Collins Named SEC Freshman Of The Week

Updated:

 

Press Release University of Arkansas: 

Arkansas running back Alex Collins has been named SEC Freshman of the Week for his performance in last week's 31-21 win vs. Samford, it was announced Monday.
 
Collins rushed 24 times for 172 yards and his first career touchdown against the Bulldogs. His 172 rushing yards rank as the ninth-highest single-game total in the NCAA this season and highest among freshmen. The Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., native leads the SEC and ranks sixth in the NCAA, first among freshmen, in rushing with an average of 151.5 yards per game. Collins' 303 total rushing yards also lead the conference and rank fourth in the nation.
 
Collins, who last week became the first UA freshman to rush for more than 100 yards in his collegiate debut since Felix Jones in 2005, is the first freshman in school history to open his career with consecutive 100-yard rushing games. He also is the fourth freshman in school history to have multiple 100-yard rushing games in a season, joining Darren McFadden's five in 2005, Felix Jones' two in 2005 and Matt Jones' two in 2001.
 
This is the first weekly conference honor for Collins and the second in a row for the Razorbacks. Junior defensive end Trey Flowers was named SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week for the season's first week, and Collins' selection marks the second time in the last three seasons Arkansas has had a conference player of the week each of the first two weeks.
 
Collins and the rest of the Razorbacks wrap up a three-game homestand this week by hosting Southern Miss inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville. The game will air nationally on SEC TV and kick at 11:21 a.m.
