Reggie Williams made a name for himself with his play and his mouth.
The brash wide receiver for Washington talked a mean game and backed it up with 973 yards in his freshman campaign, including 134 against the Wolverines in his very first appearence.
But Michigan star corner Marlin Jackson shut him up and shut him down on Saturday.
While Jackson was matched up man-to-man with Williams, he used an aggresive jamming style to limit the All-America candidate to just three catches and 29 yards.
When the final bell sounded on the heavyweight fight, Jackson was the clear winner.
"I believe I did, if I recall, win the battle," said Jackson, who posted a career-high six pass breakups against the Huskies. "He was a great player, but it wasn't his day."
Jackson repeatedly denied the deep ball to Williams, staying right in his hip pocket all the way down the sideline and turning Willimas into the defensive back on more than one occasion.
