    With the NFL draft a month away, the LSU football players looking to move on to the next level are down to few opportunities left to show teams their worth.

BATON ROUGE – LSU defensive end Sam Montgomery has been named the Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in Saturday's 12-10 road win over Auburn.

Montgomery, a junior from Greenwood, S.C., had four tackles, 3.5 of which went for losses in LSU's win over Auburn. Montgomery's first tackle for loss resulted in a safety and gave LSU a 2-0 first quarter advantage. Montgomery added a sack for a 5-yard loss and also had 2.5 tackles that resulted in nine yards in losses in the LSU victory.

As a unit, Montgomery led an LSU defense that limited Auburn to just nine first downs and 183 total yards (86 rushing, 97 passing). Auburn's longest drive of the game covered just 42 yards and they got inside the LSU 25-yard line just twice, one of which came after an LSU fumble that gave Auburn the ball at the LSU 26-yard line.

The SEC honor is the second for Montgomery this year as he was named the league's defensive lineman of the week for his play in the 41-3 win over Washington in week 2.
