ATHENS, Ga. --- University of Georgia true freshman tailback Todd Gurley has been named the Southeastern Conference Co-Freshman Player of the Week following his performance versus Buffalo, according to a league announcement on Monday.

Alabama tailback T.J. Yeldon split the honor with Gurley.

Gurley, a 6-1, 218-pound native of Tarboro, N.C., rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns on eight carries (12.5 avg.) against the Bulls.  His second career carry was a 10-yard touchdown run while his eighth and final carry resulted in a 55-yard touchdown.  Gurley became the first Bulldog freshman to go over 100 yards rushing in his season-opening debut since Danny Ware versus Georgia Southern in 2004.

Gurley also recorded a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in his collegiate debut.  This ties the school, SEC and NCAA records and is the fourth return of its kind in Bulldog history.  He finished with 227 all-purpose yards and was named the College Football Performance Awards National Kickoff Returner of the Week.

The Bulldogs travel to Columbia, Mo., to take on Missouri on Saturday at 7:45 p.m. ET.  This is the SEC opener for both schools and the first SEC game for the Tigers in history.  The game will be televised by ESPN2.
