Lamar Jackson became the 80th Heisman Trophy winner Saturday evening. That was expected. Jackson was a Heisman favorite since he scored eight touchdowns in Week 1.
But his suit jacket was a surprise. Jackson flashed a bright red Louisville-inspired top. Considering Jackson is still a student-athlete -- a 19-year-old true sophomore who has to wait one more season before going to the NFL -- he must buy his own clothes. He is also not allowed to accept gifts or sponsorship opportunities.
Don't worry. Apparently, that blazer is extremely cheap. According to theScore, Jackson's jacket is normally $295, but it is currently on sale for $85.99 at Macy's.
With that said, Jackson's shoes may be a different story. According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, Jackson's Monster Leather Moccasins are $900 from Fendi. Still no word on that sale.

Maybe Jackson had a gift card.
