COLUMBIA — Missouri junior defensive lineman Markus Golden was named the Southeastern Conference's Defensive Line Player of the Week on Monday. 

Golden opened the Tigers' second half scoring in Saturday's game with a 70-yard interception return for a touchdown. After Toledo quarterback Terrance Owens bobbled the ball while attempting a pass, Golden snagged it out of the air and carried it to the end zone.
