Arizona QB Matt Scott named Walter Camp National Player of the Week

Scott Olmos-US PRESSWIRE

Scott led the Wildcats to one of the biggest upsets of the season and put the nation on notice of how explosive the Wildcats' offense can be.

Arizona Wildcats quarterback Matt Scott was named Walter Camp National Player of the Week along with the Georgia Bulldogs' Jarvis Jones, according to a tweet from CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman.

Scott led Arizona to a 39-36 upset win over the formerly No. 9 USC Trojans on Saturday in Tuscon. Scott threw for 369 yards on 27-for-50 passing, rushed for 100 yards, scored four total touchdowns (one rushing) and threw one interception to lead the Wildcats offense.

Scott's performance came in the same game that USC's Matt Barkley put up 493 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions. Scott's smaller number of miscues, diversity of performance with the run and the pass as well as his extra touchdown separated himself from Barkley and the rest of the country's top players for the week.

The Wildcats' Scott-led offense now ranks No. 1 in the Pac-12 and No. 4 nationally in passing yards (354.4 per game) and second in the Pac-12 in points per game (39.1) behind Oregon.
