Ark. lineman is SEC Defensive Player of Week

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' Tenarius Wright has been named Southeastern Conference defensive lineman of the week after forcing two fumbles against Texas A&M and getting a sack.

On one play, Wright who stripped the ball from Aggies quarterback Jerrod Johnson to set up Jerry Franklin's 85-yard return for a touchdown.

After redshirting last season, Wright moved from linebacker to the defensive line.

Razorbacks defensive lineman Jake Bequette says that, after Wright's switch, his improvement has been evident every day, and Wright brings a lot of energy to the field.
