Tucker Honored By Southeastern Conference

University of South Carolina defensive tackle Chris Tucker has been selected as the Southeastern Conference Defensive Lineman of the Week for his efforts in the Gamecocks' 30-22 win over Florida on Saturday...

Tucker, a 6-1, 288-pound senior from Decatur, Ga., accounted for two solo tackles, one for a 10-yard sack, and an interception in Carolina's first win over the Gators since 1939. His interception of a Chris Leak pass and 48-yard return to the UF five-yard line set up USC's first touchdown of the game. His sack came in the fourth quarter, helping the Gamecocks hold off a late Florida charge.

Tucker and the Gamecocks will be in action again Saturday when they host in-state rival Clemson in a 7:00 p.m. at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia.
