Did you really think we were going to go an entire day without at least TWO Lynn Bowden posts? HA! That’s rich. It’s impossible to keep this dude out of the news, especially when he’s been nominated for another weekly award.
This week, the Kentucky quarterback has been tabbed one of eight gunslingers from this past week that are up for the Manning Award Star of the Week. You might remember that Bowden has already won this award back in October following the 24-20 win over Arkansas thanks to the Big Blue Nation voting him in as the winner. Well, get ready to vote again, folks, because he doesn’t deserve to lose this week.
Bowden was a Football God in Kentucky’s trouncing of the Red Team on Saturday, rushing for a career-high of 284 yards to go along with his four touchdowns. He only threw the ball twice, completing one of them for four yards, but that’s not the point. Bowden lined up at quarterback the entire game with the Lousiville defense knowing full-well that the former wide-receiver was going to run right down their throats – and there was nothing they could do to stop him.
The voting is conducted through a Facebook poll on the Allstate Sugar Bowl page and you vote by “liking” the photo of the player of your choosing (i.e. Bowden). You can vote through the link here.
At the time I type up this post, Bowden currently leads with over 2,400 votes while Florida quarterback Kyle Trask sits in second with a mere 1,200 likes. Let’s go ahead and boost that lead to at least 3,000 likes, shall we? Voting ends early on Wednesday and the winner will be announced shortly after.
Joining Bowden and Trask on the list are Sam Ehlinger (Texas), Justin Fields (Ohio State), Bryce Perkins (Virginia), Peyton Ramsey (Indiana), Zach Smith (Tulsa), and Zac Thomas (App. State).
