The stars were out this week in the SEC. A lot of familiar names were making big plays.

Here are the helmet stickers for Week 4:

South Carolina outside linebacker Eric Norwood: He's been the SEC's best defensive player four weeks into the season. Norwood had two sacks in South Carolina's 16-10 win over Ole Miss on Thursday night to raise his league-leading total to six. He also partially blocked a punt and generally made life miserable for Ole Miss quarterback Jevan Snead. There's not a player in the league right now who has made a bigger impact on his team to this point than Norwood.

Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy: For a guy who was supposed to be one of the question marks for Alabama coming into the season, McElroy has been off-the-charts good. He threw for a career-high 291 yards and three touchdowns in the 35-7 win over Arkansas. He has seven touchdown passes and one interception this season and has gone 81 straight pass attempts now without throwing an interception. He's been terrific at spreading the ball around.

LSU safety Chad Jones: You can watch football for a long time and not see a better punt return than Jones' 93-yard gem for a touchdown in LSU's 30-26 win over Mississippi State. It accounted for LSU's only points of the fourth quarter, but Jones wasn't finished. In the final minute, he tipped away a Mississippi State pass on third down at the goal line after going skyward to stop the over-the-top play and having enough athleticism to reach out and deflect the play-action pass. The Tigers would have been toast without him Saturday.

Auburn quarterback Chris Todd: The Tigers' senior quarterback has them scrambling on the Plains to find out what the school record is for touchdown passes in a season. He threw five more Saturday in Auburn's 54-30 win over Ball State and has 11 through four games. Todd only missed seven passes all night, and four of his touchdowns were 26 yards or longer. He's easily the SEC's comeback player of the year at this point.

Georgia place-kicker Blair Walsh: Some of the special-teams units in the SEC haven't been anything to write home about this season, but Walsh saved the Bulldogs from what would have been a devastating loss with a pair of fourth-quarter field goals. His 37-yarder as time expired was the game-winner in Georgia's 20-17 win over Arizona State.
