Posted: Updated:

Tre Mason's stat line stood out from the rest.

The Auburn running back is the SEC Offensive Player of the Week after he rushed for 168 yards and four touchdowns in the Tigers 35-17 win over Arkansas.

Mason is the first Auburn player to rush for four touchdowns in a game since Cam Newton did it against Kentucky in 2010.

Auburn leads the SEC with 306.2 yards rushing a game and is tied for the league lead with 28 touchdowns on the ground. Mason has scored almost half of those, with 13 rushing touchdowns and 921 yards this season.

He's averaging 117.8 yards rushing in five SEC games.

Auburn plays at Tennessee this Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 11 a.m. at Neyland Stadium.
