Georgia football has an abundance of talent on both sides of the ball, and for seven straight weeks, the SEC named at least one Bulldog for the honors they present weekly.
On the season, Georgia has ten total weekly honors this season as Brock Bowers earns his second SEC Freshman of the Week and Jalen Carter earns his first SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week honor.
Carter received the honors after finishing with six tackles against the Wildcats. He also had a sack and 2.5 tackles for loss and was the guy who blocked the extra point at the end of the ballgame.
His sack came during the second quarter when he grabbed Will Levis and forced a fourth down, allowing the Dawgs to head into halftime with some momentum.
Not to mention he was a big reason that Georgia allowed Kentucky to gain four first downs on the ground and average 1.9 yards a rushing play and overall 3.5 yards a play.
On the season, Carter has 11 total tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks. He leads the team with 17 quarterback hurries and has been a crucial part of this dominant defense.
Bowers earned his second SEC Freshman of the Week honors after earning his second 100-yard game of the year. He had five catches for 101 yards and two touchdowns.
He caught a 27-yard touchdown pass for his first score of the game, and it was such a physical catch. Bowers made sure to hold onto it despite having a Kentucky defender right on him and stayed in bounds to make it count.
The second score came in the fourth quarter when he caught a 20-yard touchdown on the run that Stetson Bennett threw flawlessly. He secured the win for the Dawgs and once again showed the world how big of a playmaker he is.
Georgia has exerted its dominance week after week, and the conference is acknowledging it.
Here are how the Dawgs collected their weekly honors since Week 1:
Week 1: Clemson — Jordan Davis (SEC Defensive Lineman); Christopher Smith (SEC Defensive Player)
Week 2: UAB — Stetson Bennett (Offensive Player)
Week 3: South Carolina — Adonai Mitchell (SEC Freshman); Nolan Smith (SEC Defensive Player)
Week 4: Vanderbilt — Brock Bowers (SEC Freshman)
Week 5: Arkansas — Devonte Wyatt (SEC Defensive Lineman)
Week 6: Auburn — Ladd McConkey (SEC Freshman)
Week 7: Kentucky — Brock Bowers (SEC Freshman); Jalen Carter (SEC Defensive Lineman)
It’s incredible to see Georgia honored week-after-week because Dawg fans know how good their players are, so to have the conference acknowledge that too means more.
The Dawgs are taking each week like it’s the last game of the season, and it has paid off so far. Georgia is in their bye week, so they will have two full weeks to rest up and prepare for the showdown in Jacksonville against Florida on Oct. 30th.
