AUBURN - Auburn sophomore defensive end Corey Lemonier has been named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week by Rivals.com, it was announced Sunday.
Lemonier, a native of Hialeah, Fla., led the Auburn defense with six tackles in the Tigers' 17-6 win over Florida. Of his six tackles, 3.0 were for loss (minus 20 yards) along with 2.0 sacks (minus 16 yards). He also tallied four quarterback hurries in the win.
He tied his career high in tackles and set new career-bests in tackles for loss and sacks. His tackles for loss and sacks are also team-highs for the season.
Lemonier helped the Auburn defense hold Florida to 194 yards of total offense, which was the fewest by a Gator offense since 1990 at Tennessee (194). It was also the fewest yards the Auburn defense has allowed since surrendering 191 yards to Tennessee in 2008.
The No. 19/23 Auburn football team will return to action this week at No. 1/2 LSU. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. CT on CBS.
