ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia junior tailback Todd Gurley has been named the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week following his performance in the win over #16 Clemson on Saturday.

This marks Gurley's first Walter Camp honor while quarterback Aaron Murray was a two-tome recipient last year. Former Bulldog All-American linebacker Jarvis Jones garnered the defensive honor three times in his career.

Gurley, a Tarboro, N.C., finished with a school record 293 all-purpose yards (former record 290, Rodney Hampton, 1987) and scored four touchdowns to help down the Tigers 45-21. He finished with his 14th career 100-yard rushing game after going for a career-high 198 yards and three scores on just 15 carries (13.2 average). His final carry was a 51-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter.

Gurley also tied an NCAA record by returning a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown. This marked his second career 100-yard return for a score after he returned one against Buffalo during his first game as a Bulldog versus Buffalo.

Georgia (1-0, 0-0 SEC) has a bye week before traveling to Columbia, S.C., to face South Carolina (0-1, 0-1) on Sept. 13. CBS will televise the game at 3:30 p.m.
