Watch Eddie Jackson Return Interception For TD [VIDEO]
ATHENS, Ga. -- For Alabama, it wasn't even its first non-offensive touchdown of the game.
On Georgia's first play from scrimmage in the second half Saturday, junior safety Eddie Jackson picked off Bulldogs backup quarterback Brice Ramsey for a 50-yard touchdown. The score extended Alabama's lead to 31-3.
In the first half, the Crimson Tide scored on a special teams touchdown, when true freshman defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick blocked and returned a punt to push Alabama's lead to 17-3.
As a team, Jackson's interception return for a touchdown was the first by Alabama since Landon Collins' 89-yard run back against Tennessee in 2013.
For Jackson, it's his fourth career interception, second this season, and first touchdown. He intercepted a pass against Wisconsin in the season opener earlier this season.
Jackson, from Lauderdales Lake, Florida, made the transition from cornerback to safety this offseason.
