The SEC has released its top performers from Week 7:

OFFENSE

Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama: Rushed for a career-high 246 yards on 24 carries and a touchdown and also caught two passes for 23 yards in Alabama’s 20-6 win against South Carolina. Ingram's rushing total was the highest ever in a game at Bryant-Denny Stadium and the third most in Alabama history.

DEFENSE

Micah Johnson, LB, Kentucky: Recorded a game-high 14 tackles, eight solo and six assists, in Kentucky’s 21-14 win at Auburn. Johnson was also credited with one tackle for loss (-1 yard). The play came on Auburn’s final drive, on 2nd-and-2, forcing a third-down conversion attempt.

SPECIAL TEAMS

Caleb Sturgis, K, Florida: Kicked the game-winning 27-yard field goal in Florida’s 23-20 win against Arkansas. Also booted a 51-yard field goal in the third quarter, Florida's longest field goal since Matt Leach connected on a 52-yard attempt against Georgia in 2004.

OFFENSIVE LINEMAN

Daverin Geralds, C, Ole Miss: Anchored an offensive line which helped produce 501 yards of total offense in a 48-13 victory over UAB. Geralds was credited with four knock-downs and four finishes, while grading 91 percent in the run game and 95 percent in the passing game.

DEFENSIVE LINEMAN

Geno Atkins, DT, Georgia: Matched his career high with eight tackles, including one tackle for loss, during Georgia’s 34-10 road win over Vanderbilt. Atkins came off the bench to tie for second on the team in tackles against the Commodores.

FRESHMAN

Corey Broomfield, DB, Mississippi State: Recorded five total tackles (all solos) with one for loss (minus-2 yards), two interceptions and a pass deflection in Mississippi State’s 27-6 win at Middle Tennessee. Broomfield’s first pick came early in the fourth quarter, halting an MTSU drive in Mississippi State territory.
