Defensive Player of the Week: Wallace Scott, McNeese State
For the second consecutive week and the third time this season, Scott’s play for the McNeese State Cowboys has earned him defensive honors for the Southland. In the battle of conference unbeatens between the Cowboys and Central Arkansas, the senior from Weyanoke, La. (West Feliciana H.S.), gave the Cowboys the lead in the fourth quarter with a 45-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown. The score helped ignite a streak of 21 unanswered points, all in the fourth quarter, for McNeese State on the way to a 28-13 win. Scott also had four solo tackles on the evening.
ESPN shuffles games to put LSU on main channel against South Carolina , giving LSU its prime spot at 2:30 pm, while pushing some games to lesser-seen channels. Other games, including Tulane’s game at Temple, actually got bumped to more prime viewing channels.
McNeese is currently number one in the country in scoring defense at just 6.7 points per game, while ranking second nationally in yards allowed. Defensive back Dominique Hill is a big factor why, the sophomore leads the team in both tackles with 17 and tackles for a loss with 5.5.
