    STARKVILLE — The honors keep rolling in for Mississippi State.

    The No. 21 Bulldogs were represented by two players this week in the Southeastern Conference’s Players of the Week.

    Senior left tackle Derek Sherrod was named the SEC’s offensive lineman of the week after finishing with a 91 percent blocking grade in the Bulldogs’ 24-17 win over Kentucky. Senior middle linebacker Chris White was named the Defensive Player of the Week after he recorded a career-high 15 tackles against the Wildcats.

    The SEC’s capsules for MSU’s honorees are below.

    6-6 • 305 • Sr. • Columbus, Miss.

    • Sherrod paved the way for the Mississippi State offense to rush for 214 yards and average 5.5 yards per carry in the Bulldogs’ 24-17 win over Kentucky.
    • Finished with a 91 percent blocking grade, the seventh time he’s eclipsed the 90 percent mark this season, and five knockdown blocks
    • State has rushed for over 200 yards in five straight games, and have passed the century mark in every game this year (and 20 of 21 dating back to last season)

    6-4 • 245 • Sr. • Vancleave, Miss.

    • White posted a career-high 15 tackles with one tackle for loss and one interception in Mississippi State’s 24-17 win over Kentucky.
    • He led a Bulldog defense that allowed only 89 rushing yards on 43 attempts (2.1 average).
    • State’s defense held UK to less than half its average points per game and nearly 100 yards below its per-game average.
