Ole Miss defensive back Tony Conner and defensive end C.J. Johnson have been named weekly award winners by the SEC.
Conner, a sophomore from Batesville, was named the league’s defensive player of the week after totaling seven tackles, three tackles for loss and a sack in the Rebels’ 31-17 win over then-No. 4 Mississippi State.
The 17 points scored tied a season-low for the Bulldogs.
Conner also broke up a pass and had a quarterback pressure.
Johnson was named the league’s defensive lineman of the week. He shared the award with Kentucky’s Bud Dupree.
Johnson had six tackles, 1 1-2 tackles for loss and a sack as the Rebels limited MSU tailback Josh Robinson to 3.7 yards per carry and quarterback Dak Prescott to 2.0 yards per carry.
Prescott was sacked three times and pressured more.
Ole Miss finished the regular season with the nation’s No. 1 scoring defense at 13.8 points per game allowed.
