  • The Paul Hornung Award, presented by Texas Roadhouse, is awarded annually to the most versatile player in major college football. The winner and his family will be honored in late January 2015 at a banquet presented by KentuckyOne Health at the Galt House Hotel and Suites in downtown Louisville.

    Georgia’s Brandon Boykin won the Hornung Award in 2011.

    Gurley set a school record that had stood since 1987 with 293 all-purpose yards, while scoring four touchdowns to help the Bulldogs take down the No. 16 Tigers. It was his 14th career 100-yard rushing game with a career-high 198 yards and three scores on just 15 carries, including a 51-yard touchdown on his final carry. Gurley also scored a touchdown on a 100-yard kickoff return in the second quarter.

    The other players on this week’s Paul Hornung honor roll included UCLA defensive back Ishmael Adams, Stanford wide receiver Ty Montgomery, and Purdue defensive back Frankie Williams.
