University of Cincinnati placekicker Tony Miliano (Cincinnati, Ohio/Elder) has been named the National Placekicker of the Week by the The College Football Performance Awards for the 10th week of the season.
Miliano tied the UC single-game record and set a career best with four field goals made in UC's 26-23 come-from-behind win at Pittsburgh Saturday. He made kicks of 27, 40, 32 and 41 yards, the eighth time in school history a kicker has hit four field goals in a game and the first time since Jacob Rogers did it in 2009 at Connecticut. It was Miliano's second career multiple field goal game.
The purpose of the College Football Performance Awards is to provide the most scientifically rigorous conferments in college football. Recipients are selected exclusively based upon objective scientific rankings of the extent to which individual players increase the overall effectiveness of their teams.
No. 23/18 Cincinnati (7-1, 3-0 BIG EAST Conference) returns to action Saturday against West Virgnia. The game is set for a noon kickoff at Paul Brown Stadium. The game will be televised nationally by ABC and will be broadcast on 700 WLW.
