Hard to shut out the Rebels

Random notes from the SEC press release …

Ole Miss has the fourth-longest conference streak of games without being shutout at 167. The Rebels last failed to score against Arkansas in Fayetteville in 1998 when they lost 34-0.

Florida leads the way with a streak of 308 games that dates back to 1988. Tennessee is next with 234 games going back to 1994, then Georgia with 221 games going back to 1995.

SEC teams averaged 30.4 points last year, the second-highest total since the first conference expansion in 1992.

Jeff Scott is the SEC’s career active rushing leader with 1,804 yards over 32 games. He is third in rushing touchdowns with 15. After one season Johnny Manziel leads active players with 21 career rushing touchdowns.

Vanderbilt’s Jordan Matthews tied for second in the nation with 94 catches in 2012. That led the SEC. He also led the SEC with 1,323 receiving yards and 101.8 yards a game.

Donte Moncrief is second among active SEC players with 97 career receptions, Ja-Mes Logan third with 92. Jordan Matthews is first with 150. That’s the same order as SEC active leaders in receiving yards, Matthews with 2,290, Moncrief with 1,433 and Logan with 1,151.
