Georgia's Aaron Murray named SEC Offensive Player of the Week

A Georgia player won Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week honors Monday. Again.


Quarterback Aaron Murray got the recognition a week after running back Todd Gurley was the pick.

Murray completed 17 of 23 passes for 309 yards and four touchdowns in the 41-30 victory over South Carolina.

• Georgia’s home game against North Texas on Sept. 21 is set for 12:21 p.m. and will be shown on SEC TV.

OHIO STATE: Quarterback Braxton Miller’s status for Saturday’s game at California is still up in the air.

Miller sustained a sprained ligament in his left knee in last weekend’s win over San Diego State.

UCLA: Returned to football practice Monday for the first time since the death of walk-on receiver Nick Pasquale.

The team practiced in preparation for this weekend’s game at No. 23 Nebraska. Pasquale was hit by a car and killed while walking in his hometown of San Clemente on Sunday.

BIG 12: Acknowledged the misapplication of a rule by its officiating crew that led to the ejection of a Southeastern Louisiana player at 24th-ranked Texas Christian.

SLU linebacker Cqulin Hubert was ejected midway through the fourth quarter of the Lions’ 38-17 loss Saturday after being assessed his second unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the game.

The Big 12 said, however, that Hubert’s penalty in the third quarter for participating without a helmet should not have been considered an unsportsmanlike act.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA: Quarterback Cody Kessler will start again this week, and he’s no longer sharing time with Max Wittek.
