This and that: Tennessee game time, Davis honor, etc.

ATHENS - Georgia will have to wait until Sunday to find out what time its game at Tennessee will kick off.

CBS has decided to wait on this weekend's results before making a decision on what SEC game to feature on Oct. 5. So the network invoked its six-day window on Monday, and will choose between Georgia at Tennessee, Ole Miss at Auburn and Arkansas at Florida.

Put another way, the network wants to see how No. 9 Georgia fares against No. 6 LSU (which will be on CBS), and how No. 21 Ole Miss does at No. 1 Alabama.

Whichever game CBS does not select will kick off at 7 p.m. on one of the ESPN networks. (ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU). LSU's game at Mississippi State will also be one of the ESPN network games, but is not under consideration by CBS.

Reggie Davis honored

After an historic first career catch, Reggie Davis has been named the SEC freshman of the week. Davis had two catches for 134 yards, including a school-record 98-yard touchdown catch.

Davis' catch was the longest offensive play in school history, and is tied for the third-longest receiving touchdown in SEC history. Thus far this year it is the longest receiving touchdown at the FBS level.

Meanwhile, the SEC offensive player of the week was someone Georgia will face this week: LSU running back Jeremy Hill earned the honor after racking up 184 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries in a win over Auburn.

Todd Gurley and Aaron Murray were the SEC offensive players of the week the first and second weeks of the season. Georgia had a bye last week, so after each of its games thus far an offensive player has received a weekly SEC honor.

Gag order on O-linemen, again

Georgia says its offensive linemen will not be made available to the media for a second straight week. The team has done this at other times, including prior to last year's game at South Carolina, so it doesn't appear related to the anti-NCAA protest that five offensive linemen participated in Saturday.

That said, it would have been nice to talk to Kolton Houston, Kenarious Gates, David Andrews, Chris Burnette and John Theus to ask them to elaborate on the protest.
