Talmadge Jackson III will wear No. 29 in honor of Todd Doxey at the Holiday Bowl. Jackson, a true sophomore, was part of the same class as the San Diego native, who was a victim of a swimming accident on the McKenzie River in Eugene-Springfield on July 13. The Ducks paid tribute to Doxey at all six home games this season and will do so for a final time in the late defensive back's hometown.
Jairus Byrd is one of six players to wear Todd Doxey's No. 29 this season.
