University of Georgia senior center Fernando Velasco was named the Southeastern Conference Offensive Lineman of the Week for the second time this season.

Velasco, a 6-4, 318-pound native of Wrens anchored the Bulldog offense during Georgia’s 45-20 rout of No. 18 Auburn last Saturday. Velasco and the rest of the offensive line paved the way for 417 total yards on offense, including the fourth straight 100-yard rushing game for redshirt freshman Knowshon Moreno.
