CLEVELAND, Ohio- Ohio quarterback Boo Jackson (Gardena, Calif.) was named Mid-American Conference East Division Offensive Player of the Week Monday by the league office. It marked the second straight week that an Ohio quarterback (Phil Bates) has won the award.
Jackson was a triple threat of sorts in Ohio's 38-10 win over Akron. He completed 14-of-21 passes for 161 yards, one touchdown (and one interception) with two rushing scores (both one-yard runs). He also hauled in a 42-yard bomb deep down the middle off the arm of Bates. His two passing touchdowns also tied him for the school's all-time touchdown passing record of 29.
Jackson is already the program's all-time leader in completion percentage (.606), pass efficiency (136.04), total offense per play (6.19) and passing yards per attempt (7.5). He also stands sixth in passing yards (3,462), seventh with 280 completions and eighth with 462 pass attempts.
The Bobcats (4-3, 3-1 MAC) will be back in action Saturday at 1 p.m. ET when they travel to Oxford to take on Miami (4-3, 3-0 MAC).
