Saturday’s win over Florida was a monumental moment for the Kentucky Wildcats, so of course, several players are getting honored for helping end the 31-game streak.
On Monday, the SEC announced that senior linebacker Josh Allen was the SEC Defensive Player of the Week, while guard Bunchy Stallings is the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week.
Allen racked up five tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, a sack, a forced fumble, a pass breakup and quarterback hurry. He also sealed the win when he strip-sacked Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks on the final play of the game. Franks fumbled on the play, which safety Davonte Robinson scooped up and returned for a touchdown to end that dreaded streak.
Allen leads all active SEC players with 16.5 sacks to go along with 24 tackles for loss. In two games this season, he has recorded 15 total tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks and a forced fumble.
Stallings was a force along a Kentucky offensive line that paved the way for 303 rushing yards. He also engulfed another human being:
