The home office of the Southeastern Conference has announced its weekly player awards for week five. As reported by ESPN's Chris Lowe and available at, they are:


Charles Scott, RB, LSU: Rushed for a season-high 95 yards on 19 carries and scored two touchdowns, including the game-winner on a 33-yard run to beat Georgia 20-13.


Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama: Recorded a game-high 12 tackles in Alabama's 38-20 win over Kentucky and had a hand in three turnovers that led to 17 points for the Crimson Tide. His forced fumble led to a 45-yard return for a touchdown by Courtney Upshaw, and McClain also intercepted a pass and deflected a pass.


Wes Byrum, PK, Auburn: Accounted for 14 of Auburn's points, four field goals and two extra points, in the Tigers' 26-22 win at Tennessee. His four field goals were a career high and the most for an Auburn kicker since 2004.
