A 1,000-yard season is an extraordinary feat in the SEC, and we’ve seen some great runners eclipse that mark over the course of history.
Six from the SEC have in fact notched the mark thus far this regular season; seven surpassed the feat in 2012, and four did in 2011.
Auburn’s Tre Mason finished as the SEC’s leading rusher, notching 1,317 yards and 18 touchdowns, and he became the Tigers’ most potent player down the stretch to help win the SEC West division.
- Tre Mason, Auburn, 1,317 yards, 18 TDs, 5.56 YPC
- Jeremy Hill, LSU, 1,185 yards, 14 TDs, 6.77 YPC
- TJ Yeldon, Alabama, 1,163 yards, 13 TDs, 6.12 YC
- Mike Davis, South Carolina, 1,134 yards, 11 TDs, 5.85 YPC
- Rajion Neal, Tennessee, 1,124 yards, 12 TDs, 5.23 YPC
- Alex Collins, Arkansas, 1,026 yards, 4 TDs, 5.4 YPC
Should top the feat during SEC Championship or bowl season:
- Henry Josey, Missouri, 951 yards, 13 TDs
- Nick Marshall, Auburn, 922 yards, 10 TDs
- Todd Gurley, Georgia, 903 yards, 10 TDs
