Matt Scott named Walter Camp National Player of the Week

Oct 28, 2012, 2:57 PM | Updated: 8:41 pm

UA quarterback Matt Scott might have had to watch the final minutes of the Wildcats’ 39-36 upset win over No. 9 USC Saturday from the sidelines, but the senior certainly made the most of his time on the field over the first three-plus quarters of play.

Going up against preseason Heisman favorite Matt Barkley, it was Scott who shined brightest against the Trojans in Tucson. He went 27-for-50 with 369 passing yards, 100 yards rushing and four total touchdowns, as UA erased a 15-point third quarter deficit en route to the biggest win in the Rich Rodriguez era.

For his efforts, Scott joined Georgia’s Jarvis Jones as the Week 9 recipients of the Walter Camp National Player of the Week honor.

With Scott behind center this season, the Wildcats rank No. 1 in Pac-12 and No. 4 nationally in passing yards (354.4 per game). Arizona is also No. 2 in the conference in points per game (39.1) behind Oregon.
