Georgia Bulldogs' linebacker Jarvis Jones was named SEC Defensive Player of the Week on Monday for his performance against the Florida Gators on Saturday. In that game, Jones recorded 13 tackles, 4.5 of them for loss. He also recorded three sacks, forced two fumbles and recovered two fumbles.

Over the last two seasons, Jones has recorded 22 sacks in 20 games, seven of those sacks have come against the Gators. He was also the catalyst for the defense that held the Gators to no offensive touchdowns and six turnovers. The Gators had only turned the ball over four times the entire season before Saturday's game.

The Bulldogs now only need to win their final two SEC games to clinch a spot in the SEC Championship Game. Next up, they play the Mississippi Rebels in Athens, Ga. this Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. and the game will be televised on CBS.
