Even though both quarterbacks in Saturday’s SEC Championship Game struggled for enough time to throw the ball, Alabama’s AJ McCarron and Goergia’s Aaron Murray still rank as the top two in the NCAA’s passing efficiency standings.
They simply swapped places.
McCarron moved from second to first after Alabama’s 32-28 win after completing 13 of 21 passes for 162 yards, a touchdown and one interception. Murray fell to second after hitting on 18 of 33 passes for 265 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
In the team statistics, Alabama stands first in total defense, first in rushing defense, second in scoring defense (behind Notre Dame), and sixth in pass defense.
In rushing offense, the Crimson Tide ranks 20th nationally and second in the SEC behind Texas A&M.
