ATHENS - Georgia's run of offensive honors continues, and now the team's special teams can claim an honor as well.

Aaron Murray was named the SEC offensive player of the week for the second time this season, after passing for 298 yards and four touchdowns in Georgia's 44-41 win over LSU. Murray also received the honor after the second week of the season, when he passed Georgia past South Carolina.

There have been five weeks in the season, and three times Georgia players have been SEC offensive player of the week: Todd Gurley received the honor after Georgia's opening-week loss at Clemson. In fact, a Georgia offensive player has been honored by the SEC after each of its game: Receiver Reggie Davis was the SEC freshman of the week after the win over North Texas.

Meanwhile, kicker Marshall Morgan was named the SEC special teams player of the week. The sophomore went three-for-three on field goal attempts, including a 55-yarder that ultimately was the scoring difference in the three-point win.

Morgan was suspended the first two games of the season. In the two games since his return he is 4-for-5 on field goals, with the only miss coming from 52 yards, and perfect on extra point attempts.

Missouri game time announced

Georgia's next home game will be an afternoon affair. The SEC announced Monday that Missouri's visit to Sanford Stadium on Oct. 12 will kick off at noon and be broadcast by ESPN.

It will be the earliest kickoff this season for Georgia, which started at 12:20 p.m. against North Texas.

This week the Bulldogs will be kicking off at 3:30 p.m. on CBS for a second straight week.
