Gurley SEC top freshman
It hasn't taken freshman running back Todd Gurley to make a name for himself on the collegiate football scene.
Monday, the North Carolina native picked up his second big award in the past month after being named the Southeastern Conference Freshman Player of the Week following his performance versus Vanderbilt.
Gurley turned in his third 100-yard game in four contests after carrying the ball for a career-high 130 yards (8.1 average) and two touchdowns in the Bulldogs; 48-3 rout of Vanderbilt.
He also caught a pass for 13 yards.
So far, Gurley tops the SEC in rushing (101.5 yards per game), scoring (10.5 points per game) and all-purpose yards (164.2 yards per game).
Gurley had already been named the SEC Co-Freshman of the Week after the Bulldogs' win over Buffalo in the season opener.
