For the second time in three weeks, B.J. Jefferson has been named the top defensive player in the Lone Star Conference.
Jefferson continued to dominate the defensive side of the ball as the senior totaled 13 tackles, including five solo stops while leading No. 4 Tarleton past No. 23 Angelo State 30-13 in a battle of the last remaining Lone Star Conference unbeatens.
Jefferson's biggest play of the night came in the third quarter when he forced a strip-sack fumble that was picked up by Tank Morgan. Tarleton turned that into three points, which made it a two-possession game.
Jefferson had 3.0 tackles for a loss, including 1.5 sacks, and a pass breakup to go along with his forced fumble. Jefferson currently leads the LSC with 11 tackles for loss this season.
Through five weeks of LSC Player of the Week awards, Jefferson is the only player in the conference to win the award twice this season.
