Auburn defeated their second straight conference opponent by more than 35 points Saturday night, when the Tigers rolled over Mississippi State, 49-10 at Jordan-Hare Stadium, to move to 2-0 in league play. Two of Auburn's main contributors in the win were recognized by the Southeastern Conference office Monday.
Quarterback Jarrett Stidham and Defensive Lineman Nick Coe earned All-SEC weekly honors for their role in their team's victory over the Bulldogs. Stidham shared SEC offensive player of the week with Georgia's Nick Chubb, and Coe was named SEC Freshman of the Week, alongside Florida's Malik Davis.
Stidham had a solid day passing against Mississippi State, connecting on four passes of longer than 47 yards, including a 47-yard touchdown pass to Wide Receiver Will Hastings in the 2nd quarter.
Over the last three games, Stidham has completed 82.8% of his passes for 846 yards and three touchdowns.

Freshman Nick Coe was also recognized for his career day against Mississippi State. The defensive lineman led his unit with six tackles on Saturday, and also recorded four quarterback hurries. Though five games, Coe has 14 tackles, including eight solo, which is 11th best on the team.
Stidham and Coe join Marlon Davidson by being recognized as player of the week by the Southeastern Conference. Davidson was named defensive lineman of the week after picking up four tackles and recovering a fumble in Auburn's 51-14 win at Missouri in week four.
