Williams Earns Second SEC Offensive Player Of The Week Award
FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – Rawleigh Williams III has become a house hold name when it comes to running backs in the SEC and now he’s making a habit of earning league honors.
The Arkansas running back was named the SEC’s co-offensive player of the week after leading the Razorbacks to a 31-10 win as he rushed for 148 yards and two scores against Florida. Williams capped the blowout win with a 41-yard score to set the final margin.
Williams also earned the honor on Oct. 17 following a 34-30 win over Ole Miss on the previous weekend. Williams is the only player in the SEC to win the award more than once this season and Arkansas is the only team to win it three times as Austin Allen picked up the honor following the win at TCU in week two.
Williams is second in the SEC with 955 yards rushing and has seven touchdowns.
