The Citadel linebacker Tevin Floyd has been named the Southern Conference defensive player of the week for his performance in a 69-0 win over Davidson. Floyd, a 6-1, 234-pound junior from Tallahassee, Fla., had eight tackles and returned an interception 28 yards for a touchdown, the third interception and second returned for a TD in his career.

Floyd’s performance highlighted the Bulldogs’ first shutout of an FCS opponent since 2005. The Citadel allowed only 104 yards of total offense against non-scholarship foe Davidson, the second-best mark in school history. Floyd’s interception was one of four for the Bulldogs, their most in one game since 2010.
