Kentucky's Eli Cox Named SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky offensive lineman Eli Cox has been named Southeastern Conference Offensive Lineman of the Week for his stellar performance in the Wildcats’ 28-17 victory over Eastern Kentucky, it was announced Monday by the league office.

This is the second time Cox has won the award in his career. He also received the accolade following UK’s 42-21 victory over LSU in 2021.

Cox, a senior from Nicholasville, Kentucky, played every offensive snap and graded out at 86 percent by the coaches. He did not allow a quarterback pressure or sack and incurred no penalties at both the right guard and center positions. It was the team captain’s 32nd career game, 24 of which have been starts, including 15 straight.

The Wildcats (2-0) rank fourth in the SEC in both yards per play and rushing yards per attempt. Cox has been named to multiple preseason All-SEC teams and provides a steady, veteran presence on the interior of UK’s rebuilt Big Blue Wall.

UK will play host to Akron at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, September 16. The game will be televised on ESPNU.
