Ole Miss Football: Matt Corral tabbed Davey O’Brien QB of the Week

Ole Miss football has put up impressive numbers behind Matt Corral who has been named the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback of the week.

Ole Miss football is synonymous with great quarterbacks and the 2020 Ole Miss Rebels do indeed have a great one. Redshirt sophomore Matt Corral has thus far been nothing short of amazing in the 2020 college football season and has proven to be a much better quarterback than many gave him credit for. Despite the Rebels 2-4 record in the Covid-19 edition of an SEC-only 10-game schedule, Corral has shown he has the intelligence to run a high-potency offense and the arm to make the throws that count when needed.

This past week at Vandy, Corral demonstrated what he and the offense can do completing 31 of 34 attempts for 412 yards and 6 TDs. The Davey O’Brien Foundation took notice naming Matt Corral as the National Quarterback of the week. Corral was also named the Walter Camp Player of the Week as well as the SEC Offensive Player of the Week. The proof that Corral is a great QB doesn’t lay in just one week but what he has done throughout the 2020 college football season.

What Corral Has Done

Matt Corral has put up some huge numbers during the 2020 Ole Miss football season. So far thru six games, Corral has completed 134 passes of 187 attempts for 1,846 yards and 18 TDs with 9 INTs. Corral has had four 300+ passing yard games in 2020 and is averaging 307.67 yards passing per game.

Against Vandy Corral completed his first 19 passes consecutively surpassing the Ole Miss record of 18 consecutive passes set by Rebels great  Eli Manning. Corral’s 6 TD passes tied the Ole Miss record of single-game TD passes also set by Eli Manning.

As of now, Corral is third on the Ole Miss roster in rushing with 281 yards on 67 carries, an average of 4.2 yards per carry, and 46.83 yards per game. Corral has 2 rushing TDs thus far in the 2020 Ole Miss football season.
