Brandon James honored by SEC



Junior return specialist Brandon James on Monday was named the SEC Special Teams Player of the Week for his outstanding peformance in Florida's 30-6 win over Tennessee last Saturday.

In the game:

- James accounted for 144 return yards, including a 78-yard punt return for a touchdown.

- His punt return for a score came with 4:42 left in the first quarter and gave the Gators a 17-0 lead. 

- On the game’s opening kickoff, James had a 52 yard return to the UT 44 yard line, which set up the Gators' first touchdown.

James is currently tied for the UF record for career punt returns for touchdowns with four. 

"That's good news,'' UF coach Urban Meyer said. "Brandon James deserves that.''
