KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Senior defensive lineman Corey Miller added his second honor of the day on Monday night, earning NCAA National Defensive Player of the Week accolades for his record-setting performance in the Vols’ 27-14 win at Kentucky on Saturday.

 

With 4.5 sacks against the Wildcats, Miller broke Tennessee’s 30-year old single-game sack record set by Professional Football Hall of Famer Reggie White. White registered 4.0 sacks against The Citadel on Oct. 1, 1983.

 

Miller finished the game with a career-best seven tackles, 4.5 sacks and one forced fumble, and was named the SEC’s Co-Defensive Lineman of the Week.

 

The Wellford, S.C., native closed his senior season with 6.5 total sacks, the most since former Vols Parys Haralson – currently of the New Orleans Saints – posted 8.5 and Jason Hall picked up 7.0 in 2005.
