Some interesting statistics:

Washington linebacker Shaq Williams has scored five touchdowns this season. Three of those have come off fumble returns, one 99-yard interception return, and one rushing touchdown.

Seven teams have thrown for fewer yards on the season than Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday threw in his record-setting performance last week (734 passing yards). UCF (714), North Texas (705), UTEP (702), Air Force (683), Boston College (666), Georgia Tech (663), and Navy (595).

There were ten fumbles combined in Kentucky’s 48-14 win over Louisiana-Monroe (five for each team). However, only one was lost by the Warhawks.

The SEC West is currently 26-0 against all other teams who are not in the SEC West.

Clemson defensive end Vic Beasley set the school sack record, passing Michael Dean Perry and Gaines Adams with 29 career sacks.

Miami Hurricanes running back Duke Johnson passed Clinton Portis for fourth all-time on the program’s rushing yards list (2,654 rushing yards) and also passed Santana Moss for first all-time in Hurricanes’ history with 4, 427 all-purpose yards.

North Dakota State extended their FCS-record, defeating No. 13 Southern Illinois 38-10 for their 30th straight FCS win.

Georgia running back Nick Chubb carried the ball 38 times in the Bulldogs’ 34-0 win over Missouri. That total was eight more than Todd Gurley’s career-high (30 attempts vs. South Carolina on September 7, 2013).

After picking Mississippi State to defeat Auburn, ESPN‘s Lee Corso wore his 50th different mascot head gear during his tenure on College GameDay.

Since 2009, Alabama has given up only 99 touchdowns. The next lowest? LSU with 143 and Florida with 145.

Notre Dame’s 50-43 win over North Carolina amounted to the most combined points totaled in one game, throughout their stadium’s history.

Ole Miss is off to their first 6-0 start since 1962.

Texas A&M set an SEC attendance record with 110,633 attendees in the Aggies 35-20 loss to Ole Miss.
