Josh Allen, George Asafo-Adjei Earn SEC Player of the Week Honors

It’s a Three-Peat for Josh Allen.

For the third time in four weeks Josh Allen was named SEC Defensive Player of the Week.  He is joined by George Asafo-Adjei, who was named SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week.

Allen had eight tackles, four for loss, three sacks and a forced fumble in the win over South Carolina.  The UK outside linebacker has six sacks on the season.  He needs six more to break the single-season and all-time UK sack records.  Allen leads the SEC in sacks and tackles for loss and is 12th in tackles.

Big George is the third Kentucky offensive lineman to receive the SEC award in four weeks.  The redshirt senior right tackle graded out at 90 percent, had two knockdown blocks, no missed assignments or sacks allowed.

Kentucky is owning the weekly SEC awards.  Get used to it.
