USC Quarterback Stephen Garcia has been named SEC offensive player of the week, Davey O'Brien national quarterback of the week, and national offensive player of the week by the Walter Camp Football Foundation for his play on Saturday.
Garcia played a near perfect game against Alabama. He completed 17 of 20 passes for a total of 201 yards and threw no interceptions to lead the Gamecocks to an upset over the number one team in the nation.
"Stephen played awesome," Gamecock tight end Patrick DiMarco said. "He controlled the ball. Did what he was supposed to do; made every play he was supposed to make."
Garcia's teammate Marcus Lattimore says Garcia is a great leader.
"He's going to lead this team every game this season," says Lattimore.
Garcia and the Gamecocks hit the road this weekend to face the Kentucky Wildcats in Lexington.
