BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Georgia tailback Todd Gurley and Auburn defensive back Robenson Therezie are the Southeastern Conference offensive and defensive players of the week.

The league also named Alabama return man/receiver Christion Jones as special teams player of the week on Monday.

Gurley ran for a career-high 154 yards and two touchdowns, including a 75-yarder, in a loss to Clemson.

Therezie had the first two interceptions of his career to help preserve Auburn's win over Washington State.

Alabama's Jones scored on a 72-yard punt return and a 94-yard kickoff return in a victory over Virginia Tech.

Arkansas' Trey Flowers is defensive lineman of the week and LSU's La'el Collins won offensive line honors. Mississippi receiver Laquon Treadwell was named freshman of the week.
