Greatest hits in the SEC: Week 6 edition
The biggest hits in the SEC this week came in unconventional fashion. This week lacked any monstrous tackles. Well, there is one, but it wasn’t during the game. Check out the best hits in the SEC during Week 6:
Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell delivers a gigantic open-field block
Treadwell showed he is more than just a great receiver on this play. Treadwell delivers an excellent open field block on a pass to junior wideout Derrick Jones, who finds some open space after catching a pass in the flat. Keep an eye out for Treadwell right around the 40-yard line lowering the boom on a pursuing defender.
Who said wide receivers don’t like to block?
Arkansas tailback Alex Collins gets bowled over in pass protection

Before judging Collins, give him credit for at least trying to block Alabama linebacker Dillon Lee in pass pro. Unfortunately for Collins, he is no match for the 6-foot-4, 242 pound linebacker. A major collision ensues.
It looks like Lee is swatting at a fly. Talk about an effortless pass rush. Lee bats Collins away while helping force a rushed pass.
BONUS: Don’t try rushing the field at Neyland Stadium
The best hit of Week 6 came from somebody who wasn’t even playing in a game. Let’s break it down:
Tennessee salvaged an intense, emotional victory over Georgia. Emotions are running high and the crowd is going bananas. One fan deemed it a big enough win to try and rush the field by himself. This security guard wasn’t having it.
Keep an eye out for a man in a light blue sweater perusing the stands for any would-be field rushers. Like a middle linebacker, he immediately reads the play and makes a break for the fan. Not only does this security guard take an amazing pursuit angle, he also wraps up the reveler with a beautiful form tackle and drives him straight into the Neyland Stadium turf.
