Louisville vs. Virginia: Score and Twitter Reaction

Louisville vs. Virginia: Score and Twitter Reaction

Louisville was against the ropes against Virginia, then Lamar Jackson did Lamar Jackson things. But it was his 29 yard touchdown pass against airtight coverage with:13 remaining on the clock that gives you an idea of just how clutch this young man can be.

Virginia simply left too much time on the clock for Jackson & Co.to pull off a comeback win, and Jackson's two flawless passes just proved why he's the Heisman Trophy front-runner.

Jackson passed for 361 yards and four touchdowns while adding 90 yards on the ground.

"I knew we had to just get in the end zone and get this victory".

The pass was on point, but the catch by Smith was even more impressive. Today's loss dropped the Spartans to the six-loss mark, meaning they are just one loss away from being ineligible for postseason play under NCAA rules. Before his game victor, he threaded the needle to Cole Hikutini on a fourth-and-3 play.

"I was like, 'Man, I have to improve, '" Jackson said. Duke managed this by roughing Louisville's kicker on a missed 46-yard field goal while down by seven with 2:00 remaining in the game; Virginia managed it by simply giving Jackson too much time (and having a corner that's just an inch too short to cover Jaylen Smith).

Jackson and the Cardinals overcame a double-digit deficit to take a 24-17 lead, but the late score and conversion gave the underdog Wahoos a one-point advantage.

"That's a pretty big spread, one of the biggest spreads I've seen", he said.

With Louisville down a point with 1:57 to go, Jackson realized what was at stake if Louisville failed. While a sluggish start is worrisome for any team, it was more of a concern for the Cardinals, who have built much of their success this season on building early leads.

The Virginia Cavaliers (2-5) lost against the North Carolina Tar Heels, 35-14, last week.

The Virginia front, led by middle linebacker Micah Kiser, was masterful in the opening 30, sacking Jackson three times, keeping him and the offense from finding their rhythm. The final drive, though, turned a bad day into a good one. Louisville trailed for the first time in the first quarter all season.

"We go through two-minute drills in practice, and it's fun getting to be the quarterback of the team (for those)", Jackson said. On the two-point conversion, Jackson found Smith again and the Cards somehow survived a game in which they were outplayed for long stretches, winning 32-25 on Saturday afternoon in Charlottesville, Virginia. "I see Lamar, and I can't imagine there's somebody better than he is". Louisville drove 80 yards in eight plays on the next series and Jackson hit Reggie Bonnafon with an eight-yard dart in the back of the end zone, then the Cardinals forced the Cavaliers to punt on the next drive.

Fortunately, they did not let me down, in a sense, as Virginia ultimately followed the division's tried-and-true formula of letting everybody down.

"Coach believed that we could get it to go and [see] if we could win the game or not", Reid said.
