Michigan State WR Trishton Jackson ‘ready’ to compete against older brother

In his first-career start Saturday, Michigan State wide receiver Trishton Jackson had three catches for 41 yards in a 35-10 win over Bowling Green.

His second-career start will likely come this weekend against Western Michigan, where he’ll have a chance to compete against a very familiar face. Obbie Jackson, Trishton’s older brother, starts at cornerback for the Broncos. The siblings will likely line up opposite each other at times throughout the game, an opportunity Trishton has waited for since the end of fall camp.

“I want to score on him,”  Trishton told MLive.com’s Matt Wenzel.

The brothers began talking about this possibility about a year ago, and now it’s a reality.

To prepare, Trishton isn’t just relying on his childhood experiences or time with Obbie at West Bloomfield High School in Michigan. He caught some of Western Michigan’s loss to USC last weekend, and on Tuesday, he watched about an hour of film on his brother and possible on-field matchup.
