With ESPN’s College GameDay in town this week, the University of Louisville will be getting tons of extra coverage from the four letter network over the next few days. As you could expect, the first player to receive a national feature from SportsCenter is Lamar Jackson.
On Tuesday evening Jackson will be featured as the College Football week two ESPN SportsCenter “Big Man on Campus.” See press release below.
A SportsCenter crew traveled to the school’s campus to take a look at a day in the life of Jackson just days removed from his 2-0 team’s 62-28 win over ACC foe Syracuse. In that game, Jackson accounted for an ACC record 610 yards from scrimmage, including completing 20-of-39 pass attempts for 411 yards and one touchdown, and rushing for 199 yards and four more scores
The feature will debut in the 6 p.m. ET edition of SportsCenter and re-air in other editions of the program throughout the evening.
No. 10 Louisville will host No. 2 Florida State on Saturday at noon ET with the game airing on ABC, college football’s first game of the season featuring two Top 10 teams. The matchup will receive additional buildup on Saturday morning with College GameDay Built by The Home Depot (9 a.m. on ESPN) airing from Louisville.
Additionally, SportsCenter will have a presence from the ACC showdown as anchor Sara Walsh and reporter Michael Eaves will be in Louisville on Saturday, Sept. 17 (7 a.m. on ESPN).<
