Louisville quarterback, and newly minted Heisman Trophy winner, Lamar Jackson had been the frontrunner to win the award since mid-September after he lead the Cardinals to a 63-20 blowout victory over Florida State. Jackson ran for 150 yards, and accounted for 5 TDs against the Seminoles and seemed like Heisman lock throughout the following two months.

However, in late November, Louisville suffered a bad 36-10 loss to Houston and Jackson had his worst game of the season. The performance was enough for some to essentially strip Jackson of the trophy during and after the game…



Despite the loss to Houston, Jackson still seemed to hold onto his lead in the Heisman race. But two weeks later, Louisville were upset 41-38 by Kentucky after Jackson had a costly fumble in the red zone with under two minutes to play in the 4th quarter.  To some, that was it.
