SEC Honor Roll: Week 8Offenses took to the air on Saturday, with quarterbacks such as Georgias Aaron Murray and Alabamas AJ McCarron posting record-setting performances. Mississippi States Tyler Russell also had a strong performance (17 of 21 for 191 yards and three TDs), but couldnt break onto this weeks SEC Honor Roll: High Fives Aaron Murray, Georgia: Murray was more accurate than Hawkeye when Georgia needed him most. He missed only eight of his 38 attempts for a career-high 427 yards and four touchdowns in a 29-24 win over Kentucky. Murray passed David Greene on the career touchdown pass list and enters this weeks game against Florida with 75 career TD throws. Tavarres King, Georgia: Murrays favorite target was King, who caught a career-high nine passes for 188 yards and two TDs. King caught a 66-yard TD pass and a 1-yard score, but the yardage total fell short of his school record of 205 yards receiving, set in the Outback Bowl last season. Kyle Christy, Florida: He already led the SEC in punting and added to it as all seven of his punts traveled more than 50 yards in Saturdays win over South Carolina. He had a career-long 62-yard punt on his way to averaging a school-record 54.3 yards. One punt was fumbled by South Carolina returner Ace Sanders and one was downed at the Gamecocks 5. AJ McCarron, Alabama: Like Murray, McCarron was deadly accurate in shooting down Tennessee. He was 17 of 22 for a career-high 306 yards and tied another career-high with four TD passes. McCarron has thrown 16 TD passes without an interception in 2012. In fact, he hasnt thrown an interception in his past 239 attempts, dating to last year. Kevin Minter, LSU: The leader of LSUs defense, Minter helped hold Texas A&M to 28 points below its season scoring average in the Tigers 24-19 victory. He had 12 tackles, a sack and an interception, broke up a pass and twice pressured Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel, who threw three interceptions. Minter was selected the Walter Camp Football Foundation National Defensive Player of the Week. Disappointment of the Week South Carolina: The Gamecocks were beat up entering their showdown in The Swamp, but were expected to put up more of an effort than they showed in a 44-11 loss. South Carolina had four turnovers, rushed for 36 yards and QBs Connor Shaw and Dylan Thompson completed only 17 of 40 attempts for 155 yards, and were sacked four times. Player of the Week Zac Stacy, Vanderbilt: Sure, Stacy fumbled on his final carry, but that was after he became Vanderbilts top career rusher with his 169 yards on 27 carries in the Commodores 17-13 win over Auburn. His 2-yard TD run gave Vanderbilt a 17-10 third-quarter lead and he finished the game with 2,670 career yards. Coach of the Week Will Muschamp, Florida: Florida fans have forgotten all about last year, when the Gators went 0-for-October on their way to a 7-6 record in Muschamps first season. He had Florida well prepared for South Carolina and has rebuilt the program in 20 games. Muschamp has to do it again this week, when the Gators (7-0) face Georgia on Saturday.
