1izCO1.AuSt.71

With four weeks of the college football season in the books, time to run the numbers and look at how SEC offenses are doing to this point.

Texas A&M leads the SEC in total offense, averaging 602.2 yards per game, with Georgia second at 574.0. Missouri leads the league in rushing offense at 270 yards per game. Ole Miss is second at 250. Texas A&M is No. 1 in pass offense at 391 yards per game. Georgia is second at 360.7.

But let’s look at the best and worst performances in individual games.

With Kentucky and Florida playing Saturday, I’ve bold-faced their mentions.
