Jackson's 50th career rushing touchdown came in the second quarter of Louisville's matchup against No. 23 Mississippi State in the Taxslayer Bowl. It definitely was Keytaon Thompson's coming-out party. Jackson later raced 75-yards to set up a Cardinals' touchdown to take a 21-17 lead into the locker room.

It likely was Lamar Jackson's farewell performance.

"He was phenomenal", Bulldogs interim coach Greg Knox said.

Louisville quarterback and former Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson is likely to declare for the 2018 NFL Draft.

POINT MAN: Thompson carried 27 times for 147 yards and three touchdowns and also completed 11 of 20 passes for 127 yards and one interception.
