Northwestern has found itself in a season-opening battle with Western Michigan. The Wildcats are thankful they have Justin Jackson.
The running back is accountable for both of Northwestern’s first two touchdowns on the afternoon, and his 46-yard run — where he hit the hole and took off — gave the Wildcats the lead in the third quarter. Watch the run below:

Jackson, a junior who has rushed for at least 1,100 yards in both of his first two seasons, even added a personal touch to the touchdown.
How did @J_ManPrime21 know we were craving a 'JJ Leap'?
