Let's check out some fun SEC numbers:

117: That's the total number of tackles the top 10 tacklers from the SEC combined for Saturday.

75: That's how many receiving yards South Carolina's Alshon Jeffery needs to break Kenny McKinley's mark of 2,781 to be the school's all-time leader in that category.

4: The number of SEC teams in the top 10 in total defense (Alabama – 3rd; LSU – 5th; Georgia – 6th; South Carolina – 9th).

3: Three of SEC's five active career TD leaders have as many touchdowns as games played (Trent Richardson, UA -- 31 games/31 TDs; Marcus Lattimore, USC -- 19 games/19 TDs; Vick Ballard, Mississippi State -- 25 TDs/18 games).

348: Georgia kicker Blair Walsh now has 348 career points, which puts him eighth in SEC history.

-7: That's Kentucky's SEC-low turnover margin. The Wildcats' -1.17 average margin per game is tied for 108th nationally.

10: Under Nick Saban, Alabama has held opponents to 10 points or less 28 times, including four times in six games this season. Last season, Alabama held opponents to 10 points or less eight times and limited opponents to that mark seven times in 2009 and 2008.

18: Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson completed 18 straight passes from the first quarter to the third against Auburn last week. That was good enough to tie for the third longest in SEC history.

25: Florida running back Chris Rainey's 25-yard run against LSU in the first quarter was the longest the Tigers had given up this season. The previous long was 17 yards.

56.3: That's Tennessee's third-down conversion percentage. The Vols are the only team in the SEC to break 50 percent and rank fourth overall nationally.
