LSU linebacker Patrick Queen (8) celebrates after making a big stop in the second half of the Tigers' 42-6 win over the Aggies, Saturday, October 5, 2019, at LSU's Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La.

LSU inside linebacker Patrick Queen was honored by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association on Monday for his play in the Tigers' 42-6 rout of Utah State.

Queen, a 6-foot-1, 227-pound junior from Livonia, was voted defensive player of the week for his performance in helping the Tigers hold Utah State to just 159 total yards — including 19 rushing yards.

He recorded a team-high six tackles, including three behind the line of scrimmage for 13 yards in losses. One of his top plays came when he sniffed out a screen pass and dropped the receiver for a 6-yard loss in the fourth quarter.

Nicholls quarterback Chase Fourcade was the offensive player of the week and McNeese State kicker Bailey Raborn earned the special teams honor.
