Georgia Bulldogs free safety Bacarri Rambo was named SEC co-defensive player of the week for his performance in Saturday's 42-10 victory over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Rambo split those honors with South Carolina Gamecocks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. Rambo was also named National Defensive Performer of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards.

Against the Yellow Jackets, Rambo recorded eight tackles, forced two fumbles, one of which he returned for 49 yards, and an interception. That tied him for the school record for interceptions with former Bulldog All-American Jake Scott with 16 interceptions.

Rambo also put himself at No. 3 in school history with interception return yards at 293. Scott also holds the school record in that category with 315. The Bulldogs next play in the SEC Championship Game against the Alabama Crimson Tide at the Georgia Dome. Kickoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. and the game will be televised on CBS.
