Junior wide receiver Eric Page earned honorable mention honors for national wide receiver of the week by both Rivals.com and the College Football Performance Awards.
Page caught 12 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-22 loss to Ohio State on Saturday. He also threw for a two-point conversion and returned a kickoff 42 yards.
Page moved into third place in school history in career receptions (198), tied for fourth place in consecutive games with a catch (27), and tied for fifth in TD catches (18). He needs 32 receptions to pass Stephen Williams (Arizona Cardinals) as UT’s all-time leading receiver.
He also was one of six players named to the Paul Hornung Award Weekly Honor Roll. The weekly recognition honors versatile, single-game performances around the nation by Football Bowl Subdivision student-athletes.
And he was named the Mid-American Conference West Division Offensive Player of the Week.
