Week 5 is in the books as the SEC season rolls on. This week featured everything from embarrassing blowouts (MIZ!) to heartbreaking, last-second losses (Go Dawgs!). As we do every week, let's take a look at who stood out with our All-SEC.
For the first time, we'll do an update of our year-to-date All-SEC team following the Week 5 results. Remember, the year-to-date team -- see the Week 1 post for a reminder -- accumulates points earned from week-to-week appearances in this (subjective) column. So don't yell at me in the comments if your favorite player has better stat totals than a guy that ranks ahead of him. That's not how this works.
Anyways, on to Week 5:
|Name||Team||Comp.||Att.||Yds.||Comp%||TD||INT||Yds./Att.||Rush||Rush Yds.||Yds./ Rush||Rush TD||Total Yds.||Total TD|
|1st Team||Joshua Dobbs||Tennessee||16||26||230||61.5%||3||1||8.9||9||47||5.2||1||277||4|
|2nd Team||Jalen Hurts||Alabama||20||33||262||60.6%||2||0||7.9||7||38||5.4||0||300||2|
Tennessee probably has no business being 5-0 at this point, but here they are. Their Hail Mary victory over Georgia was the most exciting game of the season so far, and Dobbs' play was a big reason why the Vols were able to pull another rabbit out of the hat.
|Name||Team||Att.||Yds.||Yds. / Att.||TD||Tgt.||Catch||Rec. Yds.||Rec. TD||Yds./ Catch||Yds./ Tgt.||Total Yds.||Total TD||Yds./ Touch|
|1st Team||Derrius Guice||LSU||17||163||9.6||3||2||1||21||0||21.0||10.5||184||3||10.2|
|2nd Team||Eugene Brazley||Ole Miss||13||124||9.5||2||3||3||25||0||8.3||8.3||149||2||9.3|
Guice, filling in for an injured Leonard Fourtnette, made things look easy against Missouri, consistently running the ball down the other Tigers' throats. He's our offensive player of the week.
|Name||Team||Tgt.||Catch||Catch%||Yds.||TD||Yds./ Catch||Yds./ Tgt.||Rush Att.||Rush Yds.||Yds./ Att.||Rush TD||Yds./ Scrim.||TD/ Scrim.||Yds./ Touch|
|1st Team||Calvin Ridley||Alabama||17||11||64.7%||174||2||15.8||10.2||1||6||6.0||0||180||2||15.0|
|2nd Team||Jauan Jennings||Tennessee||4||3||57.1%||71||1||23.7||17.8||0||0||0||0||71||1||23.7|
|Damore'ea Stringfellow||Ole Miss||8||6||75.0%||94||0||15.7||11.8||0||0||0||0||94||0||15.7|
This was not the best week for SEC receivers, but Ridley's monster game helps redeem the group a bit.
|Name||Team||Tgt.||Catch||Catch%||Yds.||TD||Yds. / Catch||Yds. / Tgt.|
|First Team||Isaac Nauta||Georgia||6||5||83.3%||83||1||16.6||13.8|
|Second Team||Evan Engram||Ole Miss||4||4||100%||82||1||20.5||20.5|
I'm going to go out on a limb and say Jacob Eason to Isaac Nauta is going to be a regular thing for the Dawgs over the next three years or so.
|First Team||Derek Barnett||Tennessee||4||2.5||2||0||0||1||0||3.5|
|Marquis Haynes||Ole Miss||5||2||1||0||0||1||0||3|
|Daeshon Hall||Texas A&M||5||3.5||2||0||0||0||0||3.5|
|Second Team||Jonathan Allen||Alabama||7||1||1||0||0||0||0||1|
Barnett has really turned it on the last couple weeks, manhandling the Georgia and Florida offensive lines. He was probably the biggest standout this week, but there were a lot of really nice performances around the league as well. Shoutout to Vandy's Adam Butler, who was spectacular in one of the worst games of the year so far.
|First Team||Jarrad Davis||Florida||12||0||0||3||0||0||0||3|
|Shaan Washington||Texas A&M||9||2||1||0||0||1||0||3|
|Second Team||Natrez Patrick||Georgia||7.5||2.5||1||0||0||0||0||2.5|
This was really an outstanding week for SEC linebackers after a not-so-great performance in Week 4. Shaan Washington is a guy having a great season that not enough people are talking about.
|First Team||Tre'Davious White||LSU||2.5||0||0||3||1||0||0||3|
|Chris Lammons||South Carolina||4||0||0||2||1||0||0||2|
|Second Team||Tony Bridges||Ole Miss||3||1||0||1||0||0||0||2|
Tre'Davious White was awesome against Mizzou on Saturday, shutting down J'Mon Moore, who up to that point was the SEC's leading receiver.
|First Team||Zedrick Woods||Ole Miss||6||1.5||0||4||2||0||1||5.5|
|Second Team||Jamal Adams||LSU||3||0||0||2||0||0||0||2|
|Donovan Wilson||Texas A&M||4||1||0||1||0||0||0||2|
Yes, it came against Memphis, but Woods had as big a game as any SEC defensive back has had all season. Meanwhile, Alabama transfer Maurice Smith has been a huge boon for Kirby Smart's defense, even if they lost against the Vols.
|Name||Team||Made FG||Att. FG||Long||Made XP||Att. XP||Total Pts.|
|First Team||Eddy Pineiro||Florida||2||2||42||1||1||7|
|Second Team||Tommy Openshaw||Vanderbilt||2||2||38||0||0||6|
Kickers were the stars of Florida - Vanderbilt, which tells you all you need to know about that matchup.
|Name||Team||Punt Att.||Yds.||Yds. / Att.||Long|
|First Team||Johnny Townsend||Florida||7||363||51.9||62|
|Second Team||Grant MacGinnis||Kentucky||6||268||44.7||61|
These are the Week 5 punters.
Offensive Player of the Week
Derrius Guice, running back, LSU
Defensive Player of the Week
Dedrick Woods, safety, Ole Miss
And finally, our first year-to-date update for All-SEC. There's beginning to be a little bit of separation at most positions, but it's still early, so your favorite player may well be just a week away from popping up on this list.
