Wilson and Wright Share SEC Offensive Player of the Week Title
The SEC announced their weekly players of the week this morning and Tyler Wilson and Jarius Wright share this weeks top offensive player spot.
Wilson took a pounding thanks for poor offensive line play, but ended up completing 30-of-51 passes for 510 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. The 510 yards passing set a single game school passing record at Arkansas, was the fifth-highest total in SEC history and was the most of any player in the nation this season.
Jarius had a record setting day as well, pulling in a school record 281 receiving yards and tying the school-record with 13 receptions. Wright’s receiving yardage total is the second-highest in SEC history and his average per catch (21.6) is the second-highest in league history. His 281 yards receiving is the second-highest total in the nation this season and the 13 catches are most in the SEC this season. (Maybe next time ESPN broadcasts an Arkansas game, they’ll get his name right!)
Another Razorback, Corner Back TEVIN MITCHELL, also received notable mention this week for his career-high 13 tackles (including nine solos) and fumble recovery.
Way to go Hogs!
