Top 2013 performances: Myles Jack

By Kevin Gemmell

We're looking at some of the top individual performances in the Pac-12 in 2013.

Up next: Dawgs get Jack’d (and Marsh’d)

Myles Jack
UCLA freshman LB/RB Myles Jack had four rushing touchdowns in a victory over Washington.
Who and against whom: UCLA freshman linebacker/running back Myles Jack took his offensive encore to another level as the Bruins topped the Huskies 41-31 at home.

The numbers: Jack rushed for 59 yards on 13 carries with four touchdowns. On the other side of the ball -- at his "real" position -- he added five tackles and a pass breakup.

A closer look: One week earlier against Arizona, the nation got its first glance at Jack the running back. He carried six times for 120 yards and a touchdown – including a 66-yard score in the win over the Wildcats. A week later, the Huskies couldn’t keep him down (or other UCLA defensive-turned-offensive-players for that matter). Jack opened the scoring with an 8-yard touchdown run. A series later, defensive end Cassius Marsh caught a 2-yard touchdown pass to give the Bruins a 14-0 lead. And we’re going to give Marsh a little extra credit on that catch. Brett Hundley didn’t exactly soft toss it. Jack would add his second and third touchdown runs -- both from 1 yard out -- in the first half as the Bruins held a 27-17 advantage at the break. He added No. 4, a 2-yard run, midway through the third quarter. He became the first UCLA freshman to score four times in a game. The Bruins scored touchdowns on their first four possessions and five of their six scores came from players who are defense first.
