LEXINGTON, Ky. – Offensive coordinator Joker Phillips and quarterback André Woodson have received national honors following Kentucky’s 43-37 triple-overtime win over then-No. 1 ranked LSU last Saturday.
Phillips was named National Coordinator of the Week by Rivals.com and National Offensive Coordinator of the Week by the Master Coaches Survey. Kentucky scored 27 points and had 333 yards total offense in regulation play – the most given up this season by the stout LSU defense, and most points the Tigers had allowed in regulation since the 2005 SEC Championship Game. This is the second time that Phillips has won the honor from the Master Coaches Survey, also winning following the 2006 win over Georgia.
Woodson was named National Player of the Week by Rivals.com. He completed 21 of 38 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winning seven-yard TD to wide receiver Steve Johnson in the third overtime. He also rushed three times for 16 yards, including a 12-yard TD run. This marks the fourth time in his career, and third time this season, that Woodson has received a National Player of the Week honor.
