Man, I’m glad I listened.

by 7/23/2012 9:15 am

Keeping teams from rushing the football effectively has been a common factor in the SEC’s dominance in college football. Of the last six national champs, five have ranked No. 1 or 2 nationally in run defense and all ranked among the Top 5 in that category.
