Maryland earned a statement win on Saturday beating Syracuse 63-20 behind a stellar performance from Jackson. Jackson was 21 of 38 for 296 yards with three touchdowns and an interception. Jackson put the game away with a pair of touchdown passes in the final five minutes of the first half. Maryland finished the day with 650 total yards of offense.
“I think we were very confident in ourselves,” Jackson said after the game. “The style of play is hard to match. Our tempo and the way we execute, that’s how we go out and expect it. None of us thought this was a surprise for us to be able to put up points. I’m just glad we were able to go out and do it.”
