Week 4 was full of close games, upsets, and absolute blowouts. As conference play has heated up, these players have stepped up and helped lead their teams to victory, or gave it their all out effort in defeat.

This list of consists of All-Americans, freshman studs, and a few relatively unheard of players.

After having a monster game against new conference rival Missouri, Conner Shaw was named SEC co-offensive player of the week.

Shaw absolutely destroyed Mizzou's secondary, completing 20-of-21 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns, leading South Carolina to a 31-10 victory.

The one incomplete pass was Shaw's first throw of the day, meaning the consecutive completion streak is still alive. He is four away from tying Tennessee's Tee Martin, who holds the SEC record at 24 straight.
