6 of 6

SEC Statistical Leader

Plain and simple, Shea Patterson is the best QB in the conference. Right now, after three weeks of football, Shea Patterson leads the conference in passing yardage with 1281. Shea is 86 of 122 with 11 TDs. He also has a passer rating of 181.9 which lands him in second place in that statistical category.

In the game against Cal, Shea had 363 yards and 2 TDs. Both were 70+ yarders to two of the best receivers in the SEC. Oh yeah, Shea also has one of the best receiving corps in the nation, and the very best in the SEC.

We know we have a great quarterback in Number 20 and Shea knows Saban and his defense will come after him. However, Shea has one of the best offenses he’s ever been a part of. Shea knows the potential of this offense and this team and will get the very best they have when Ole Miss rolls into T-town.
