3. Northwestern RB Justin Jackson

Jackson has been a workhorse for Northwestern through four games this season, as he leads the country with 118 carries and his 516 yards is good for ninth in the country. Jackson’s 134-yard outing against Stanford shows he can perform against a tough defense, and the Gophers will be challenged to contain the sophomore on Saturday.
