BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Kentucky quarterback Andre' Woodson, Mississippi State defensive back Derek Pegues and Florida return man Brandon James were named the Southeastern Conference players of the week Monday.

Woodson completed 30 of 44 passes for 275 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in Kentuckys 40-34 upset of Louisville, including a 57-yard TD pass to Steve Johnson with 28 seconds left. He broke the SEC record for consecutive passes without an interception at 257. The old record of 214 was set by Georgia's David Greene.

Pegues returned an interception 20 yards for a touchdown in Mississippi State's 19-14 win at Auburn. It was his third interception return for a score, a school record.

Pegues also had five tackles and a pass deflection.

James scored on an 83-yard punt return the first time he touched the ball in Florida's 59-20 win over Tennessee. It was tied for the fifth longest in Florida history. He leads the nation with a 30.8-yard average on punt returns. James had 193 all-purpose yards in the game, 159 on returns.

Vanderbilt offensive tackle Chris Williams and Georgia defensive tackle Jeff Owens were named the linemen of the week. Alabama tailback Terry Grant was the freshman of the week for the third consecutive time.
