The first week of SEC football is finished, and several players and teams shined.
The following players showed out a little more than the rest, as each earned SEC Player of the Week honors for their respective category.
Check out the honors below.
Offensive: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
- Chubb didn’t look like a running back coming off a serious knee injury on Saturday when he ran for 222 yards and two touchdowns against North Carolina. Chubb’s workload was not limited either with the junior back collecting 32 carries. It was his third 200-yard rushing performance and 14th 100-yard game of his career.
Defense: Jonathan Allen, DL, Alabama
- Allen picked up four tackles and two sacks in Alabama’s rout of Southern Cal over the weekend. The defensive lineman also knocked two balls down at the line of scrimmage.
Special teams: Elliot Fry, K, South Carolina
- Fry went 2-for-2 this week on his field goals, including a career-long 55-yarder in the final minutes to give the Gamecocks a 13-10 win over Vanderbilt. He accounted for seven of South Carolina’s 13 points.
Freshman: Jonah Williams, OL, Alabama
- Williams became the second true freshman to start for Alabama at tackle under Nick Saban. He recorded two knockdown blocks and graded out an 85 percent.
Offensive line: Erik McCoy, C, Texas A&M
- In his first career start, McCoy helped lead Texas A&M past UCLA, while preventing quarterback Trevor Knight from getting sacked all game. The Aggies rushed for 203 yards and three touchdowns.
Defensive line: Deatrich Wise, DE, Arkansas
- Wise accumulated seven tackles on Saturday, while also picking up a half sack. He’s now earned at least a half sack in his last five regular season games.
