Against Purdue, Jewell posted 13 tackles, 2 sacks, and 3 pass breakups. It brought his total number of tackles to 117, which ranks No. 3 in the nation, even after missing the Northwestern game.

Jewell is one of five finalists for the Bronko Nagurski Award, a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award, and a semifinalist for the end of the season Lott IMPACT Trophy. He was a semifinalist for the Bednarik and Butkus Awards but did not make it to the final round.
