Utah’s Ja’Quinden Jackson Powers Into End Zone Against Washington State
The Cougars hosted the Utes at Martin Stadium in Pullman, Washington.
With 9:23 remaining in the first half, Jackson took a handoff from Bryson Barnes before running up the middle for six yards and six points. A few feet before the goal line, Jackson was met by the Wazzu defense. The quarterback turned running back battled through the would-be tacklers and into the end zone for his second touchdown run of the season.

Jackson entered the contest with 16 carries for 65 yards and a touchdown in four games played this season.
Utah opened its season with a disappointing three-point loss on the road to the Florida Gators. After that, the Utes went on a four-game winning streak that included a pair of Pac-12 Conference victories. Following a loss on the road to the UCLA Bruins, the Utes bounced back with a 43-42 win over the Trojans in Week 7. A bye week last week will have the Utes well rested for another conference foe in Washington State.
The Cougars opened their 2022 slated on a hot streak, winning their first three contests, including a road win over the Wisconsin Badgers. However, after a home loss to the Oregon Ducks, the Cougars have lost three of their last four games and the last two in a row.
The Utes and Cougars have previously played each other 19 times. Utah owns a 10-9 lead in the series all-time. The Utes won the last meeting between the two schools, 24-13, in 2021.
Utah’s game against Washington State is broadcast on FS1 and 700 AM.
