Therezie had the first two interceptions of his career to help preserve Auburn's win over Washington State.

Alabama's Jones scored on a 72-yard punt return and a 94-yard kickoff return in a victory over Virginia Tech.

Arkansas' Trey Flowers is defensive lineman of the week and LSU's La'el Collins won offensive line honors. Mississippi receiver Laquon Treadwell was named freshman of the week.
