Louisville Cardinals quarterback Lamar Jackson is the favorite to win the prestigious Heisman Trophy award on Dec. 10 in New York City. The sophomore has a wide-gap over those that are chasing him in the race.

The Cardinals presently lead the Virginia Cavaliers, 32-25, in the fourth quarter. But, according to Fox Sports 1 personality Skip Bayless, the chase is over.

Against the Cavaliers, Jackson has gone 22 of 37 for 327 yards with three touchdowns and an interception. He also has 15 carries for 56 yards.

Two of Jackson’s touchdown passes have gone to Reggie Bonnafon.

Bonnafon has a 10-yard touchdown reception at 13:47 in the fourth quarter. At 4:03 in the third quarter, he also caught an eight-yard touchdown reception.

Jamari Staples caught a 15-yard touchdown reception at 3:36 in the first quarter.

If Jackson is able to win the award in Dec., it’ll be the first-time that a Cardinals player has won the award. They will be one of 22 schools, who have one winner of the award.

He’ll also be the first player to be a first-time winner for their school since Marcus Mariota when he won for the Oregon Ducks in 2014. Robert Griffin III was also a first-time winner for his school when he won the award in 2011 for the Baylor Bears.
