Up 21-17 at the half despite being out-gained 244-223 and converting on just two of seven third downs, Louisville added to its lead with a 23-yard field goal by Blanton Creque with 3:14 left in the third quarter. On the flip side, Sweat and Simmons would love nothing more than to make a Cardinal other than Jackson beat the Bulldogs' defense.
Jackson completed 13 of 31 passes for 171 yards, with two touchdowns, four picks and six sacks.
Jackson ran 24 times for 158 yards and a touchdown, breaking the TaxSlayer Bowl record for most rushing yards by a quarterback.
The holiday season bowls just keep on coming, don't they? Jackson became the third player in Football Bowl Subdivision history with at least 50 touchdown passes and 50 touchdown runs, joining Florida's Tim Tebow and Nevada's Colin Kaepernick. Louisville answered with a nine-play, 51-yard touchdown drive, which was punctuated by a 5-yard touchdown pass from Jackson to Charles Standberry.
James Harrison Signs With The New England Patriots Both the Steelers and Patriots have earned a playoff berth and a bye-week in the upcoming National Football League playoffs. He did not become a full-time starter until he was 29, but he recorded 54 sacks in his first five seasons in the role.
He also broke his record for rushing yards and yards from scrimmage in a season. He is the first true freshman quarterback to start a bowl game for the Bulldogs since Wesley Carroll in the 2007 Liberty Bowl. It's been the story of the year for Louisville.
They enter this game ranked 23rd in the country in rushing, averaging 249.9 yards per game. The A-Train averages 4.6 yards per carry and has rushed for five scores this season.
That set off a wild and tearful celebration for Mississippi State, which stuck together despite losing coach Dan Mullen and a number of assistants to Florida. Quarterback Keytaon Thompson should be adequately prepared to run the offense, and with Montez Sweat and Jeffery Simmons manning the defense, Louisville will face a formidable opponent. In what's likely to be his last collegiate game, Jackson should again impress with a dazzling performance. He also has a rushing score, so that playing experience could be beneficial, especially considering the Cardinals open next season against perennial power Alabama in nearby Orlando on September 1. The Bulldogs open next season against Stephen F. Austin on September 1.
