Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray shared the SEC Offensive Player of the Week award with Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray following Murray's 384 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 37-10 win against Ole Miss. Bray passed for 530 yards and connected on five touchdowns in leading Tennessee to a 55-48 win against Troy.

This is Murray's second time winning the award this season. Murray was the Offensive Player of the Week after the Bulldogs defeated Kentucky.

Murray's worst game this season came in UGA's only loss to South Carolina, when the senior completed just 35 percent of his passes, threw an interception and no touchdowns. It was an off day for the Bulldogs.

For the season, Murray has thrown for 2,448 yards, 21 touchdowns compared to seven interceptions and is completing close to 65 percent of his passes.

Georgia completes its SEC schedule against Auburn next Saturday, looking to advance to the SEC title game.
