In Saturday's 34-21 win over Kansas, a monster opportunity presented itself and Jackson pounced as he forced a fumble on a run play in the backfield and then was able to recover it in the ensuing dogpile.
Here is Jackson's description of what happened on the play after the game:
"We had just come out of a timeout and I noticed they had a tight end in who really doesn't play much, he's their second tight end, more of a run guy I noticed on film. So we knew it was a run right away and we kind of got them talking and they were trying to figure out who they were going to block. I was in a three (technique) and the guard kind of went down (the line). The quarterback was looking at me trying to figure out whether or not to pull (keep the ball) and I kind of slow played it. He gave the ball to the running back and I don't think the running back was really expecting it. I kind of got a hand on the ball and it came out. The rest of it was history."
