Cord Howard And Ben Anderson Earn ACC Weekly Honors

Nov. 16, 2009

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Georgia Tech senior guard Cord Howard and junior defensive tackle Ben Anderson have been named the Atlantic Coast Conference’s offensive and defensive lineman of the week, respectively, the league office announced this afternoon.

Howard earned his second weekly citation this season as he helped the seventh-ranked Yellow Jackets to a Coastal Division-clinching win at Duke last Saturday. Howard helped anchor an offensive line that cleared space for 519 total yards of offense, including 306 rushing yards in Georgia Tech’s 49-10 win over the Blue Devils. Howard and the Yellow Jacket offensive line have paved the way for 300 or more rushing yards nine times this season, including the last six games in a row — all wins.

Anderson recorded five tackles, three for loss, and two sacks — all career-highs — against Duke. Despite allowing 10 first-quarter points to the Blue Devils, Anderson helped the Yellow Jacket defense blank Duke for the final three stanzas. Additionally, Georgia Tech limited Duke’s high-powered passing attack to just 256 yards and gave up only 25 rushing yards, while the defensive line pressured the Blue Devil offense for four sacks in the game.
