VANDERBILT

Jordan Matthews is on the receiving end of the first part of this article. He has been on the receiving end of a lot throughout his Vanderbilt career. This past week he caught at least one pass is his 29th straight game. But more importantly he had 92 receiving yards and now has 3,172 in his career. He passed Terrence Edwards in the process, and is now the all-time Southeastern Conference leader. He had a career-high 178 receiving yards earlier this season against Ole Miss. He also had his career-low against Ole Miss in 2011 when he had a catch for -1 yards. Here is a breakdown of his receiving yard games:

  • Less than 0 yards: 1 game
  • 1 through 49 yards: 7 games
  • 50 through 99 yards: 14 games
  • 100 through 149 yards: 11 games
  • 150 through 199 yards: 4 games

ALABAMA

The Crimson Tide jumped all over the Tennessee Volunteers early en route to a 35-0 halftime lead and won 45-10. Alabama scored the most points against Tennessee in games played in Tuscaloosa. This article is more about the Crimson Tide defense. Here is a breakdown of each season on how many times they have allowed 10 or fewer points under Nick Saban.

  • 2013: 7 of 8 games
  • 2012: 7 of 14 games
  • 2011: 9 of 13 games
  • 2010: 8 of 13 games
  • 2009: 7 of 14 games
  • 2008: 7 of 14 games
  • 2007: 2 of 13 games

SOUTH CAROLINA

In a crazy game against the other team from Columbia, it was the Gamecocks that scored 17 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to tie the game and eventually defeated the Missouri Tigers 27-24 in two overtimes. It was South Carolina’s first overtime win in the school’s history. In the game, South Carolina had its ups and downs as did one of its star players Mike Davis. One of the ups for Davis was his receptions number. He, along with wide receiver Bruce Ellington, each had 10 receptions. It is not unusual to have 10 receptions in a game for a receiver, but for a running back it is strange. Davis’s 10 receptions tied for the most by a running back this season. The funny thing is that the other running back with 10 did it against Missouri as well. Here are the top five players:

  • Mike Davis (South Carolina vs. Missouri): 10 receptions
  • David Fluellen (Toledo vs. Missouri): 10 receptions
  • D.J. Foster (Arizona State vs. Notre Dame): 9 receptions
  • Akeem Hunt (Purdue vs. Notre Dame): 9 receptions
  • Tony Pierson (Kansas vs. Louisiana Tech): 9 receptions

OLE MISS

Ole Miss was pretty balanced against Idaho last week. Balanced meaning between its two quarterbacks. Bo Wallace had two touchdown passes in the game as did Barry Brunetti. They did the same thing earlier this season against Texas A&M except Wallace had three touchdown strikes. Here are the last five times that teams did this feat in the SEC:

  • 2013 - Ole Miss vs. Idaho: Bo Wallace and Barry Brunetti
  • 2013 - Ole Miss vs. Texas A&M: Bo Wallace and Barry Brunetti
  • 2012 - South Carolina vs. Michigan: Connor Shaw and Dylan Thompson (2013 bowl)
  • 2009 - Florida vs. Florida International: John Brantley and Tim Tebow
  • 2006 - LSU vs. Kentucky: JaMarcus Russell and Matt Flynn

MISSISSIPPI STATE

Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott did something that is very odd, but not really odd to him. Prescott caught a touchdown pass in the win over Kentucky. It is not odd since he did it earlier against Troy as well. Against Troy he caught a 36-yard pass from Jameon Lewis early in the second quarter and against Kentucky he caught another one from Lewis this one going for 17 late in the third.
