The SEC has a storied tradition of producing some of the top running backs at the collegiate level year after year. The 2015 season will be no different with Georgia, Missouri, LSU and Arkansas each returning a 1,000-yard rusher.
It’s fair to say that back in the preseason no one predicted these two teams — who went a combined 2–14 in the league in 2012 — to meet in the SEC Championship Game. Auburn completed the unlikely worst-to-first journey with a stunning win over Alabama last Saturday afternoon. The Tigers were outgained by more than 100 yards and did not force a turnover yet somehow found a way to beat the No. 1 team in the nation.
