Despite Louisville’s struggles, Lamar Jackson is still playing elite football. So during rivalry week, against Kentucky, the defending Heisman trophy winner wasn’t going to deal with any nonsense.
After fighting to the one-yard line, Jackson didn’t appreciate a bump from a Kentucky player, so he proceeded to shove him. Jackson received a shove in response and it was all over from there, with both teams brawling around the end zone.
No one was ejected and it was deemed offsetting penalties by referees.
Jackson has thrown for more than 3,000 yards, rushed for more than 1,200 yards and thrown for fewer interceptions (6) than he did during last year’s Heisman campaign (9).
