- Glen Coffee's 16.2 yards per carry set the Alabama record for highest average with a minimum of 10 attempts. The previous record was Santonio Beard's 14.1 against Tennessee in 2001.
- Coffee's total is the 4th highest in SEC history, trailing only Harvey Williams of LSU in 1987 (19.6), George Canale of Tennessee in 1962 (17.5), and Billy Baggett of LSU in 1950 (17.45).
- Coffee's 87 yard rush tied for the 4th longest TD run in Bama history, trailing Chris Anderson vs Temple in 1991 (96), Harry Gilmer vs Kentucky in 1945 (95), and Bobby Marlowe vs Georgia Tech in 1950 (92).
- With three TDs through Bama's first four games, Julio Jones is on pace to equal the school record of 10 TD receptions in a season held by Al Lary (1950), at least if you assume Bama goes to a bowl. If you assume an SEC championship game as well, we're up to 10.5, which we might as well round up to a school-record 11.
- With 41 points against Western Kentucky and 49 at Arkansas, Bama scored 40 points in consecutive games for only the 5th time in the post-Bryant era, and first time since 1993, when we tallied 43 against Arkansas and 56 against Lousiana Tech.
- Andre Smith was named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week. He was the co-winner of last year's Jacob's Trophy, given the SEC's best lineman, and is well on his way to a second honor.
