Derek Barnett’s historic sack numbers unmatched in the SEC's history
The SEC has produced many legendary pass-rushers over the years, but none have consistently produced quite like Tennessee’s Derek Barnett.
A UT Twitter account noted that Barnett is the first player in conference history to notch double-digit sacks in three consecutive seasons.

Barnett will have a chance to add to that season total on Saturday against Missouri. They won’t come easy, however, as Mizzou has allowed the fewest sacks among SEC teams with only 11 in 10 games.
