ATHENS - University of Georgia redshirt sophomore 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, 208-pound native of Belford, N.J., recorded a season-high 168 rushing yards on 18 carries for three touchdowns during Georgia¹s 56-17 rout over Central Michigan. This was Moreno¹s seventh 100-yard rushing game. In addition to averaging 9.3 yards per carry, Moreno also tallied three catches for 30 yards.

This was the second week in a row that Moreno scored three touchdowns and that the Bulldog offense piled up more than 500 yards of total offense.

The No. 2 Bulldogs travel to Columbia, S.C., to face South Carolina in their SEC opener on Saturday, Sept 13.
