The junior had eight tackles, a sack for a 1-yard loss, and a spectacular one-handed interception in leading the Tigers to victory over the Mississippi State Bulldogs.

The interception came just before halftime.

It led to an LSU touchdown and a 22-7 lead just five plays later.

Stevens had a sack on a third and four situation in the third quarter and forced the Bulldogs to punt.

LSU forced three turnovers and held Mississippi State to 340 total yards.

The Bulldogs were just 3-of-12 on third-down opportunities.

Texas A&M linebacker Buddy Johnson was the other co-defensive player of the week.
