Spencer Rattler had the game of his career in South Carolina’s blowout upset win over a top-5 Tennessee team. The Gamecock quarterback is being recognized on a national level.

The Walter Camp Football Foundation announced Sunday that Rattler has been named its National Offensive Player of the Week for Week 12. Rattler was 30-of-37 passing for a career-high 438 yards and a school record 6 touchdown passes in a 63-38 win over the Volunteers.

After the game, Rattler called South Carolina’s win one for the ages, beyond Gamecock football.

“This is a game we’ve all been waiting for…we knew this game and the next one can change the narrative of the program forever,” Rattler said. “And tonight, that was one of the best wins ever in college football history.”

It’s the second time in Shane Beamer’s 2-season tenure that South Carolina has pulled off an upset win of 20 points or more when the opponent was favored by 20 points or more.

Rattler is the sixth South Carolina player to earn Walter Camp National Player of Week honors since the award started in 2004, and the first since defensive honoree Jaycee Horn (Oct. 18, 2020).  The Walter Camp Football Foundation named Navy’s John Marshall as its National Defensive Player of the Week.
