Several eye-opening performances across the SEC in Week 8. As we do every week, let's hand out a few helmet stickers:
Jonathan Allen, Alabama: The senior defensive end was a headache for Texas A&M all day, racking up six tackles, a sack, four quarterback hurries and a fumble return for a touchdown that helped the Crimson Tide pull away in their eventual 33-14 win. Allen's sack was highlight-worthy, as he leapt over a running back Superman-style to reach Trevor Knight.
Auburn's offensive line: The Tigers ran for a whopping 543 yards and seven touchdowns on 57 rushing attempts and you don't do that without some great play up front. Darius James, Alex Kozan, Austin Golson, Braden Smith and Robert Leff all get a helmet sticker for paving the way for a huge day, led by Kamryn Pettway's 192 yards, in a 56-3 rout of Arkansas.
Jake Bentley, South Carolina: The true freshman made his South Carolina debut, starting for the Gamecocks and turning in a solid performance, going 17-for-26 passing for 206 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in a 34-28 win over Massachussetts. Not bad for an 18-year-old who should be a senior in high school (Bentley graduated early and skipped his senior year to enroll at South Carolina).
Leonard Fournette, LSU: He looks pretty healthy again, as Fournette finished the night with 284 yards and three touchdowns on 16 carries. He got back on the highlight reel by running over Ole Miss safety Deontay Anderson and his first seven carries went for a whopping 249 yards to lead LSU to a 38-21 win. He broke LSU's single-game rushing record on his first eight carries.
Austin MacGinnis, Kentucky: The junior kicker connected on a 51-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Wildcats to a 40-38 win over Mississippi State and put Kentucky over the .500 mark overall (4-3) and in the SEC (3-2). MacGinnis finished with four field goals on the night and was 4-for-5 on his attempts.
