SEC tabs McBride

The University of Tennessee's Turk McBride spearheaded the Vols' strong defensive effort last weekend against the Kentucky Wildcats and was named Southeastern Conference Defensive Lineman of the Week.

Turk McBride had eight tackles in the 17-12 victory and made a key fourth-down stop behind the line of scrimmage. The Vols denied all three of UK's fourth-down conversion attempts, including McBride's tackle for loss on fourth-and-2 early in the fourth quarter.

McBride, who played the season's first three games at end before moving to tackle because of a teammate's injury, leads all conference defensive tackles with 64 total stops.
