USC defensive lineman Devin Taylor is the SEC defensive lineman of the week. The sophomore out of Beaufort high school returned an interception 24 yards for a score in the Gamecocks’ 38-24 win over Tennessee Saturday. Taylor also recovered two fumbles against the Vols.
USC running back Marcus Lattimore was one of three to earn “tri-freshman of the week” honors. Lattimore rushed for a career high 184 yards on 29 carries Saturday. He also caught two passes for 26 yards. He ran for one score.
USC will face Arkansas Saturday at 7:00 at Williams-Brice Stadium. Razorbacks quarterback Ryan Mallet is coming off a 409 yard passing performance against Vandy last week. That performance earned him SEC offensive player of the week honors.
