It’s time for fun with numbers.
SEC action always leads to interesting stats after each game day. Sometimes, numbers aren’t surprising. But on other occasions, figures can pop out and make you say, “Wow!”
Below are a few worth revisiting from Saturday.
Did you know that Auburn is 8-0 all-time when an opposing quarterback passes for more than 400 yards or that Will Muschamp is 5-0 as a head coach against Tennessee?
What about Auburn running back Kamryn Pettway averaging 199 yards rushing per game in October or that Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald became the third SEC player to pass for 400 yards and rush for 100 in a single game?
How about the fact that Ole Miss has played six opponents in the Top 25 or that Florida and Georgia combined for 67 rushes Saturday but only two went for more than 10 yards?
Enjoy the knowledge below:
