Mike Gillislee named SEC Co-Offensive Player of the Week

Kevin Liles-US PRESSWIRE

The Gators RB had a big day against Florida State.

Florida Gators running back Mike Gillislee earned co-Offensive Player of the Week honors from the SEC for his performance against the Florida State Seminoles on Saturday. Gillislee ran for 140 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 24 carries against the Seminoles, including the go-ahead score in the fourth quarter.

It was Gillislee's second consecutive 100-yard rushing day and it pushed him over the 1,000-yard threshold for the season. Gillislee has 1,104 yards rushing, 10 touchdowns and averages 4.7 yards per carry. He set career highs in carries, rushing yardage and rushing touchdowns and also became the first Florida running back to gain more than 1,000 yards rushing since 2004.

Florida's win over Florida State helped to secure a place for the Gators in a BCS bowl. Their landing spot has not yet been determined, but it has been speculated that they'll end up playing in the Sugar Bowl, where they could have a potential matchup with the Oklahoma Sooners.
