Sure, he missed the first game of the year at Memphis. But I think he has sufficiently made up for it this season. He has just been honored as SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week. For the third time. In the last four weeks.
- Cox posted a career-best seven tackles with 3.5 tackles for loss and a pair of sacks in Mississippi State's 28-16 win at Kentucky.
- In the first quarter alone, Cox was credited with four tackles, three tackles for loss and a pair of sacks as the Bulldog defense held Kentucky to a total of 12 yards on their final two possessions of the quarter.
- Cox first TFL came on 2-and-1, pushing Kentucky back and forcing a punt on the first possession. Cox then posted back-to-back sacks to force another Kentucky punt.
