SEC Football by the Numbers: Does 2020 Have a 1,000 Yard Receiver?

Published

on


Will the SEC have a 1,000-meter receiver in 2020?

The most likely candidate has opted out and will not play this season, in which each SEC team will be limited to 10 conference games on the regular season schedule due to the coronavirus pandemic.

LSU wide receiver JaMarr Chase set a SEC single-season record with 1,780 receiving yards in 2019. But he has chosen not to play in 2020.

Three other SEC receivers reached 1,000 receiving yards in the 2019 season. LSU’s Justin Jefferson and Alabamas Jerry Jeudy are now in the NFL, but wide receiver DeVonta Smith is returning for the Crimson Tide after collecting 1,256 receiving yards last season.

So what are Smith’s odds of becoming the 12th player in SEC history with two 1,000-yard receiving seasons?

Pretty good based on last season: Smiths made his 2019 total in 13 games. But after 10 games last season, Smith had 1,026 receiving yards. After 11 he had 1,120.

After each SEC team has played its 10-game regular season, some will go to a bowl and two will play in the SEC Championship Game. There may be one or more involved in the College Football Playoff, where reaching the championship game would add two more games to the schedule.

But most games that a SEC team will play for the 2020 season will be 13. Most of the conference will not play more than 11. For each of the past five seasons, one SEC team has played at least 15 games per year.

In SEC history, only three players have achieved 1,000 receiving yards for seasons when their teams played 10 games that counted their stats: Vanderbilts Bob Goodridge in 1967, Floridas Carlos Alvarez in 1969, and Auburns Terry Beasley in 1970.

For SEC teams with 11 game seasons, there are 11 1,000-yard receivers.

In the SEC’s 87 previous football seasons, 71 host seasons of 1,000 meters have been achieved by 60 players. All but eight have been 1,000 yard runs in the past 25 seasons. For most of that period, the 12-game regular season was the norm.

In the past 25 seasons, only two were without a 1000-yard receiver in the 2004 and 2008 conference. The SEC recorded a high of five for 1000-yard receivers in 2001, 2006 and 2012.

More recent pass catchers have also benefited from a scoring change by the NCAA. Before 2002, bowls statistics were not included in a player’s official totals.

Does that make a difference?

Here’s an example: In 1987, Wendell Davis caught 72 passes for 993 yards when LSU put together a 9-1-1 regular-season record and earned an invite to the Gator Bowl. In the Tigers’ 30-13 victory over South Carolina in Jacksonville, Davis caught nine passes for 132 yards and three touchdowns.

But Davis’s 1987 season is not included among the SEC’s 1,000-yard hosting campaigns. His official total for the season is 993 receiving yards, not 1,125, which would be the case today. Rather than having Davis take the credit as the first SEC player to receive two 1,000 yard seasons, Tennessees Joey Kent has that accolade for his 1995 and 1996 seasons.

LSU’s Tony Moss in 1988 and Tennessees Tim McGee in 1985, Carl Pickens in 1990 and Peerless Price in 1998 would also have been 1,000 yard recipients had their bowl stats been part of their official records.

Here are the SEC players who have had 1,000 receiving yards in a season (using the official totals):
