Nick Bolton named SEC defensive player of the week
COLUMBIA - Mizzou's sophmore linebacker, Nick Bolton, is the SEC defensive player of the week after leading the Tigers to a 38-7 victory over West Virginia Saturday.
Bolton walked away with a career high 10 tackles and three tackles for loss. His performance didn't stop there.
He managed to make his first two interceptions, including a 20-yard pick six return in the fourth quarter to secure the win.
Bolton is the first Mizzou linebacker with two interceptions in a game since Kentrell Brothers in 2015.
Missouri is looking for another win against Southeast Missouri State at Faurot Field Saturday to go 2-1.
