Iowa offensive tackle Alaric Jackson was suspended for the 2017 Pinstripe Bowl against Boston College for an undisclosed reason. However, Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz announced on Tuesday that Jackson’s suspension will not carry over in the 2018 season.

Jackson was suspended for the bowl game because of an unspecified violation of team policy. Despite not having Jackson, though, the Hawkeyes went on to win the bowl game, 27-20.
The redshirt sophomore was a staple on Iowa’s offensive line in 2017, earning him a spot on the Big Ten’s All-Freshman team.
Jackson will be available to play in Iowa’s season opener on Sept. 1 against Northern Illinois at Kinnick Stadium.
