Maxwell Award Player of the Week: Jarrett Guarantano, Tennessee
The Vols have finally snapped their 11-game SEC losing streak, getting a career day from their sophomore quarterback. And Guarantano didn’t just go 21-of-32 for 328 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also did it against the stout Auburn D… at Jordan-Hare Stadium… to earn Pro Football Focus’ highest quarterback grade of Week 7.
Chuck Bednarik Award Player of the Week: Quinnen Williams, Alabama
With all of the attention the offense has been generating in Tuscaloosa, is anyone taking notice of No. 92 this fall? Williams has been quietly dominating at the point of attack, week-in and week-out. Bama held the potent Mizzou offense to just 10 points, as Williams provided his usual heat from the interior with seven stops, two tackles for loss, a sack and two pressures of QB Drew Lock.
