Atkins anchored a defensive front that held Vanderbilt under 300 yards of total offense and shut the Commodores out during the first and fourth quarters.
This is Atkins’ first weekly conference award since the 2007 season. Redshirt sophomore defensive end Justin Houston was named the SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week following his performance against Arizona State earlier this season.
