Bama RB one of SEC players of the week

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - The SEC has named Alabama running back Mark Ingram, Kentucky linebacker Micah Johnson and Florida kicker Caleb Sturgis players of the week.

Ingram rushed for 246 yards in a win over South Carolina, the highest total at Bryant-Denny Stadium and second-most in the FBS this season.

Johnson had 14 tackles in Kentucky's win over Auburn. The Wildcats allowed only 315 yards and one offensive touchdown.

Sturgis hit a game-winning 27-yard field goal in Florida's 23-20 win over Arkansas and a 51-yarder in the third quarter.

Mississippi center Daverin Geralds was the offensive lineman of the week, while Georgia tackle Geno Atkins claimed defensive line honors.

Mississippi State defensive back Corey Broomfield was freshman of the week.
