Oct. 11, 2010

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Georgia Tech senior B-Back Anthony Allen was recognized as the Atlantic Coast Conference Co-Offensive Back of the Week, announced Monday by the ACC. Allen shares the weekly honor with NC State’s Russell Wilson.

Allen rushed for a Georgia Tech career-high 195 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries Saturday in the Yellow Jackets’ 33-21 win over Virginia.

The Tampa, Fla. native, who eclipsed 1,000 yards for his two-year Tech career, had the second-most rushing yards in the Paul Johnson era. He helped the Yellow Jackets pile up 477 yards on the ground, which is the sixth-highest mark in conference history, and the most since 1981.

Allen has five career touchdowns in two games against the Cavaliers.
