Mizzou Football standout DE Charles Harris (Kansas City, Mo.) earned SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week following a monster performance in a 26-17 Mizzou win over Vanderbilt last Saturday (Nov. 12). Harris was disruptive in the Commodore backfield throughout the entire game, starting with a sack on the opening series. He finished with a career-high nine tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble and two QB hurries.
Monday’s honor is the first SEC weekly honor for Harris despite being an All-SEC honoree last year and a preseason honoree this year. Harris has been on an absolute tear over the last two games, posting 17 total tackles (10 solo), 5.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, a forced fumble and two QB hurries.
Harris’ 2.5 sacks last weekend against Vanderbilt moved his career total to 17.0, tied for eighth on Mizzou’s all-time career list. He now has 8.0 sacks on the season with all of them coming in SEC games, including three games with multiple sacks.
