Campus Rush Podcast's Week 4 Preview: Lamar Jackson explains his rapid rise; plus, what's up with SEC QBs?

Thursday September 22nd, 2016

What pressure? Sure, Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson has the hopes of a fan base dreaming of a run to the College Football Playoff and the hype of becoming the early Heisman Trophy favorite resting on his shoulders. But don't expect him to sound nervous. As he tells Andy Staples on the Campus Rush Podcast, he's just grateful God gave him a breath.

The biggest rising star in college football joins the podcast to discuss the Cardinals' stunning win over Florida State, where he has improved the most since last season, the praise he got from Michael Vick and more.

Andy and co-host Lindsay Schnell also get you ready for Week 4 with breakdowns of the biggest games and biggest under-the-radar games of the week. Could Clay Helton really be on the hot seat if USC loses to Utah? How much does Butch Jones have riding on Tennessee's matchup with Florida?

Andy and Lindsay also take some questions from the mailbag on the state of quarterback play in the SEC, a potentially grotesque food innovation and more.
