AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's Javier Arenas set the Southeastern
Conference record for career punt returns and moved closer to the
NCAA mark.

Arenas raced 56 yards into Auburn territory midway through the
second quarter to break the mark of 1,695 yards set by Vanderbilt's
Lee Nalley from 1947-49. He had an 11-yard return earlier.

Arenas came in 37 yards behind Nalley and 104 from the NCAA mark
set by Texas Tech's Wes Welker in 2003.

He set the SEC record with his seventh punt return for a
touchdown a week earlier against Chattanooga, one shy of the NCAA
record.
