05/11/2014 - A closer look at the Giants' picks: Round 6/187 -- Bennett Jackson, CB, 6-0, 195, Notre Dame...With their final pick in the 2014 draft, the Giants added Jackson, a cornerback to an already crowded cornerback field. If he's to make this team, however, he'll have to do so on special teams, which happens to be an area in which he excelled early on in his collegiate career. - The Sports Xchange

12/24/2013 - 2013 FBS ALL-INDEPENDENT FIRST TEAM (MEDIA): DB Bennett Jackson (Sr.) Notre Dame,...Has been selected to the 2013 FBS All-Independent First Team named by the nationwide media panel responsible for the FBS Independent Player of the Week awards. - Notre Dame football

09/07/2013 - Scouting the Notre Dame pass defense: Temple moved the ball with a short passing game last week, but didn't do much damage through the air overall. "Really, at the end of the day, those little short passes are not going to win any games," Irish cornerback Bennett Jackson said. "They're not point-producing plays, so we just try to keep the ball in front of us and make the tackle." The Irish face a more skillful quarterback in Devin Gardner this week who piled up 213 yards total offense but was also picked off twice. - The Sports Xchange

07/17/2013 - 2013 BEDNARIK AWARD WATCH LIST: CB Bennett Jackson, Notre Dame...Jackson started all 13 games at cornerback last year. He proved to be an exceptional cornerback, moving into one of two vacancies at the start of the season. Jackson ranked third on the Irish with 65 tackles, trailing only Manti Te'o and Zeke Motta. He recorded 45 solo stops and collected four interceptions. Jackson tied for 39th in the FBS in interceptions (0.31/game).

He was the first Irish cornerback to record four interceptions in a season since Mike Richardson finished with the same amount in 2006. Jackson had four tackles, a key interception that prevented a touchdown and combined for another tackle on the crucial fourth-down overtime play that gave Notre Dame a victory over Stanford (Oct. 13). He helped an Irish pass defense rank second in the country in passing yards/completion (9.95) and tied for sixth in the nation in passing touchdowns (10). - Notre Dame football
