Devonte Wyatt has been named the SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week

Georgia senior Devonte Wyatt has been named the Southeastern Conference Defensive Lineman of the Week following the Bulldogs’ 37-0 shutout of No. 8 Arkansas, according to a league announcement.

This marks the seventh weekly honor for the Bulldogs this season and the first for Wyatt.  Freshman TE Brock Bowers (Freshman) garnered an award after the Vanderbilt win while junior ILB Nolan Smith (Defensive Player) and WR Adonai Mitchell (Freshman) earned honors following the victory over South Carolina. 





In the win over UAB, senior QB Stetson Bennett (Offensive Player) garnered an SEC honor.  Senior S Christopher Smith (Defensive Player) and senior N Jordan Davis (Defensive Lineman) collected a pair of conference accolades after the season-opening victory over No. 3 Clemson.

Wyatt, a native of Decatur, Ga., posted a team-high six stops, including 1.5 sacks, and forced a fumble during Georgia’s top-10 win over the Razorbacks.  His forced fumble came on an Arkansas drive that finished with a missed field goal.  Wyatt was the centerpiece of a defensive front that allowed only 162 total yards and just nine first downs as the Bulldogs pushed their start to 5-0.

The No. 2 Bulldogs (5-0, 3-0 SEC) travel to Auburn, Ala., to play No. 18 Auburn (4-1, 1-0) on Saturday.  CBS will televise the matchup at 3:30 p.m. ET.
