Lamar Jackson is the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, and the Louisville quarterback has spent the first two weeks of the season adding to his already impressive football résumé.
The test this week goes up a notch, as Jackson and the No. 14 Cardinals host No. 3 Clemson. The Tigers aren’t shying away from pumping up Jackson heading into the big ACC showdown.
