It was a big week for Tennessee, who got an impressive win over Florida that helped solidify the Volunteers as a viable SEC contender.

And leading the way for Tennessee was Hendon Hooker.

Putting together a game where he simply sparkled.

Hendon was named The Maxwell Award Player of the Week for his outstanding performance in sparking the home win for Tennessee.

Last week, Oregon quarterback Bo Nix won the award for his sensational showing in a win over BYU.

 Nix accounted for five touchdowns in the Oregon win.

The Maxwell Football Club awards the Maxwell Award, annually given to the nation’s top college football player.

They also hand out the Chuck Bednarik Award for the top defensive player in college football.

Check out the six players who made this week’s Maxwell Award Weekly Honor Roll!

QB Hendon Hooker, Tennessee In a week where a number of quarterbacks had really strong efforts, Hooker was simply outstanding in being named the Maxwell Award’s Player of the Week. He was 22-of-28 passes for 349 yards with two passing touchdowns. He also had 112 yards rushing and a rushing touchdown as the Volunteers beat Florida.

QB Sam Hartman, Wake Forest Hartman put in a yeoman-like effort for the Demon Deacons, who very nearly upended Clemson on Saturday afternoon. He was 20-of-29 for 337 yards with six passing touchdowns in a 51-45 loss as Wake Forest slides to 3-1 (0-1 ACC).

RB Devon Achane, Texas A&M The Aggies got back on track with a win over Arkansas. Achane got Texas A&M rolling, with 159 rushing yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. His 63-yard run early in the second quarter was a big play as it got Texas A&M out from deep in their own end. A very strong performance from the running back who also runs track.

RB Blake Corum, Michigan The Wolverines survived a bit of a scare from Maryland over the weekend and a big reason why Michigan improved to 4-0 was the play of Corum. With a career-high 243 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries, it was a tremendous all-around weekend from the junior running back.

TE Brock Bowers, Georgia It is a second straight week on the weekly honor roll for Bowers as the Bulldogs tight end had two carries for 77 rushing yards with two rushing touchdowns and five receptions for 77 yards. The sophomore is the best tight end in the nation – and it really isn’t close.

WR Rome Odunze, Washington In an impressive 40-22 win over Stanford, the Huskies wide receiver was impressive with eight catches for 161 yards with a touchdown. The sophomore is intriguing given his size (6-foot-3), wingspan and ability to get yards after the catch. A player to watch in the Pac-12 for sure.
