On Tuesday January 23, 2024 the Sabres fell to Fergus Falls by a score of 4-1. Although a disappointing loss for the Sabres on Senior Night, there was a positive outcome from this game as Jacobs received an assist on the Sabres only goal scored by senior forward, Baylor Stebbins. With this assist, Jacobs recorded his 23rd point of the season, tying the school record.

Jacobs would later go on to break the record in the Sabres matchup against the Bemidji Lumberjacks. It only took 14 minutes and 27 seconds into the first period for Jacobs to get an assist on a powerplay goal scored by senior forward, Tony Colatrella, to give the Sabres a 1-0 lead. The Sabres went on to win this game in overtime by a score of 2-1 and add a win to their record which currently sits at 13-5-1.
