THE BEGINNING.

  • Was named The Walter Camp Football Foundation National Offensive Player of Week after putting on one of the greatest offensive displays in school history accounting for eight touchdowns -- all coming in the first half -- in the 70-14 season-opening win.
  • Jackson tied an ACC record, and set a school record, by accounting for eight touchdowns and passing for six scores in the win.
  • Only the second quarterback over the last 20 seasons in NCAA Division I history to throw for six touchdowns and rush for at least two in one game.
  • Finished the game with six passing touchdowns, two rushing, and 405 all-purpose yards (119 rushing, 286 passing). His eight touchdowns are an individual UofL record. Jackson's six passing scores tied a single-game school record, first set by Chris Redman in 1998 against East Carolina.
  • Scored on a 36-yard rush in the first quarter, giving the Cardinals their first touchdown of the year. The run pushed Jackson past the 1,000-yard mark for his career.
  • Jackson, who eclipsed 100-yards rushing in the first quarter and finished with 119, has surpassed the plateau in six of his 13 career games.
  • For three-straight games, dating back to the win over Kentucky, Jackson has surpassed the 100-yard plateau passing and rushing.
  • Charlotte head coach Brad Lambert - “[Lamar]'s just a superb athlete and he just can do that to you, he can make you look bad in a hurry. He's a heck of a player. I thought he threw the ball around really well. I watched him last year and seeing him live, he threw the ball nice. He's a good player and they were letting him drop back and throw the ball and if it breaks down, he has that ability to extend plays and I thought he saw he field and I watched him on film and seeing him live, he's a good quarterback a really good player.”
