Bray earns SEC Offensive Player of the Week

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray and Alabama safety Mark Barron are the Southeastern Conference offensive and defensive players of the week.

The league also named South Carolina's Melvin Ingram special teams player of the week Monday.

Bray threw for 405 yards and four touchdowns and was 34-of-41 passing in the Volunteers' win over Cincinnati. Barron had seven tackles, an interception and a fumble recovery in a win at Penn State.

Ingram, a defensive end, took a direct snap on a fake punt and rambled 68 yards for a touchdown. He also caught an onside kick to seal South Carolina's win at Georgia.

Top lineman honors went to Arkansas guard Alvin Bailey, and Vanderbilt defensive tackle Rob Lohr. Tailbacks Isaiah Crowell of Georgia and Josh Clemson of Kentucky are co-freshmen of the week.
