Jackson joins 50 passing, 50 rushing TD club

  Jackson joins Tim Tebow and Colin Kaepernick as the only members of the 50-50 club in FBS history.

Larmar Jackson's impressive career just added another accolade which puts him in elite company.

Jackson, who finished third in this year's Heisman voting, entered Saturday's game with 67 passing touchdowns and 49 rushing. Tebow finished his career with 88 pasing and 57 rushing tochdowns, while Kaepernick totaled 82 passing and 59 rushing touchdowns.
