Louisville football: Bobby Petrino compliments Lamar Jackson’s game management

Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson didn’t post his usual mind-boggling statistics in the Cardinals’ 31-28 win over Florida State in Week 8, but Louisville coach Bobby Petrino still called his quarterback’s performance “unbelievable.”

In his press conference Monday, Petrino said Jackson managed the game well against a talented Florida State defense. Jackson threw for a season-low 156 yards, but he didn’t throw an interception. Jackson also rushed for 178 yards and a score.

According to Jeff Greer of the Louisville Courier-Journal, Petrino said Jackson’s checks and calls at the line of scrimmage were excellent.

Greer said he agreed, writing: “I think Petrino’s right. Underrated and solid performance from the Heisman Trophy winner.”
