Georgia QB Aaron Murray, C Ben Jones Named SEC Players Of The Week

The accolades keep coming for QB Aaron Murray as he was named freshman of the week for the second consecutive week. Murray completed 15 of 24 passes with 287 yards and two touchdowns in the win against Vanderbilt. Also, C Ben Jones was named SEC lineman of the week for grading out at 100 percent on passing plays and 83 percent for the game against Vandy. 


Now the question is can the offense keep it going against a Kentucky team that is coming off an emotional win against South Carolina last week? 


Kentucky is known for surrendering a lot of points, so if Jones and the rest of the offensive line can continue to block well for Murray, they should have another successful night when it comes to scoring points. And if Murray continues to play at the level has not only the last two weeks but all season,  he will be considered the best freshman player in the country.


And to think Murray was the biggest question mark for the offense going into this season.
