LSU's Key, Growden earn SEC honors

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU defensive end Arden Key and punter Josh Growden have been named SEC players of the week.

Key was named SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week after recording five tackles and two sacks in LSU's 23-20 win over Mississippi State.

The sophomore also had a forced fumble and a quarterback hurry as the Tigers limited the Bulldogs to 56 rushing yards.

The two sacks ran Key's season total to five, which leads the SEC.

Growden was named Co-Special Teams Player of the Week after averaging 49.2 yards per punt against the Bulldogs.

Two of his five punts went over 60 yards, including a career-best 65 yarder in first half and a 61 yard punt late in the game.

The 61 yard punt pinned Mississippi State deep in its own territory, helping the Tigers hang on to a 23-20 victory.
