Green tabbed by SEC

A.J. Green is this week's SEC Freshman of the Week following his performance in the Bulldogs' 17-13 win at Auburn Saturday afternoon.

The Summerville, S.C. native caught a team-high five passes for 81 yards and touchdown as Georgia won to improve to 9-2 on the year.
His touchdown catch, a 17-yarder from quarterback Matthew Stafford, was the game-winner for the Bulldogs and came with 8:24 left in the game.

Green leads the SEC with 51 catches for 887 yards (80.6 yards per game) and seven touchdowns.

He is only 113 yards away from becoming only the second Bulldog receiver in history to have 1,000 yards receiving in one season.

Terrance Edwards caught 59 passes for a school-record 1,004 yards and 11 touchdowns his senior year.
