Incredible stats from Week 7 of college football action include Nick Saban’s commanding record against his former assistants, Alabama’s amazing offense and more.
Another week of college football is in the books.
Saturday was a day for interceptions (unless you play quarterback for Clemson), unexpected upset blowouts and all the fun that comes with a college football weekend in October.
Here are the best stats from all that action in Week 7…
1. Nick Saban is still the boss
Nick Saban’s assistants may have learned from the master, but none has been able to surpass him.
That’s almost two seasons worth of victories over former assistants.
2. What has happened to Alabama’s defense?
The once-vaunted Alabama defense just doesn’t look the same this year. The numbers back up the eye test.
Last week, the offense made up for the defensive woes against Ole Miss. This time, the defense tightened after the half and the offense never let up.
3. Alabama’s transformation into an offensive powerhouse is complete
Who needs defense when your offense puts up points like the Crimson Tide?
Those 17 games are all under the control of offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian.
4. Mac Jones is the king of the big play
Considering the success of recent Alabama quarterbacks, it’s pretty incredible for Mac Jones to carve out his own special stats.
With a penchant for long touchdown passes, it makes sense that Jones is racking up yards like no other.
5. Alabama wide receivers are dominant
It certainly helps that the Crimson Tide have produced some spectacular wide receivers over the years. DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle are making history and helping turn the Tide into WRU.
6. Clemson remains unstoppable
Clemson literally doesn’t lose in the regular season.
Their last regular-season loss was in October of 2017 with Kelly Bryant at quarterback.
7. UCF vs. Memphis was a quarterback’s dream
If you don’t like defense, the battle between the UCF and Memphis was the game for you.
At least Gabriel came way with more than 600 yards and a nifty school record.
8. It was a good day to be Kentucky
The Wildcats gave no quarter to No. 18 Tennessee with one of their most impressive displays in years.
9. It was a bad day to be Tennessee
When it goes wrong for the Volunteers, it goes very wrong.
Jeremy Pruitt has some explaining to do.
