Lamar Jackson and Louisville needed less than two minutes Saturday to get rid of a whole week's worth of bad feelings from a lackluster effort against Duke.
Jackson broke a school single-season record with four first-half touchdowns, Louisville had three interceptions leading to 17 points and the seventh-ranked Cardinals burst past North Carolina State 54-13 on Saturday.
"I was mad at myself from the Duke game and coach saw that," said Jackson, who completed 20 of 34 passes for 355 yards. "I was like, 'I've got to prove I can't be out here, looking bad, looking to run all the time.' I tried to do less running and more throwing."
