UGA’s Gurley named SEC Freshman of the Week

If Georgia’s Todd Gurley keeps this up, there could be several more Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week honors coming his way.

The tailback was announced as the recipient of the award Monday for the second time this season (he shared co-honors after the Buffalo game) after rushing for 130 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday.

Gurley leads the SEC in rushing (101.5 yards per game), scoring (10.5 points per game) and all-purpose yardage (164.2 yards per game).

“We got a pretty good taste of what he was going to look like,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said. “I’ll just say we were really looking forward to seeing what he was going to do in a real game. You get into a game in terms of getting your blood flowing. When it’s your first scrimmage in your college career, I’m sure there’s a lot of adrenaline flowing then.”
