Good news first:
Although he was stymied by a lousy offensive line and slick-handed wide receivers, Morgan Newton got a shout out from ESPN in their weekly SEC awards, under the “Other Outstanding Performances” category:
QB Morgan Newton (Kentucky) — Completed 27-of-41 passes for 255 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions against Louisville.
Danny Trevathan also made the list for his 12 tackles, which included a sack, and a forced fumble.
Florida RB Chris Rainey was named Co-Offensive Player of the Week for his 233 all-purpose yards (108 rushing, 104 receiving, 21 on punt returns) in the Gators’ win over Tennessee.
