“Todd might not say it as much, but Todd deserves it," Georgia offensive tackle John Theus said. "Todd’s the best player in the country. If we can give him some holes, even if we don’t give him some holes, he makes stuff happen. We want to help as much as we can to reach that Heisman. …That’s something I can say for the rest of my life that I blocked for a Heisman winner.”
Gurley was named Monday to the Paul Hornung Award weekly honor for third time. The award goes to the nation’s most versatile player.
Gurley accounted for 187 all-purpose yards against Vanderbilt (163 rushing, 24 receiving) and rushed for two touchdowns. He also completed a 50-yard pass on his first attempt at Georgia.
