Watch Eddie Jackson’s Game-Changing 85-Yard Punt Return Touchdown
Alabama found itself down 21 points late in the first half and Ole Miss had a stranglehold on momentum. The Crimson Tide put together a quick touchdown drive and defensive stop to get the ball back with just over a minute left in the half.
If Alabama could score even three more points in that short amount of time, the team would have some momentum coming out of the locker room in the third quarter.
Eddie Jackson had different ideas.
The senior and game captain on Saturday took a punt 85 yards for a touchdown and completely changed the feel of the game.
This was Jackson's second-straight game with a non-offensive touchdown. Last week against Western Kentucky, the safety returned an interception 55 yards for a score.
Alabama moved to 3-0 on the season and returns to Tuscaloosa for a non-conference game against Kent State next Saturday.
