BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – After helping Ole Miss to a 45-14 victory over No. 11 Georgia, sophomore Jordan Sims was named Southeastern Conference Offensive Lineman of the Week by the league office Monday.

The Rebels’ starting right guard helped his team record 510 total yards of offense, the Rebels' second straight game with more than 500 against a nationally ranked SEC foe. Ole Miss converted all four red-zone attempts in the game and have now converted 17 of 18 chances this season. The Rebel line surrendered just one sack against the Bulldogs.

The big win featured the Rebels’ most points and largest margin of victory ever against Georgia. It was also the largest margin of victory against a nationally ranked team since Ole Miss downed No. 3 Tennessee 38-0 in 1969.

Sims, a native of Homewood, Alabama, is the first Rebel to receive an SEC weekly honor this season.

Senior quarterback Chad Kelly pulled in a pair of honors on Monday, as well. He was named to the Davey O’Brien “Great 8” list and was tabbed Honorable Mention National Performer of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards.

Ole Miss is back in action this Saturday at 6 p.m. for its homecoming game vs. Memphis at the newly renovated Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
