Lamar Jackson’s impressive season on the road to a potential Heisman has reached yet another milestone this afternoon. The Louisville Cardinals star has once again made school history in the midst of a season that has witnessed Jackson achieve benchmark after benchmark on his march to one of the best seasons for a quarterback in the history of the ACC.

With a handful of games left in the season, Jackson reached an impressive milestone early in the second half of the season with 1,000 rushing yards on the season. Jackson’s 100-plus rushing yards in the first quarter against the Boston College has put the Cardinals star all alone in school history as the only quarterback to ever eclipse 1,000 yards on the ground.

Jackson is on fire early against Boston College after a first quarter that featured over 100 yards passing and 100 yards rushing for the Heisman favorite. In addition to the yardage, Jackson threw for two touchdowns and added one more on the ground to put the Cards up 21-0 after the opening quarter in what has been another dominant performance from the quarterback.

Up three scores early with a program record now under his belt, expect Jackson to pad his stats even further this afternoon with the Cardinals rolling against a struggling Boston College program. Jackson’s race to the Heisman is a thrill to watch as the quarterback continues to make history at Louisville as the best ever passer to play for the program.
