Week 2 SEC Players of the Week
LSU running back Leonard Fournette headlined the most recent group of SEC Players of the Week with a dominant performance in the Tigers’ 21-19 win over Mississippi State.
Fournette, who named SEC Offensive Player of the Week, rushed for 159 yards and three touchdowns in the victory and was clearly the difference maker for LSU’s offense.
Other SEC Players of the Week:
Isaiah Mckenzie (punt returner, UGA):
If you were a UGA fan searching for positives in Georgia’s win over Vanderbilt, look no further than McKenzie. His 77-yard punt return for a touchdown silenced the Nashville crowd in the opening quarter.
Ethan Pocic (center, LSU):
Pocic paved the way for Fournette and registered a career-high 16 knockdown blocks. He saw the field on all but one of LSU’s 61 offensive snaps.
Jordan Jenkins (DL, Georgia):
The senior linebacker had a career-high 11 tackles, two sacks and 5.5 tackles for loss. He was a key to the Bulldogs beating Vanderbilt.
Kentrell Brothers (LB, Missouri):
He had two interceptions in the fourth quarter and tied his career-high with 16 tackles for the second week in a row. Need more be said?
Chris Westry (defensive back, Kentucky):
The knock on Westry coming out of high school is he was too tall and skinny. He finished the game with a late interception, had a key pass breakup in the third quarter and recorded a sack in the second quarter among other big plays in Kentucky’s win.
