LSU place-kicker Josh Jasper has been named the Southeastern Conference Special Teams Player of the Week after kicking four field goals, including the game-winner in overtime, in the Tigers' 33-30 win over Arkansas on Saturday.

Trailing, 30-27, Jasper sent the game into overtime with a 41-yard field goal with four-seconds left in the contest.

He then kicked the game-winner from 36 yards in overtime as the Tigers improved to 9-3 overall.

Jasper's four field goals tied a school-record as he ran his season total to 16 field goals, which ranked fourth in school history.
