TexAgs All-SEC Team of the Week: Week 10

December 2, 2020
1,539

Alabama, Texas A&M, Missouri, Florida and Georgia all posted lopsided football victories last week.

In fact, the average margin of victory in their wins was 27.2 points. That kind of dominance does not occur without great individual efforts.

Therefore, it’s no surprise that those teams are well represented on the All-SEC team of the week.

Offense

Quarterback: Mac Jones (Alabama)

Jones, a junior, threw for 302 yards and a career-high five touchdowns in the Tide’s Iron Bowl rout of Auburn. He averaged 16.8 yards on his 18 completions.

Lia Musgrave, TexAgs
Leal played a big role in limiting the Bayou Bengals to just 36 yards on the ground.

Barmore, a sophomore, had four tackles, a sack and a quarterback hurry for the Tide in the Iron Bowl win. Leal, a sophomore from Converse Judson, was a big presence up front in the Aggies’ victory. He had seven tackles, a tackle for loss and two quarterback hurries as A&M limited LSU to 267 total yards and 2-of-16 on third down. Slaton, a 356-pound senior who was a five-star offensive lineman in high school, had seven tackles, including a stop for a loss, in Florida’s win. The Gators held Kentucky to 221 total yards, and UK was 2-of-13 on third down.

Linebacker: Nick Bolton (Missouri), James Houston (Florida), Buddy Johnson (Texas A&M) and Quay Walker (Georgia)

Bolton, a junior from Frisco Lone Star, had nine tackles, a sack, another tackle for loss and a pass breakup in Mizzou’s victory over Vandy. Houston, a junior who is a backup, had probably the best game of his career, finishing with a team-high eight tackles and 2.5 tackles for loss in Florida’s win. Johnson, a senior from Dallas Kimball, had a team-high nine tackles, a pass breakup and a pick-six in the Aggies’ dominant defensive performance against LSU.
