The sophomore quarterback generated 610 yards of offense and six touchdowns in the Cardinals’ 62-28 win over Syracuse on Friday night at the Carrier Dome. The victory included an amazing touchdown run by Jackson where he hurdled a defender on a picturesque play:

“I had nothing else to do,” Jackson said of his options. “It was on an angle. I was thinking I gotta take flight and get into the end zone.”
The touchdown should come as no surprise considering Jackson has been known to show some moves:
In addition to his 610 yards on Friday, Jackson accounted for eight touchdowns in Louisville’s season opener. Put him on your Heisman list.
