ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia senior quarterback Joe Cox has been named the Walter Camp Football Foundation National Offensive Player of the Week following his performance versus Arkansas, according to an announcement on Sunday.

Cox, a native of Charlotte, N.C., completed 18-of-25 passes (72 percent) for a career-high 375 yards and tied a school record with five touchdown passes.  He led the 21st-ranked Bulldogs to a 52-41 win on the road over the Razorbacks in Fayetteville, Ark.

Cox now joins Matthew Stafford (Georgia Tech, 2008), D.J. Shockley (Boise State, 2005) and David Greene (LSU, 2004) as the only Georgia quarterbacks to have five touchdown passes in a single game.  For the year, Cox is 50-of-79 for 738 yards and has eight touchdowns and only three interceptions.

Cox connected on scoring plays of 21, 25, 50, 44 and 28 yards as Georgia improved to 2-1, 2-0 in the Southeastern Conference.

The Bulldogs return to action against Arizona State in Athens on Saturday, Sept. 26.  Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. and the game will be shown on ESPNU.
