Jackson earns Mountain West honor

After totaling 246 yards of offense and three touchdowns in a 41-7 win over
San Diego State, TCU quarterback Marcus Jackson has been named the Mountain
West Conference Co-Offensive Player of the Week.

Jackson shares the award with Colorado State running back Gartrell Johnson,
who rushed for 191 yards and three touchdowns in a 41-28 victory against

It's the second time Jackson has received MWC Player of the Week honors. The
first occasion came in his collegiate debut. With TCU trailing Baylor 7-0 at
the half in the 2006 season opener, Jackson came off the bench to complete
11-of-13 passes for 148 yards and two touchdowns to rally the Horned Frogs
to a 17-7 win in Waco.

Against San Diego State, Jackson was making just his second collegiate
start. He rushed for a career-high 131 yards on 27 carries with scoring runs
of 9 and 3 yards. It was his second 100-yard game in the last three
contests. He ran for 115 yards at SMU (Sept. 20).

Jackson completed 10-of-19 passes for 115 yards, including a 3-yard scoring
toss to Shae Reagan.

A junior from Houston, Jackson was instrumental in the Frogs running 90
plays from scrimmage compared to just 41 for the Aztecs. TCU held a 43:29 to
16:31 edge in time of possession.
