Kentucky senior offensive tackle Landon Young has been named the Southeastern Conference Offensive Lineman of the Week, the league announced today. It marks the second time in his career he has earned the honor.

Young’s performance was a crucial part of the Wildcats’ 34-7 defeat of No. 18/17 Tennessee on Saturday, the first UK victory in Knoxville since 1984. The veteran tackle graded at 90 percent with 10 knockdown blocks as the Cats piled up 187 rushing yards, including 159 in the second half as they took control of the line of scrimmage with a bruising ground game. The 6-foot-7, 321-pounder from Lexington, Kentucky, did not allow any sacks or quarterback pressures and did not miss an assignment or commit a penalty. He produced 22 blocks at the point of attack, including Chris Rodriguez’ two-yard touchdown run.
