Matt Corral named Walter Camp National FBS Offensive Player of the Week

OXFORD, Miss. — Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral has been named the Football Bowl Subdivision National Offensive Player of the Week by the Walter Camp Football Foundation for the week ending September 11.

This is the 18th year that the Walter Camp Football Foundation has honored one defense and one offensive player as its national FBS player of the week. Players are chosen by a panel of national media members. Arkansas linebacker Hayden Henry was named Defensive Player of the Week.

Corral, a junior from Ventura CA, played two games in a five-day span, completing in total 43-of-65 passes for 662 yards and six touchdowns (no interceptions) as the Rebels beat Louisville, 43-24, and Austin Peay, 54-17.

In the win over Louisville, Corral passed for 381 yards. In the win over Austin Peay, he notched five touchdown passes.

This is the second time Corral has earned Walter Camp Offensive Player of Week honors, as he also was named the recipient on November 1, 2020. He is the third Ole Miss player to earn Player of Week honors since 2004.

Hotty Toddy and congratulations to Matt!
