Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson has become known for the absurd offensive numbers he posts. For instance, through 6 games this season, Jackson is averaging 416.7 total yards per game.
That’s more than 71 FBS teams. Not quarterbacks — entire teams.
Although it’s been 8 days since Louisville last played a game, the ACC tweeted out another incredible stat to add to Jackson’s resume. In Louisville’s loss to N.C. State last on Oct. 5, Jackson became the fastest player in ACC history to accumulate 10,000 yards of total offense.

The feat took Jackson just 31 games. That mean’s he’s averaged 322.8 yards per game during the first three seasons of his college career.
If Jackson continues to produce at the rate he has so far this season for the remainder of the year, he could finish this season with over 12,000 total yards.
Even if Jackson were to stay at Louisville for his senior year, however, he likely wouldn’t come close to the NCAA record for total yards accumulated in a career. Former Houston quarterback Case Keenum has the record of 2o,114, set during his career from 2001-2011.
