Lamar Jackson, Louisville get in fight against Kentucky

On Monday, Louisville running back Reggie Bonnafon noted that in this series, "if you make a play in this game everybody kind of remembers it".

Jackson, the defending Heisman Trophy victor who's been mounting a pretty good case to become the first repeat victor since Archie Griffin in 1975, received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after he retaliated against Kentucky linebacker Jordan Jones, who also was flagged for the same penalty.

It was the seventh time Snell has gone over 100 yards in a game this season and also the sixth time he's scored more than one touchdown in a game. Unfortunately for United Kingdom, it wasn't enough to overcome the offensive attack Louisville poured on. In the first quarter, Jackson was tackled on UK's one-yard line, just short of a touchdown. Jackson got up and bumped linebacker Jordan Jones.

Jones and Jackson wrestled each other to the ground, and then both teams got involved in the fight as referees tried to separate them.

The two sides were given offsetting unsportsmanlike conduct penalties, so the result of the play stood as it occurred.

Through the rest of the game, altercations between players continued to break out as Louisville continued to put points on the board, carrying a 31-10 lead into halftime. Snell was the lone bright spot for the Cats with a career-high 211 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries.
