LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The University of Louisville is stepping up its Heisman Trophy campaign for Lamar Jackson, the star sophomore quarterback of the football team. 

Friday, UofL released a video featuring some of Jackson's best highlights from the season so far for the Cardinals (4-1), who host Duke at 7 p.m. Friday night in an Atlantic Coast Conference game. 

Through five games Jackson, who is considered the current frontrunner for college football's most coveted individual award, has accounted for 2,313 yards of total offense and 28 total touchdowns. He has completed 101 of 170 passes (59.4 percent) for 1,625 yards and 14 touchdowns with just four interceptions. Meanwhile he has also rushed 92 times for 688 yards - an average of 7.5 yards per carry - for 14 more scores.
