Arizona State University senior linebacker Mike Nixon was named the Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Week.

Nixon did a little bit of everything for the Sun Devils during their 50-3 win over Idaho State. He intercepted three passes, returning one for a touchdown, collected four tackles and blocked a punt for the ASU defense, which limited Idaho State to only 37 yards of total offense. He also added a half tackle for loss and a pass breakup.

The Phoenix native, who tied for the Pac-10 lead with five interceptions last season, now has eight career picks, all coming in the last nine games. He went the first 30 games of his career without an interception.
