Alabama's defense set the SEC championship game record for fewest rushing yards allowed by giving up exactly zero to Florida. The record was 15 yards, by Tennessee's defense against Auburn in 1997 and by Alabama's defense against Florida last season. This was the first time since 2011 that Florida did not have positive rushing yards in a game (that was against Georgia).
