Reed is the latest Bulldog to earn an SEC honor

Georgia safety J.R. Reed earned an honor from the SEC office following his team's 42-7 win over Florida.

Reed was named the SEC's co-defensive player of the week following his performance in the blowout victory.

In the third quarter, Reed shared a sack with defensive back Tyrique McGhee, which forced a fumble from Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks. Reed then scooped up the loose ball and ran it in for a 3-yard touchdown return.

Reed finished the game with eight total tackles. Reed is now second on the roster with 44 tackles.

Reed shared the award with Kentucky linebacker Jordan James.
