It was a pretty good week of football for the SEC this past weekend and there were some pretty dominant performances on the field. Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts and Texas A&M defensive back Justin Evans headlined the conference’s Player of the Week awards announced on Monday.
Hurts had a pretty good game for the Crimson Tide as he was 19-31 with 158 yards and had 146 yards on 18 carries. He helped stage a 24-point comeback against the Ole Miss Rebels.
Evans lined up at safety for the Aggies against the Auburn Tigers. He helped Texas A&M to a 29-16 win, which bolstered the Aggies into the AP top ten, after he recorded 12 tackles, 10 of which were solo.
