OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel has the Heisman Trophy. Alabama's A.J. McCarron has the national championships.

Those two are the Southeastern Conference's most famous quarterbacks, but they're just the main headliners -- there's a host of talented signal-callers that have offenses rolling across the league

Georgia's Aaron Murray, LSU's Zach Mettenberger, Mississippi's Bo Wallace and South Carolina's Connor Shaw are among the many quarterbacks who have had a good start this season.

Last week's Manziel-McCarron showdown, whose teams combined for 1,196 total yards in the Tide's 49-42 victory, demonstrated what a banner year this has been so far for SEC offenses.

The gaudy stats are popping up everywhere.

Seven SEC teams averaged at least 30 points per game in 2012. So far this season, 10 teams are above that threshold.
