BATON ROUGE - The Southeastern Conference recognized two LSU players for their performance in the Tigers' win over Washington this weekend.

Freshman cornerback Jalen Mills and junior defensive end Sam Montgomery received SEC Player of the Week honors. Mills was named Freshman of the Week, and Montgomery Defensive Lineman of the Week.

Mills, a true freshman, had seven tackles in just his second start at cornerback, and his first career interception. Montgomery, a 2011 All-American, had four tackles, one sack, 1.5 tackles for loss and three quarterback hurries in the Tigers' 41-3 win over the Huskies.

LSU's defense held Washington to just 183 yards of total offense and only 12 first downs. The Huskies managed just 26 rushing yards on 24 attempts as Washington quarterback Keith Price was sacked four times.

The Tigers host the Idaho Vandals this Saturday night with a 7:00 kickoff.
