Congratulations to CJ Conrad, who was named the John Mackey Tight End of the Week after a career performance vs. New Mexico State. Conrad had five catches for 133 yards and three touchdowns vs. the Aggies, the first 100-yard game of his career.

Conrad is the first UK tight end with three touchdowns in a game since first-team All-American James Whalen in 1999, and his 133 receiving yards are the third-most by a tight end in a game in school history. He’s also the only UK player to have at least 133 receiving yards and three touchdowns in Commonwealth Stadium history.
