BATON ROUGE - LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger and wide receiver/return specialist Odell Beckham Jr., along with Nicholls State's T. J. Lumar have been named this week's Louisiana Sports Writers Association's college football players of the week.

Mettenberger threw for a school record five touchdown passes in the 56-17 win over UAB to win offensive honors, while Beckham had the third best all-purpose total in school history that included a 100-yard return of a missed field goal to take special team honors.

Lumar had nine tackles and a crucial interception in the Colonels' win, 25-23, over Western Michigan to get the defensive nod of the LSWA voters.
