Maxwell Player of the Week - Kerryon Johnson, Auburn
Johnson was an absolute workhorse in Auburn's upset win over top-ranked Georgia on Saturday. He carried the ball 32 times racking up 167 yards on the ground. He punctuated his performance with two receptions including a 55-yard touchdown grab. He will look to continue his dominance this Saturday as the Tigers play host to Louisiana-Monroe.
