It was the fourth time Norwood, a junior, has gone over 100 yards. His career-high remains a 138-yard effort against Kentucky as a freshman in 2002.
Coach Sylvester Croom was pleased to hear the news Monday morning at his teleconference, but said Norwood could have had an even bigger '04 opener. "Jerious had a big night, but he missed a couple of reads that were out there. He could have gone over 200 yards if he'd hit a couple of holes exactly right, and read the blocking schemes."
Norwood had said the same thing Saturday night after the game. "I could have done better, I missed a couple of reads. And Coach Croom told me to pick my feet up, I could have still been running!"
Norwood is the first Bulldog, other than in special teams, selected SEC POTW since Korey Banks in 2001.
