Mississippi State defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons was named the SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week on Monday. The sophomore became the first Bulldog in 8 years to score 2 defensive touchdowns in a game.

His blocked punt and recovery in the end zone sparked a 36-0 MSU run in their 57-21 victory.

Simmons recovered a fumble and returned it 90 yards for another TD in the 3rd quarter. Johnathan Banks was the last Bulldog to score 2 defensive TDs in a game (October 24th, 2009).
