Oct. 31, 2011
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Three University of Kentucky football players, including senior punter Ryan Tydlacka, junior kicker Craig McIntosh and senior linebacker Danny Trevathan, have been named honorable mention players of the week by the College Football Performance Awards for their impressive performance against Mississippi State on Saturday.
This is the second-consecutive week Tydlacka has taken home honorable mention player of the week honors. The native of Louisville, Ky., punted four times against Mississippi State, averaging 47.2 yards per punt, including pinning MSU within its own 10-yard line once. Tydlacka is having a fantastic season for UK, ranking third in the Southeastern Conference in punting and 19th in the nation.
McIntosh had a perfect game on Saturday, going three-for-three in field goals hitting from 22 yards, 32 yards and 35 yards. The native of Lexington, Ky., is 9-for-10 this year in field goals and 15-for-15 in extra points, which leads Kentucky in scoring with 42 total points.
Trevathan had a fantastic game for Kentucky, tying a career high with 17 tackles, his third interception of the season, and also caused his third fumble of the season. The native of Leesburg, Fla., has earned an interception in two-consecutive games, becoming the first player to notch back-to-back games with picks since Winston Guy in 2010 against Auburn and South Carolina. Trevathan leads the SEC in tackles with 94, while he ranks tied for fifth in the nation.
Kentucky returns to action on Saturday when it concludes a three-game homestand against Ole Miss at 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPNU.
