Jacob Skinner’s 57-yard second-quarter punt matched his longest of the year. His career long is a 58-yarder two years ago against Florida. He later had a 52-yarder against Georgia, giving him five 50-yard punts this year.
Darren McFadden’s 70-yard touchdown run matched his season-long rush of 70 for a score at Alabama.
McFadden’s 70-yard rush put him over 100 yards for the game, giving him three straight 100-yard games against Louisiana-Monroe, Auburn and Georgia.

McFadden had 125 yards and two scores on 11 carries against ULM, 108 and two scores on 13 rushes against Auburn, and 190 and two scores on 31 rushes against Georgia.
