BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall, Missouri defensive end Michael Sam and Tennessee kicker Michael Palardy are the Southeastern Conference's players of the week.

Marshall was honored Monday after passing for 236 yards and two touchdowns and rushing for a career-high 100 yards and two TDs to lead No. 11 Auburn to an upset of then-No. 7 Texas A&M.

Sam had three sacks in No. 5 Missouri's wins over Florida. He leads the SEC in sacks and tackles for loss.

Palardy kicked a game-winning, 19-yard field goal in Tennessee's 23-21 win over then-No. 11 South Carolina. He also averaged 40.4 yards on eight punts.

Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk is freshman of the week. The league gave lineman honors to Vanderbilt tackle Wesley Johnson and Mississippi defensive end Cameron Whigham.
