A look at SEC offensive and defensive team stats after week 1.
In SEC offensive team stats, as you can see, Kentucky ranks at the bottom. UK’s 97 yards passing was one less than LSU managed in the Tigers’ win over Oregon in the Cowboys Classic. The Cats seven complete passes were a league low for the weekend. Only Auburn and Ole Miss rushed for less yards. Ole Miss had an excuse, losing lead rusher Brandon Bolden to an ankle injury.
SEC defensive team stats after the first week of play. Rick Minter’s new defense ranked fourth for the week. And look at the passing stats. UK had a league-high four interceptions, without giving up a touchdown pass. Meanwhile, Alabama’s defensive numbers against Kent State were ridiculous. The Crimson Tide gave up -9 yards rushing to Nick Saban’s alma mater. And Florida allowed Florida Atlantic 30 rushing yards on 30 attempts.
