Offensive - Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams - The Razorbacks seems to have their next big one-two punch at running back. Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams rushed for 357 yards and 6 touchdowns against Texas Tech on Saturday. Collins rushed for 212 yards on 27 carries. His long of the day was an 84 yard touchdown. Williams bruised his way into the end zone four times, 6, 12, 13 and 6 yards. Behind a bruising offensive line, Razorback fans hope for Collins and Williams to be the next Mcffaden and Jones; a scary combination for the rest of the SEC. If Collins and Williams continue to run like wild hogs, Arkansas will no longer be a team to mess around with.
Defensive - Benardrick Mc - Golson had only two tackles on Saturday against the Ragin’ Cajuns. However Golson’s two interceptions are what gives him the title of SEC defensive player of the week. Golson returned one interception for a touchdown putting him in the running for the Deion Sanders award. Alas, Oklahoma’s Julian Wilson won that award and Golson only takes home conference player of the week honors. The Ole Miss defense is becoming elite. Filled with vicious tacklers fast athletes and students of the game Golson and the rest of the Rebel defense are making names for themselves.
Special Teams - Kyle Christy - Kyle Christie The Gator Punter booted 6 punts against Kentucky on Saturday averaging 48 yards per punt. Four of his punts went 50+yards and 4 punts landed inside of the 20. Christie has become a special teams weapon and will continue to make an impact in field position.
Gator fans hope that they will go back to seeing Andre Debose as the special teams player of the week and not their punter. However, I'm sure Christy will have his opportunities against a very good Alabama defense.
