BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Vanderbilt receiver Jordan Matthews, Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley and Crimson Tide punter Cody Mandell are the Southeastern Conference players of the week.

Matthews was named offensive player of the week Monday after collecting 12 catches for 141 yards in the Commodores' win over Kentucky. He became the first SEC receiver to reach 80 receptions in two seasons.

Mosley led Alabama with eight tackles in a win over Mississippi State, which managed just 197 yards.

Mandell got the special teams honor after averaging 55.0 yards on four punts. He had two kicks of 60-plus yards downed inside the 5-yard line.

South Carolina placekicker Elliott Fry is freshman of the week. Auburn center Reese Dismukes was honored on the offensive line and Mississippi's Robert Nkemdiche on the defensive line.
