USC sophomore quarterback Connor Shaw’s four touchdown performance against Kentucky earned him this week’s SEC Offensive Player of the Week honors. All told, Shaw completed 26 of his 39 passes for 311 yards. He also ran the ball 15 times for 42 yards. He did not have a turnover.
Shaw is the first USC quarterback to toss four touchdowns in a game since Blake Mitchell did it against MTSU in 2006.
This weekend Shaw will get a road test as USC faces Mississippi State in Starkville. Kickoff is at 12:21 on the SEC Network.
