LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Syracuse coach Dino Babers remembers how Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson ran, threw and even leapt over the Orange last season.
Jackson's hurdle of a Syracuse defender for a touchdown was an indelible image during a 62-28 victory that paved his way toward winning the Heisman Trophy. The Orange want to prevent him from wreaking similar havoc on Saturday in another signature performance.
"He ran all over us, and he threw all over us," Babers said. "He got both parts in last year and hopefully he doesn't get both parts in this year to the degree he did last year."
Syracuse (4-6, 2-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) has several priorities when it visits Louisville (6-4, 3-4).
The Orange must win out to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2013. Limiting Jackson will be the key against Louisville, particularly after yielding 734 yards in a 64-43 home loss to Wake Forest. >> Read more
