Louisiana-Monroe’s stunning upset of Arkansas, the one that dropped the Razorbacks out of the Associated Press poll completely, has netted the star of the game a major national honor.

The Walter Camp Foundation announced Sunday morning that ULM quarterback Kolton Browning has been named the national Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in the 34-31 overtime win over the then-No. 8 Razorbacks.

Browning accounted for 481 yards of total offense and four touchdowns in the upset. The junior set career highs in highs in passing yards (412), completions (42) and attempts (67). Three of his touchdowns were through the air, while the other score was a 16-yard run (pictured) in the first overtime on fourth down that was the final game-losing dagger for the Hogs.

Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones was also named the Camp Defensive Player of the Week. In No. 7 Georgia’s 21-point win on the road against new SEC member Missouri, Jones totaled nine tackles (six solo) two sacks, one interception and one fumble.

Below is the year-to-date list of weekly 2012 Camp honorees:

Week 1: West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner
Week 2: Louisiana-Monroe quarterback Kolton Browning, Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones

    The honorees so far this season were deserving.

    University of Louisiana–Monroe QB Kolton Browning is deserving for not being intimidated by the Razorback defense or by being down so far in the first half. His coaches should also receive recognition and honor for their game plan, which was followed by Kolton and team.

    Just as they defeated Alabama back in 2007, the Warhawks believed in themselves and in the game plan. They took what the Razorback defense gave them and kept building on it. When Tyler went down and did not return for the second half, the door was opened for them but they marched up and down the field through it.

    Georgia Linebacker Jarvis Jones is a great player. He along with his teammates played hard hitting smash mouth football for 60 minutes, not 45 minutes. That made the difference. It was an even contest, but Jones helped to blow the game open with an interception and a sack in the fourth quarter that led to 14 points in the 41-20 victory on Saturday. He finished with 8 tackles, one sack, a forced fumble and an interception. Jones is considered by many to be the best defensive player in college football.

    JT, you’re being very un-JT like:

    “the one that dropped the Razorbacks out of the polls completely”

    Coaches poll still has them at #21.

    “un-JT like”? ha. You once again brought a smile to my face. I guess if I really think about it, I often am very un-like….myself! (and that’s not always bad.)

    Was speaking with some electric company execs who were miffed that USC played poor teams and LSU was played a PAC12 team but that LSU was raned behind USC in the polls. I told them thaqt the coaches poll jumped LSU over USC for week 2. They lit up…ha. (If I had my “druthers” there would be no rankings for a few more weeks).

    He clearly stated the “Associated Press” poll.
    Try to absorb what you just ready before you comment on it.
    It’s called reading comprehension.

    jonathans:

    I was just grading some papers of some 6th graders and the biggest problem they have in English-Language Arts is reading comprehension. The principal said the students also did poorly on national tests on reading comprehension.

    As far as the posters here go, I think they were having some fun. If you don’t have fun with the “popularity polls” which all the rankings are at this point in the season, then what good are they?
