On Tuesday, the Southeastern Conference named Missouri quarterback Drew Lock its Offensive Player of the Week after his record-setting performance in Saturday’s game against Missouri State. The honor comes just two days after the Walter Camp Foundation named the junior the FBS Walter Camp Offensive Player of the Week.

On Saturday, Lock torched the Missouri State defense, setting school single-game records with 521 yards and seven touchdowns.

For the Lee’s Summit, Missouri, native, breaking the school’s passing records was a true honor.

“It’s gonna take a while to process,” Lock said after the game. “It’s amazing to think about, considering those records were held by guys I grew up idolizing.”

Lock has shown steady improvement year by year, but in Saturday’s opener, he showed an elevated sense of poise and game control, spreading the ball all over the field and throwing touchdowns to five different receivers.

Lock will have a chance to both validate and improve on those numbers this Saturday when the Tigers host the South Carolina Gamecocks at Memorial Stadium.
