Four 1,000-Yard Rushers Will Be Back This Fall

The folks at The Mobile Press-Register have pointed out today that for just the second time in league history four 1,000-yard rushers will be back in action across SEC stadiums this fall.

The only other time four SEC backs returned after 1,000-yard seasons was in 1988 when five such backs came back.Ā  Those rushers were Bobby Humphrey of Alabama, Lars Tate of Georgia, Harvey Williams of LSU, Reggie Cobb of Tennessee, and some guy named Emmitt Smith at Florida.

Here are this year’s returning 1,000-yard backs:
