Larry Paul Jacobson (born December 10, 1949) is a former professional football player, a defensive tackle for the New York Giants of the NFL. A first round selection in the 1972 NFL Draft (24th overall) and starter in his rookie year, his pro career was cut short by major injuries to the leg and foot.
During Jacobson's three seasons on the Huskers (1969–71), Nebraska was 33-2-1, with records of 9-2, 11-0-1, and 13-0, and three consecutive bowl victories. The 38-6 victory in the 1972 Orange Bowl over #2 Alabama was the Huskers' 22nd consecutive win, and 32nd without a loss.
He was the third Nebraska Cornhusker chosen in the first round of the 1972 NFL Draft (QBJerry Tagge - 11th, RBJeff Kinney - 23rd). A starter in his rookie year, Jacobson played three seasons with the Giants. A broken leg in training camp in 1975 ended his playing career, as he failed his physical in 1976.
Jacobson was an accounting major at Nebraska, and an Academic All-American. After his brief NFL career, he became a stockbroker with Morgan Stanley.
