Continuing a trend - Special Teams Player of the Week

SEC office getting in on the action:

Rodrigo Blankenship, PK, Georgia
  • Set career-highs by going 4-for-4 on field goals (25, 42, career long 49, 25) and tallying 13 total points, including a game-winner from 25 yards out as time expired to top Kentucky 27-24 in Lexington.
  • He is now 9-for-10 on the year and has connected on his last eight in a row.
  • Blankenship became the first Bulldog to hit a game-winning field goal since Marshall Morgan against Missouri last year in a 9-6 victory in Athens and the last Bulldog to do it to end the game since Blair Walsh hit a 37 yarder against Arizona State in 2009.
  • Blankenship's four field goals was the most by a Bulldog since Morgan against Nebraska in the 2014 TaxSlayer Bowl.
