COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M’s Kellen Mond’s impressive performance in the Aggies’ win over No. 4 Florida earned him inclusion on the Davey O’Brien Award Great 8 list and Manning Award Stars of the Week, announced Monday.


In addition to the Great 8 list and Star of the Week honors, Mond was named SEC Offensive Player of the Week for the first time in his career. The San Antonio native became Texas A&M’s all-time passing yardage leader after throwing for 338 yards and three touchdowns against the Gators. Saturday marked the seventh 300-yard passing game of Mond’s career and the second time he has thrown for over 300 yards in back-to-back games.


Mond’s performance led to A&M’s first win over a top-five team since defeating No. 3 Auburn on the road, 41-38, in 2014 and the first top-five win at Kyle Field since knocking off No. 1 Oklahoma, 30-26, in 2002.


The Maroon & White take to the road this Saturday for a showdown against Mississippi State in Starkville. The matchup against the Bulldogs is slated to be aired nationally on SEC Network at 3 p.m. (CT) with Dave Neal, DJ Shockley and Dawn Davenport on the call.
