LAS VEGAS, Nev. - The honors continued to roll in for Kameron Jackson on Wednesday when he was selected by fans as the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas Pac-12 Player of the Week that he was nominated for on Monday when he was also selected the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week. A day earlier, he was one of two nationally selected Defensive Back Performers of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards.
All of Jackson's honors are for his performance off the bench in a 43-17 win over No. 25 UCLA at Memorial Stadium last Saturday night when he had a Pac-12 single-game season high with three interceptions after replacing injured starting cornerback Marc Anthony in the first quarter. His first interception came in the Cal end zone with 0:23 seconds remaining in the first half and preserved a 16-7 Bears' lead at the break. He would add two more in the fourth quarter to seal the game. Jackson also had four tackles and Cal's lone pass breakup in the contest.
Cal (2-4, 1-2 Pac-12) is next in action at Washington State this Saturday, Oct. 13. The game will be televised by Pac-12 Networks and kick off at 7:30 p.m. PT.
Games remaining on Cal's 2012 regular-season home schedule at Memorial Stadium include a Friday night contest vs. Washington (Nov. 2, 6 p.m. PT, ESPN2) and the regular-season home finale against No. 2 Oregon (Nov. 10, TBA). The Golden Bears also have road games at Utah (Oct. 27) and No. 10/14 Oregon State (Nov. 17).
