ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia senior quarterback Aaron Murray has been named the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week following the Bulldogs’ 41-30 win over sixth-ranked South Carolina, according to a league announcement on Monday.

This marks the second week in a row that a Bulldog has won Offensive Player of the Week honors.  Sophomore tailback Todd Gurley was last week’s winner.

Murray, who was also named’s National Performer of the Week, was honored as the league’s Player of the Week twice last season and twice as the Freshman of the Week in 2010.

Murray, a native of Tampa, Fla., shredded the Gamecocks on 17-of-23 passing (74 percent) for 309 yards and four touchdowns.  He finished with a 244.2 pass efficiency mark.

This was the ninth time in his career that Murray has had at least four passing touchdowns in a game.  He connected with eight different receivers, including first-time starter Justin Scott-Wesley who hauled in a career-long 85-yard touchdown to put Georgia up by 11 points in the fourth quarter.

Murray moved to No. 2 on the school's all-time list for total offense with 10,907 yards in his career.

The 10th-ranked Bulldogs (1-1, 1-0 SEC) host North Texas (1-1, 0-0 Conference USA)  on Sept. 21 in Sanford Stadium.  Georgia has a bye week this week.
