Tenth-ranked Georgia's home game against Kentucky on Nov. 17 will be televised by Lincoln Financial Sports and have a 12:30 p.m. kickoff., the schools announced Monday.

Lincoln Financial airs on CBS--Ch. 12 in Augusta. The only other Southeastern Conference game on TV will be LSU-Mississippi on CBS at 3:30.

The Bulldogs (7-2, 4-2 SEC) beat Troy 44-34 last weekend. They face No. 18 Auburn at Sanford Stadium on Saturday. That game will be on CBS and is slated for 3:30.

SEC HONORS: Arkansas tailback Darren McFadden , whose 321 rushing yards against South Carolina tied the conference record, was named league Offensive Player of the Week.

LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey won Defensive Player of the Week while Alabama return man Javier Arenas claimed special teams honors.

McFadden had 34 for carries in a 48-36 win over then-No. 23 South Carolina, rushing for a touchdown and passing for another.

Georgia tailback Knowshon Moreno was the Freshman of the Week after rushing for a career-high 196 yards and three touchdowns against Troy.

NEBRASKA: Coach Bill Callahan sidestepped questions about his future, saying he's focused on preparing to play Kansas State on Saturday.

Callahan, whose team has lost five in a row, declined to say whether he has been asked to resign with the promise of a settlement.

If he's fired at the end of the season, Callahan's contract calls for Nebraska to pay him more than $3 million.

Interim athletic director Tom Osborne has said he won't make a decision on Callahan until after the season.

TEXAS: Senior center Dallas Griffin will miss the rest of the season after tearing a ligament in his right knee.

Griffin tore the anterior cruciate ligament Saturday in the first half of Texas' 38-35 win over Oklahoma State, coach Mack Brown said. The Longhorns rallied with 24 points in the fourth quarter.
