SPARTANBURG, S.C. - After totaling five touchdowns during Georgia
Southern’s 69-26 win over Howard Saturday, junior quarterback Jerick
McKinnon was named the Southern Conference Offensive Player of the Week. The honor is the first of his career.

McKinnon rushed for a career-high 198 yards and three touchdowns and completed two passes for 32 yards and two touchdowns against the Bison. The Marietta, Ga., native became the first Eagle since Antonio Henton in 2008 to be responsible for five touchdowns in a game and the first since Jayson Foster in 2007 to do so in regulation.

McKinnon averaged 12.4 yards per run on his 16 carries Saturday and
posted a career-long 87-yard touchdown run, which is also the Eagles' longest play from scrimmage this season. The junior finished the day over 100-yards rushing for the seventh time in his career.
