Maryland quarterback Josh Jackson is starting to get some national recognition.
Following a 21-for-38, three touchdown, 296-yard performance that put the Terps over then-No. 21 Syracuse on Saturday, Jackson was named one of eight Manning Award Stars of the Week.
Other quarterbacks nominated include LSU’s Joe Burrow, Texas’ Sam Ehlinger, Oregon’s Justin Herbert, UNC’s Sam Howell, UAB’s Tyler Johnston III, Purdue’s Elijah Sindelar and USC’s Kedon Slovis.
The award, sponsored by the Allstate Sugar Bowl, honors the best quarterback performances in college football each week. Fans can then vote for who will be named the Manning Award Quarterback of the Week from the eight nominees.
Though the weekly award started in 2011, the actual Manning Award was created in 2004 to honor the best collegiate quarterback at the end of each season. Jackson wasn’t included on the preseason watch list released in August, but the committee is expected to add players to it later this season.
Jackson is currently behind in votes for the weekly award, but you can make your picks here.
