ATHENS - Aaron Murray is SEC offensive player of the week for the second time this season, although this time he has to share it.

Murray was recognized by the SEC, along with Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray. Murray, a junior quarterback, passed for 384 yards and four touchdowns in a 37-10 win over Ole Miss, completing passes to 11 different receivers, and four different players catching a touchdown.

Bray, a junior, passed for 530 yards and five touchdowns in Tennessee's shootout win over Troy, 55-48. Bray was 29-for-47, and Murray was 21-for-28.

Murray was the SEC offensive player of the week earlier this season after his team's win over Kentucky.

Last week Murray was also named one of 16 semifinalists for the Davey O'Brien award, given to the nation's top quarterback.

Then there's this, via Murray's twitter account on Monday morning: "Turn 22 on Saturday and have a chance to win the SEC East. It's gonna be a great week!"
