QB Nick Fitzgerald, who's recovering from an ankle injury.

Jackson, a Pompano Beach, Florida, native, has thrown for more than 3,400 yards and 25 touchdowns this season.
