15 SEC Football records that will never be broken
« on: August 12, 2017, 05:53:32 am »

Records are made to be broken, it’s said, but the SEC has many football records that will never be broken. Some can’t be broken.

Quote
Other records are safe because of the way that football has changed over the years. For instance, Tennessee didn’t give up a point during the regular season in 1939.

 7 touchdowns scored in one game (individual)

Arnold “Showboat” Boykin’s record, set in Ole Miss’ 49-7 victory over Mississippi State on Dec. 1, 1951, isn’t only an SEC best; it’s an NCAA record.

 13 PATs attempted in one game (individual)

Harold “Red” Lutz lined up for 13 extra-points attempts in Alabama’s 89-0 victory over Delta State on Sept. 21, 1951, in Montgomery. He made 11.

 14 conference championships (coach)

Paul “Bear” Bryant coached 14 SEC championship teams – one at Kentucky and 13 at Alabama. The Crimson Tide’s Nick Saban has coached the past three SEC title teams, leaving him halfway.

 30 punts in one game (individual)

Bret Johnson punted 30 times in Kentucky’s 7-0 loss to Washington and Lee on Sept. 29, 1934 –

60-yard field goal (individual)

The longest successful field goal in SEC history was kicked by Tennessee’s Fuad Reveiz in 1982 at 60 yards. In 1984, Georgia’s Kevin Butler (above) and Florida’s Chris Perkins also connected on 60-yard field goals. The record field goals all were kicked with the ball placed on a flat tee, a practice banned in 1989.

68 career interceptions thrown (individual)

There’s more passing now in college football than ever, but interception rates are miniscule compared to what they once were. Georgia quarterback Zeke Bratkowski was intercepted 68 times on his 734 passes from 1951 through 1953, then spent 14 seasons in the NFL. One out of every 11 passes thrown by Bratkowski for the Bulldogs was picked off. Last year, Arkansas quarterback Austin Allen...

5,289 career rushing yards (individual)

Georgia running back Herschel Walker became the SEC’s all-time rushing leader by running for 5,289 yards from 1980 through 1982. Arkansas’ Darren McFadden has come the closest to Walker, with 4,590 rushing yards for the Razorbacks from 2005 through 2007. If McFadden had returned for his senior season, he’d probably have broken Walker’s record. But that’s the point. Any running back who could run for 1,500 yards a season for three years, as McFadden did, isn’t coming back for another. He’ll be in the NFL. (The SEC’s rushing record ought to be 5,626 yards. That’s Walker’s regular-season total plus his 337 rushing yards in bowls – stats that count for today’s players but weren’t official when Walker played.)

Woznik hit a 52 yard field goal which Muschamp said would have been good from 60.  Battle at punter continues.


So there.
