Bulldog Duo Awarded SEC Weekly Football Honors

ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia junior quarterback Carson Beck and true freshman place-kicker Peyton Woodring have earned Southeastern Conference weekly honors following the Bulldogs’ 51-13 rout of No. 20 Kentucky, according to a league announcement Monday. Beck, a native of Jacksonville, Fla., has been named the SEC Co-Offensive Player of the Week for the first time while while Woodring, a native of Lafayette, La., has garnered his second straight SEC Co-Freshman Player of the Week honor in his career. Woodring is splitting this week’s award with Florida receiver Arlis Boardingham and Beck is splitting his with LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels. This marks the fourth and fifth SEC weekly honors for the Bulldogs this season. Junior center Sedrick Van Pran was named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week on Sept. 18 for Georgia’s first weekly honor this season. Junior linebacker Smael Mondon (Defensive Player) and Woodring (Freshman) earned the honors after the road win over Auburn. Georgia’s last SEC Offensive Player of the Week honor came after Stetson Bennett earned it following the win over No. 1 Tennessee last year. Beck scorched the Wildcats for career highs in completions (28) on 35 attempts and with 389 yards and four touchdowns. He connected on his first 13 passes (158 yards, two touchdowns), which ranks third in school history. Beck became the first Bulldog quarterback since 2013 (Aaron Murray) to have three consecutive 300+ yard passing games. He spurred the offense to tally 608 total yards (first 600-plus yard game for UGA since 2020) on the way to top-ranked Georgia’s sixth win in a row this season. Woodring scored a career-high 15 points after drilling all three of his field goals, including a career-long 42 yarder, and going 6-for-6 on PATs during Georgia’s victory. Woodring becomes the Bulldogs’ first two-time winner of this award in a season since Brock Bowers in 2021. The last Georgia player to win this award in back-to-back weeks was Nick Chubb in 2014. In fact, Chubb won the award in consecutive weeks following wins over Vanderbilt and Missouri before collecting the honor three straight weeks after wins over Kentucky, Auburn and Charleston Southern. The No. 1 Bulldogs (6-0, 3-0 SEC) travel to Nashville, Tenn., to face Vanderbilt (2-4, 0-3) in FirstBank Stadium on Saturday. CBS will televise the matchup at 12 p.m. ET. ###
