On Saturday, Northwestern running back Justin Jackson ran for 144 yards on 18 carries against the Illinois Fighting Illini. That means Jackson now has 5,283 career rushing yards. That also means he passed some impressive names on the NCAA all-time rushing list.

With those 144 yards, Jackson was able to pass Wisconsin’s Montee Ball, Georgia’s Herschel Walker, and TCU’s LaDainian Tomlinson.


Those are some impressive names for Jackson to surpass. Jackson is also now 20 yards away from being in the NCAA top-10 for rushing yards in a career.
