South Carolina sophomore Jadeveon Clowney has been named defensive lineman of the week by the Southeastern Conference.

The 6-6, 256 pounder was credited with seven tackles, including 3.5 for losses for minus 17 yards with two sacks, in South Carolina's 49-6 win over UAB.

D.J. Swearinger was also recognized for his performance on Saturday. He had three tackles, a pass deflection and returned a fumble 65 yards for a touchdown.

The Gamecock defense held the Blazers to just 89 second-half yards and just 27 rushing yards on 42 carries. South Carolina's defense sacked UAB quarterbacks six times in the contest.

Only four of UAB's 15 offensive drives were more than six plays with the Gamecock defense holding UAB to five three-downs-and-out.
