Nerlens Noel eclipsed Anthony Davis' blocks total through the same amount of games (20) with a 12-block performance for the record books on Tuesday.
Saturday, Noel gets the chance to continue his push. He will need four blocks against Texas A&M to stay ahead of Davis on a game-to-game basis (Noel has 95 through 20; Davis had 93).
To help keep up, here's two graphs charting the game-to-game blocks progress by the two, as well as a table that shows what Noel will be up against if he's going to keep pace with Davis' numbers last season.

Finally, here's the game-by-game breakdown in table form -- including Davis' numbers that Noel will be trying to keep pace with in future games:
