UofL FOOTBALL | Syracuse trying to prepare for Lamar Jackson

09/06/2016 08:20 PM

With one win under their belt and a number of teams in the AP Top-25 losing their season openers, the University of Louisville football team climbed six spots in the latest polls to become the number 13 team in the nation. They are now looking at their ACC opener against Syracuse this Friday, which means preparing for a difficult game in the Carrier Dome. But the Orange have the more difficult task of figuring out how to stop an athlete as dynamic as Lamar Jackson, which head coach Dino Babers is finding impossible to do.

We also spoke to former U of L Quarterback Adam Froman about Lamar’s improvements from last season, and in his coaching experience, how he would prepare for a player like Jackson.
