Alabama Breaks More SEC Records in Rout of Arkansas
The Alabama Crimson Tide can add a few more titles to their already record-setting 2020 campaign.
After its 52-3 rout of the Arkansas Razorbacks Saturday, the Crimson Tide became the only team to win 10 SEC games in a single season in the history of the conference.
The Crimson Tide have a chance to make it 11 SEC wins if they can defeat the Florida Gators in the SEC championship next week. Only South Carolina and Vanderbilt won’t get a chance to face Alabama in 2020.
But wait, there’s more.
The Crimson Tide are the first team in SEC history to record five 50-point games against league opponents since the league started in 1933. Alabama put up 50 points or more against Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Kentucky, LSU, and Arkansas. The average margin of victory for the regular season was 50-17.
Speaking of which, the Crimson Tide’s top-three ranked offense extended it’s streak of scoring at least 35 points to 23 games, a national record.
As for individual records, Najee Harris’s two touchdown performance tied Alabama’s career touchdown record set by Mark Ingram and Derrick Henry at 42. Barring any unforeseen events, Harris will have at least one more opportunity to break that record.
The Crimson Tide now turn their attention to the high scoring offense of the Florida Gators and the SEC Championship. This matchup will likely decide the outcome of the Heisman Trophy, which is coming down to Florida quarterback Kyle Trask and Crimson Tide hopefuls Devonta Smith and Mac Jones.
The game will be broadcasted on CBS at 7:00 p.m. CT or follow live coverage on Tide 100.9.
