NASHVILLE, Tenn. — After making the game-winning field goal at Colorado State on Sept. 11, Vanderbilt kicker Joseph Bulovas has been named Special Teams Player of the Week by the Southeastern Conference.
Bulovas connected from 38 yards out with 19 seconds remaining to give the Commodores a 24-21 victory. The fifth-year senior from Mandeville, Louisiana, was also a perfect 3-for-3 on point-after attempts.
The game-winner capped a rally from a 14-point deficit to give head coach Clark Lea his first victory at the helm of the Vanderbilt program.
Bulovas collects Vanderbilt’s first conference player of the week honors in 2021. The last Commodore to earn a weekly award was kicker Sarah Fuller who was named Special Teams Player of the Week on Nov. 30 after becoming the first woman to take the field in a Power 5 football game.
The Commodores return to action Saturday when Stanford visits Nashville for the first-ever meeting between the programs. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. CT on ESPNU.
