The last time every SEC team rushed the field
Have you ever been a part of rushing the field following a college football game?
Though it seems like a regular part of the college football experience, it actually doesn’t happen all that often at SEC schools.
Thanks to @RedditCFB, we have some data on the last time that each SEC school has stormed the field.
Let’s take a closer look at why those days were worth the exuberant, and perhaps excessive, celebration:
Fans have never rushed the field at Bryant-Denny Stadium. The Crimson Tide fans stick by the “act like you’ve been there before” mantra, apparently.
Date: Nov. 15, 2014
Result: 17-0 win against LSU
Reason: Arkansas snapped a 17-game conference losing streak by bludgeoning the Tigers offense at the point of attack, allowing just 123 total yards.
Date: Nov. 30, 2013
Result: 34-28 win against Alabama
Reason: Even Alabama fans have to respect the Tigers’ right to celebrate this one on the field with their team.
Fans have never rushed the field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. The Swamp is hallowed ground to Gators fans, and apparently they respect that enough not to touch it.
Date: Oct. 7, 2000
Result: 21-10 win against Tennessee
Reason: Georgia ends a nine-game losing streak to the Volunteers.
Date: Oct. 4, 2014
Result: 45-38 win against South Carolina
Reason: Tied with Ole Miss as the most fan base to rush the field, the Wildcats pushed their record to 4-1 (after winning just four games during previous two seasons).
Date: Oct. 25, 2014
Result: 10-7 win against Ole Miss
Reason: The Rebels entered the game unbeaten, but thanks to a late defensive stand and an interception of Bo Wallace deep in Tigers territory, LSU was able to get a huge home victory.
Date: Oct. 23, 2004
Result: 38-31 win against Florida
Reason: Entering the game at 1-5, the Bulldogs pulled off an unlikely upset of the Ron Zook-led Gators.
Date: Nov. 28, 2014
Result: 21-14 win against Arkansas
Reason: The Tigers clinched a second consecutive SEC East title by defeating the white-hot Razorbacks, which hadn’t allowed a point in back-to-back shutouts. With the win, Mizzou improved to 14-2 in regular-season SEC games in two seasons.
Date: Oct. 4, 2014
Result: 23-17 win against Alabama
Reason: Ending a 10-game losing streak to the Crimson Tide, Ole Miss knocked off the No. 3 team in the country to improve to 5-0.
Date: Sept. 29, 2001
Result: 37-36 win against Alabama
Reason: Lou Holtz led the Gamecocks to their first win over Alabama in program history.
Date: Sept. 19, 1998
Result: 20-17 win against Florida
Reason: After failing to get past the Gators in the Peyton Manning era, the Volunteers finally break through in 1998, propelling them to a BCS national championship.
Date: Nov. 20, 2010
Result: 9-6 win against Nebraska
Reason: Knocking off the No. 8 team in the country, the Aggies extended their conference winning streak to five games and reasserted themselves as a force on the national scene.
Date: Nov. 15, 2003
Result: 28-17 win against Kentucky
Reason: A young Jay Cutler helped the Commodores end an embarrassing 23-game SEC losing streak.
