Iowa's Jackson earns Walter Camp honor

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Iowa defensive back Josh Jackson earned the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week honor on Sunday. Jackson's ability to force turnovers played a major role in Iowa's shocking 55-24 win over No. 6 Ohio State on Saturday.

Jackson tied a school record with three pass interceptions off of Buckeye Heisman Trophy hopeful JT Barrett. The Iowa junior added three solo tackles in the win.

Jackson and the Iowa defense allowed Ohio State's high powered offense to score just seven second half points. He joins senior linebacker Josey Jewell as a Walter Camp Defensive Player of the Week recipient.
