Jordan Jenkins has been named defensive line Player of the Week by the Southeastern Conference:

Jordan Jenkins, DL, Georgia
• Lining up with his hand on the ground, Jenkins recorded a career-high and game-high 11 tackles, including two sacks (minus-15 yards) and 5.5 tackles for loss (minus-22 yards).
• He is the SEC active leader with 18 sacks and 35.5 tackles for loss in his career.
• Jenkins also moved to No. 5 on Georgia's all-time list for TFLs.
• Four of his stops came on third down situations and the Hamilton, Ga., native forced fourth downs on all of them.
• Jenkins was the anchor of a Bulldog defense that held the Commodores to just a single touchdown.

Special Teams Player of the Week honors go out to The Human Joystick:

Isaiah McKenzie, PR, Georgia • McKenzie returned his third career punt for a touchdown (first this year) and his fourth career kick return for a score in the opening quarter to put Georgia up 7-0 at Vanderbilt. • His return was for a career-long 77 yards, and he is the SEC's active leader with three punt returns for touchdowns. • McKenzie's punt return touchdown was the longest for the Bulldogs since Brandon Boykin went 92 yards for a score in the 2012 Outback Bowl versus Michigan State. • McKenzie also tallied another pair of first downs for the Bulldogs on Saturday with a 24-yard rush and a 15-yard catch.
