With a 74-yard punt return for a touchdown and a total of 95 return yards, Florida's Brandon James was an easy choice for the Southeastern Conference's Special Teams Player of the Week honor.

It's the second time Brandon James has won the award, winning it last year after he returned a punt for a touchdown in Florida's 59-20 win against Tennessee.

James returned four punts for an average of 23 yards per return. His touchdown was the fourth punt return for a touchdown, tying a school record set by Jacquez Green. His 74-yard return was also tied for the longest return during college football's opening weekend.

James also recorded a tackle on special teams and carried three times for 16 yards on offense.
