University of Kentucky junior Randall Cobb was one of four players named Monday as “Paul Hornung’s Most Valuable Performers of the Week” by the Louisville Sports Commission for his play in UK’s 37-34 loss to Auburn last week.
The LSC is sponsoring the inaugural Paul Hornung Award for the most versatile player in college football.
Cobb had two short scoring runs, threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Aumiller and caught a 16-yard touchdown pass from Mike Hartline.
He became the first UK player since Shane Boyd in 2003 to run for a touchdown, catch a TD pass and throw a scoring pass in the same game. He also tied the Kentucky career touchdown record held by Craig Yeast by scoring his 32nd touchdown.
Cobb had 207 total yards during the game — 47 rushing, 68 receiving, 86 on kickoff returns and six passing yards.
