A new day means a new award for Kentucky’s Josh Allen, the best edge rusher in college football.
Today it’s the Lott IMPACT Trophy Player of the Week Award for Allen, following his dominant performance of the SEC’s third-best offense at Missouri. Allen recorded 11 tackles (nine solo), including a pair of quarterback sacks and two forced fumbles in the win.
This is Allen’s second time taking the Lott IMPACT honor this season, and Kentucky will receive $1,000 for its general scholarship fund in recognition of his performance.
Allen had already been named SEC Defensive Player of the Week and Walter Camp Football Foundation National Defensive Player of the Week for what he did to Drew Lock and the Tigers.
He now leads the SEC and ranks second in the country in sacks, and leads the SEC and ranks third nationally in tackles for loss. He also ranks second nationally in forced fumbles.
Now let’s get him in the Heisman talk!
