Three Georgia Bulldogs were honored with weekly awards in the SEC for their performances in the team's victory over Tennessee last weekend.
The Georgia Bulldogs are coming off an impressive 51-44 victory over the Tennessee Volunteers last weekend. The win brings them to 5-0 on the season, and three Bulldog players were given SEC player of the week honors for their performances in the win.
Tailbacks Keith Marshall and Todd Gurley were named SEC freshmen of the week. Marshall carried the ball 10 times against the Volunteers and rushed for 164 yards and two touchdowns. Gurley had 24 carries and racked up 130 yards and three touchdowns.
Senior defensive back Sanders Commings was named the co-defensive player of the week in the SEC. Commings had five tackles against the Volunteers on Saturday -- four of those solo -- while also making two interceptions in the game. His last pick was the biggest as it came with seven seconds left in regulation and sealed the victory for Georgia.
The Bulldogs are preparing to take on the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday, with the winner giving itself an advantage in the SEC Division race.
