SEC Players of the Week

The SEC league office has announced its top performers from Week 3:


Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett: His 40-yard touchdown pass to Greg Childs in the final seconds lifted the Hogs to a 31-24 win on the road at Georgia. Mallett finished 21-of-33 for 380 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.


Auburn linebacker Josh Bynes: A big part of an Auburn defensive effort that held Clemson to 147 yards after halftime, Bynes finished with 11 total tackles, including two for loss. He also had a pass deflection.


LSU place-kicker Josh Jasper: His five field goals in the 29-7 win against Mississippi State set an LSU single-game record. Jasper connected from 51, 44, 37, 32 and 21 yards. He's now made his past seven field-goal attempts without a miss.


Vanderbilt tackle Wesley Johnson: The first-year starting left tackle contributed six knockdown blocks and played every snap. Johnson had key blocks on Warren Norman's 80-yard touchdown run and Zac Stacy's 35-yard touchdown run.


LSU tackle Drake Nevis: For the second straight week, Nevis is the recipient of this award. He had a career-high nine tackles, including 1.5 tackles for loss, and also intercepted a pass that led to an LSU touchdown.


Florida linebacker Jelani Jenkins: He matched his career high with six total tackles, including his first career sack in the 31-17 win against Tennessee. For the season, Jenkins has 15 total tackles, ranking him third among all SEC freshmen.
