Hartline awarded SEC offensive honor

University of Kentucky quarterback Mike Hartline has been named Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week.

Hartline completed 28 of 47 passes for 254 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in UK's 20-14 victory over Middle Tennessee State on Saturday.

The 6-foot-6, 204-pound sophomore from Canton, Ohio, led a 57-yard, fourth-quarter scoring drive, capped by a touchdown pass to Derrick Locke, that put the Wildcats ahead for good, 17-14.

On his next drive, Hartline led the Cats to a field goal.

Hartline has not thrown an interception this season and has a streak of 96 consecutive passes without a pick dating to last season.
