ATHENS - University of Georgia freshman tailback Knowshon Moreno has been named the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week, according to an announcement by the league office on Monday.

Moreno, a 5-11, 207-pound native of Belford, N.J., tallied career highs of 188 rushing yards on 33 carries for three touchdowns during Georgia¹s 42-30 win over No. 9 Florida in Jacksonville. In addition to averaging 5.7 yards per carry, Moreno also registered a pair of catches for 17 yards.

Moreno¹s rushing total was the most for a Bulldog since Verron Haynes recorded 207 yards against Georgia Tech in 2001. It was Moreno¹s third career game going over 100 yards and his second in a row after racking up 157 yards during Georgia¹s 20-17 win over Vanderbilt. Moreno moved to the No. 4 spot on the school¹s all-time list for rushing yards for a freshman with 807.

Through eight games, Moreno is third in the league and is third best out of the nation¹s freshmen with an average of 100.9 yards per game. Moreno has already been named the SEC Freshman of the Week twice during the 2007 season.
