UT's Scott gets SEC honor

Tennessee's Chris Scott was named SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week after grading the best for a Vols offensive line that played a key role in Saturday's 35-3 victory over UAB.

Tennessee finished with 548 yards of total offense – the program's best total in 24 games – and now leads the SEC in total offense with an average of 457.0. UT passed for 282 yards and rushed for 266 against the Blazers.

A junior from Riverdale, Ga., Scott earned his first career player of the week nod and the Vols first this season. The 6-5, 310-pounder has started 16 consecutive games on the offensive line dating to the opener of his sophomore campaign.

Other players named by the SEC this week were Kentucky quarterback Mike Hartline (offense), Georgia linebacker Rennie Curran (defense), LSU return specialist Trindon Holliday (special teams), Mississippi State's Jessie Bowman (defensive line) and Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones (freshman).
