OXFORD, Miss. (WMC) - Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral is the Davey O’Brien Award National Quarterback of the Week.

The sophomore just racked up a record-setting effort against Vanderbilt, completing 31-34 passes for 412 yards and six touchdowns in the Rebels' 54-21 win.

His 6 TDs are the most in regulation play by an Ole Miss QB.

Eli Manning had six in a game, but one was in overtime against Arkansas in 2002.

The 412 yards is a career high.

His 91.2 completion percentage ties an SEC record set by former Tennessee star Josh Dobbs with a minimum of 30 attempts.

Corral’s 19 straight completions to start the game, breaking another Manning mark.

Ole Miss is off this week. The Rebels next host South Carolina Nov. 14.
