FAYETTEVILLE - Arkansas receiver Cobi Hamilton was named the Southeastern Conference's Co-Offensive Player of the Week on Monday.
Hamilton was recognized after catching 10 passes for 303 yards with 3 touchdowns in the Razorbacks' 35-26 loss to Rutgers last Saturday. The performance set the SEC's single-game records for receiving yards in a game, breaking a mark held by former LSU receiver Josh Reed. It also set the school record, which was set by Jarius Wright (281 yards) in 2011.
Hamilton shared the award with South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw, who completed 20 of 21 passes for 249 yards with 2 touchdowns in a 31-10 win over Missouri.
Hamilton's efforts played a big role in Arkansas' late charge, which fell short Saturday. He caught a 54-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter, then caught 10- and 80-yard touchdowns in the second half. His third touchdown catch - which also tied the school's single-game record - helped Arkansas pull to within 28-26.
The Texarkana, Texas, native is No. 1 in the SEC in receiving yards a game (107.2) and ranks 10th nationally. His 303-yard effort also was the 14th-best performance in Football Bowl Subdivision history.
