LEXINGTON — Senior tackle Corey Peters had one of his best games in Kentucky's 24-13 win at Vanderbilt last week and has been named Southeastern Conference Defensive Lineman of the Week for his effort.
He had five tackles, including 1.5 for losses, and a quarterback pressure. Both his tackles for loss led to Vanderbilt punts and his quarterback pressure forced an incomplete pass.
His play helped the Wildcats limit Vanderbilt to just 209 total yards, the lowest total UK had allowed against a SEC opponent since 1996. The Wildcats held the Commodores to no points, one first down and 31 yards in the second half.
"Corey Peters has been consistently good for us all season," Kentucky coach Rich Brooks said Monday.
McIntosh honored: Kicker Craig McIntosh has been named the National Kickoff Specialist of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards for his play at Vanderbilt.
