Alabama's 350-yard rushing outburst against Georgia in the SEC Championship Game heads our list of the SEC's top offensive performances of 2012:
1. Alabama runs wild vs. Georgia in SEC Championship Game
Down 21-10 in the third quarter of the SEC title game, the Crimson Tide did what they do best. They ran right at the Bulldogs and ended up with 350 rushing yards, a title game record. Eddie Lacy gained 181 yards and two TDs on 20 carries, while freshman T.J. Yeldon added 153 yards and a score on 25 carries. Alabama averaged 6.9 yards per carry in the 32-28 win.
The Tigers arrived in Gainesville 5-0, allowing 83 rushing yards per game. Florida senior RB Gillislee pounded them for 146 yards and two touchdowns on 34 carries. The Gators (176 total rushing yards) methodically wore down LSU and showed they were a different kind of team under Will Muschamp.
Arkansas' 6-3 senior WR set an SEC record with 303 receiving yards on 10 catches against Rutgers, three of which went for touchdowns. He broke the previous record of 293 receiving yards set by LSU's Josh Reed in 2001. Hamilton's 30.3-yards per catch also set a conference record.
We could have picked several performances by Johnny Football, but the one against Louisiana Tech stood out: Texas A&M's redshirt freshman quarterback hit 24 of 40 throws for 395 yards and three TDs and ran for 181 yards and three more scores. The Aggies needed every bit of it as they escaped with a 59-57 win.
After his first pass fell incomplete, South Carolina's junior QB completed his final 20 throws for 252 yards and two TDs in the 31-10 win. And he did it while dealing with a hairline fracture in his throwing shoulder. Shaw's streak tied for second in SEC history to Tennessee's Tee Martin, who hit 23 straight passes against the Gameocks in 1998.
