Stackhouse, who hails from Stone Mountain, Ga., was named the SEC Co-Defensive Lineman of the Week after helping the Bulldogs to a 30-21 home victory over the 12th-ranked Missouri Tigers. Stackhouse, who shared his weekly honor with Ole Miss’ Zxavian Harris, recorded his first career interception and also added a tackle in the win.
