Two Tigers received SEC Player of the week honors for their performance in Saturday's 27-24 upset over No. 10 Auburn.

Inside linebacker Devin White was named the defensive player of the week and wide receiver D.J. Chark was named co-offensive player of the week.

Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson, who LSU will face this upcoming Saturday in Oxford, shared the honor with Chark. Per

DJ Chark, WR/PR/, LSU

-Ignited Tiger Stadium with a 75-yard punt return for a touchdown early in fourth quarter that helped spark a dramatic LSU comeback in a 27-23 win over Auburn.

-Down 23-14, Chark hauled in a Aldan Marshall punt at the LSU 25-yard line, reversed field and went untouched for 75 yards for the score.

-Punt return was just part of big day for Chark as he led LSU with five receptions for 150 yards.

-All five of his catches resulted in a first down, and two came on third-and-11 and third-and-15 situations.

-Chark's punt return TD led to 13 fourth quarter points for the Tigers.

-Finished day with 233 all-purpose yards.

Devin White, LB, LSU

-Had fifth consecutive double-digit tackle game with career-high 15 tackles in LSU's 27-23 win over Auburn in Tiger Stadium.

-Added a sack, a pair of tackles for loss and a QB hurry in the LSU victory.

-White led an LSU defense that held Auburn to no points, 64 total yards, six passing yards and four first downs in the second half after Auburn built as much as a 20-0 first half lead.

-LSU trailed 17-0 after first quarter and 20-0 early in second quarter before White and the LSU defense stiffened and the Tiger offense and special teams mounted a rally.

-The 20-point comeback was the largest for LSU in a SEC game in school history.

-Continues to lead SEC in tackles (77) and tackles per game (11.0).

This is pretty much all they'll give LSU while Auburn will be proclaimed "greatest national champion ever" in spite of the LSU comeback. (AU must upset ALA 2017)

Well deserved! Hope Chark can bring that every game here on out... D White seems to do it every single game.
