The Southeastern Conference announced their selections for Players of the Week on Monday for week 9, and two Auburn Tigers made the cut. Running Back Kamryn Pettway and Kicker Daniel Carlson earned Player of the Week honors for their respective positions by the league office on Monday. Pettway rushed 236 of Auburn’s 307 rushing yards on Saturday night against Ole Miss, which was a career high. The Ole Miss game was also the third consecutive game this that Pettway rushed for over 150 yards. That stat puts Pettway in the Auburn history books, as he is the first running back since Carnell Williams in 2003 to rush for over 150 yards in three straight games. With 933 yards of rushing, Pettway is now the SEC’s leading rusher. He averages 156.2 Yards Per Game and has seven touchdowns. Carlson also played a big role in Auburn’s win over Ole Miss. Carlson was 4-4 in field goal attempts with a long of 47-yards. He leads the SEC with 90 points scored this season, as he is 17-18 on the season, and is a perfect 30-30 in point after tries. This is the third time this season that Carlson has been named conference player of the week. Auburn returns to Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday, when they face Vanderbilt at 11 A.M.
