The SEC honored 10 men, led by quarterbacks Bo Nix (Auburn) and Will Rogers (Mississippi State) for various Player of the Week honors on Monday.
Nix threw for 255 yards and ran for 74 in leading the Tigers to a win at LSU, while Rogers' 408 passing yards led MSU to an upset at then-No. 15 Texas A&M.
On offense, the league also honored Alabama running back Brian Robinson, who ran for a career-high 171 yards and four touchdowns in 'Bama's win over Ole Miss. The league also honored a pair of freshmen running backs in Tennessee's Len'Neth Whitehead (86 all-purpose yards) and Auburn's Jarquez Hunter (65 rushing yards and the game-winning score).
Whiteheads' teammate, Cade Mays, was also honored as the league's Offensive Lineman of the Week.
On defense, the league honored a pair of linemen in Georgia's Devonte Wyatt and Kentucky's Josh Paschal. Wyatt had six tackles and a forced fumble, while Paschal blocked a kick that was returned for a touchdown while making seven tackles (2.5 for loss).
Linebackers Jacquez Jones (Kentucky) and Will Anderson (Alabama) were also honored, as each registered nine tackles.
Finally, Vanderbilt kicker Joseph Bulovas was again honored on special teams as he booted three field goals, including his second game-winning field goal this season in VU's 30-28 win over Connecticut.
