Thompson struggled with his accuracy against Ole Miss, but that shouldn't come as a surprise given his lack of experience. He threw just six picks in the regular season. In what's likely to be his last collegiate game, Jackson should again impress with a dazzling performance.
But you knew Jackson wasn't going to be totally upstaged in this game, and sure enough, he had one of the best highlights of the game on this ankle-breaking touchdown run in the second quarter to tie the game at 14-14.
Trump says East could use some 'global warming' this weekend
In September, he answered a question on climate change and Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, which hit Florida and Texas, respectively. In 2016, he tweeted from the West Coast, "Ice storm rolls from Texas to Tennessee - I'm in Los Angeles and it's freezing".
State (8-4, 4-4 SEC) is vying for its third nine-win season in the past four years and is searching for its third consecutive bowl victory. Jackson even had a chance to win the game in the final minute, but Mississippi State's front seven, which had dominated most of the game, ended up winning the game on the field.
Thompson completed 11 of 20 passes for 127 yards. West Virginia's Pat White set the previous mark with 145 yards in 2007. Prior to the post-season game, Jackson was widely expected to forgo his final year of eligibility and enter the National Football League draft. Interim head coach Greg Knox, along with multiple assistants in new positions, led the team after former head coach Dan Mullen left for Florida, taking assistants with him.
Trump condemns attack on Coptic Christians
Pope Tawadros II says that since 2013 there have been 37 sectarian attacks on Christians in Egypt, almost one incident per month. The Times notes another incident was reported on Friday involving a gun attack in Helwan at an appliance shop owned by a Copt.
If he is leaving, he went out setting records. He also broke his own school records for rushing yards and yards from scrimmage. Lamar Jackson (1,443 yards, 17 TDs) is the leading rusher, but running backs Malik Williams (518, 4) and Reggie Bonnafon (446, 7) have done their part as well. Jackson also entered the 50-50 club with 50 career touchdowns rushing and 50 career touchdowns passing, joining Colin Kaepernick and Tim Tebow as the only players in FBS history with career totals above 50 and 50. He also has a rushing score, so that playing experience could be beneficial, especially considering the Cardinals open next season against perennial power Alabama in nearby Orlando on September 1.
