Here are the top 14 candidates for SEC Offensive Player of the Year honors entering Week 12.
1. Matt Corral, QB, Ole Miss: Corral and the Rebels have been banged up, but he's hung tough and the team's 8-2 because of that.
2. Bryce Young, QB, Alabama: It was just New Mexico State, but going 21-of-23 for 270 yards, five touchdowns and no picks against any FBS team is impressive.
3. Will Rogers, QB, Mississippi State: Has thrown for at least 294 yards in every game; just one pick in the last three weeks.
4. Tyler Badie, RB, Missouri: Four 200-yard rushing games this year and had at least one TD in each.
5. Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama: He's had at least 123 yards receiving in four of his last five games; just a nightmare to contain in the open field.
6. KJ Jefferson, QB, Arkansas: Eight touchdowns and no picks the last four games.
7. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas: Had just 21 yards of total offense vs. LSU, snapping a streak of four games over 100 yards.
8. Devon Achane, RB, Texas A&M: He's on the field less than his teammate below, but he's averaging far more per touch (7.9 vs. 6.0).
9. Isaiah Spiller, RB, Texas A&M: Had 15 carries for 41 yards vs. Ole Miss, snapping a string of three 100-yard games.
10. Evan Neal, LT, Alabama: Hasn't allowed a sack this season, according to PFF.com.
11. Charlie Cross, LT, Mississippi State: Has allowed just two sacks all year, according to PFF.com.
12. Hendon Hooker, QB, Tennessee: Had a very respectable passing outing (24-for-37, 244 yards, one TD, one pick) vs. Georgia.
13. Brian Robinson, RB, Alabama: Got back on track (14 touches, 135 yards from scrimmage) against an awful New Mexico State team after a down week vs. LSU.
14. Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia: Usage has faded as a receiver, but he's still the league's best pass-catching tight end (30-516-6).
