SEC Honors Bennett, Mouzon, Jones

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Vanderbilt receiver Earl Bennett, Mississippi defensive back Dustin Mouzon and Arkansas return man Felix Jones won the Southeastern Conference's player of the week honors Monday.

Bennett caught 13 passes for a school-record 223 yards and three touchdowns in Vanderbilt's 41-17 win over Richmond to claim offensive honors.

It was the most catches by an SEC player in an opening game.

Mouzon had two interceptions, recovered a fumble and made nine tackles in the Rebels' 23-21 win at Memphis.

He returned one pick 99 yards for a touchdown late in the second to give Ole Miss a 23-0 lead. It was the longest interception return in the S-E-C since 2003 and the longest at Ole Miss since 1962.

Jones, meanwhile, won special teams honors after returning a kick 90 yards for a touchdown in Arkansas' 46-26 win against Troy.

Georgia center Fernando Velasco was named SEC offensive lineman of the week and Auburn end Quentin Groves earned defensive line honors.

Alabama tailback Terry Grant was the S-E-C freshman of the week.
