Lynn Bowden Jr. wins the 2019-20 SEC Rushing Title

With the college football season coming to a close with LSU taking home the 2020 National Championship on Monday evening, Lynn Bowden Jr.’s status as the SEC’s rushing champion is now official.

During his junior campaign in Lexington, Bowden finished the year as the top rusher in the league with 1,468 total yards, topping the 1414-yard mark set by LSU’s Clyde Edwards-Helaire this season. To add to the ridiculousness of Bowden’s record, he managed a whopping 1,370 rushing yards in just eight games as Kentucky’s starting quarterback, which would have still put him at No. 2 overall behind Edwards-Helaire in seven fewer games.

Outside of pure rushing yards, Bowden also finished first in the SEC and eighth in the nation in yards from scrimmage with 1,816 total yards to go with 14 touchdowns and 139 yards per game.

As a team, Kentucky also led the SEC in rushing yards and touchdowns overall with 3,624 yards (278.77 YPG) and 36 rushing touchdowns, respectively. Ole Miss finished second in the conference with 3,015 rushing yards and 251.25 yards per contest.

And the scary part? Kentucky will be returning 60% of it next season with the likes of AJ Rose, Kavosiey Smoke, and Chris Rodrigez back in 2020.
