Maybe quarterbacks should stop throwing in Josh Jackson’s direction.
Fresh off a three-interception performance last week against Ohio State, the Iowa defensive back came up with another big play, recording a pick-six on the first possession of the game. It was a mirror of what happened last week, when Hawkeye defender Amani Hooker returned an interception for a touchdown on the first play of the game against the Buckeyes.
It was a tremendous spark for the Hawkeyes, who are trying to pull off a second-straight upset victory.
Last week it took one play. Today it took a whole 1:30 for a pick six…The @HawkeyeFootball defense must be slipping. 😉

That interception was Jackson’s sixth of the season, which leads the B1G. It was his first pick-six of the year, though it was Iowa’s third as a team.
Iowa came into the game with 13 interceptions on the year, which ranked second in the conference and ninth nationally. Last week against Ohio State, the Hawkeyes had four picks, with Jackson accounting for three.
So yeah, maybe pick on someone else, B1G quarterbacks.
