Louisville defeats NC State 20-13

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Lamar Jackson ran and threw for touchdowns to help Louisville beat North Carolina State 20-13 on Saturday.

Jackson ran for 121 yards, including a 68-yard scoring sprint in the opening quarter, to lead a strong ground attack for the Cardinals (2-3, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference). He also threw for a 20-yard touchdown to Devante Peete in the second, giving the Cards a 14-0 lead on a day when they remained in firm control from the start.

The freshman quarterback completed just 10 of 27 passes, but the Cardinals ran for 203 yards against a defense that came in ranked third nationally by allowing just 205.8 yards.

Jacoby Brissett threw for a touchdown and Matt Dayes ran for one to lead the Wolfpack (4-1, 0-1), who managed just 228 yards and spent the entire game fighting uphill.
