With the game already out of reach, Josh Jackson solidified his position as the nation's best cornerback with an incredible one-handed interception.
Josh Jackson might have just had the best game an Iowa defensive back has ever recorded.
Jackson recorded three interceptions against Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett (a legitimate Heisman contender when the sun rose over Kinnick Stadium on Saturday), tying an Iowa record held by Grant Steen and Tyler Sash. Jackson's last two picks were absolutely bonkers: a theft from the hands of Jalyn Holmes, then this one-handed snag that will live in Hawkeye lore forever:
The effort will win Jackson some well-deserved national award recognition, including ESPN's #1 spot on the night's Top 10 plays. It'll also likely cement his status as a first-round draft pick this spring, barring some knowledge the NFL has that we don't. And we would prefer if the NFL never shares that sort of information back to college football, because my goodness, Josh Jackson is a national treasure.
