COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Nick Marshall accounted for four scores and No. 24 Auburn battered Johnny Manziel in a 45-41 win over No. 7 Texas A&M on Saturday.
Tre Mason’s 5-yard score with less than two minutes to play was first ruled down at the 1, but it was reviewed and ruled a touchdown.
A&M (5-2, 2-2 SEC) had a last chance, but Manziel was sacked by Dee Ford on fourth down to secure the win.
Manziel threw for 454 yards and four touchdowns and ran for a fifth score, but also had two interceptions and missed a series in the fourth quarter with an apparent injury to his right arm or shoulder before returning.
No. 13 Stanford 24,
No. 9 UCLA 10
STANFORD, Calif. — Tyler Gaffney ran for 171 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 13 Stanford smothered Brett Hundley and ninth-ranked UCLA.
Kevin Hogan threw for 227 yards and a spectacular touchdown to Kodi Whitfield as the Cardinal (6-1, 4-1) regrouped again after losing at Utah last week. Stanford has not lost consecutive games since October 2009.
Hundley completed 24 of 39 passes for 192 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions to Jordan Richards — the second with a little more than 2 minutes remaining to seal Stanford’s victory.
No. 11 South Carolina 21
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Michael Palardy made a 19-yard field goal as time expired Saturday to give Tennessee a 23-21 victory over No. 11 South Carolina that ended the Volunteers’ 19-game losing streak against ranked opponents.
South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw left the game after being sacked by Marlon Walls and Daniel McCullers with less than five minutes remaining. Team officials appeared to be looking at his left knee while he was on the sideline.
Tennessee got into field-goal range on a spectacular 39-yard catch by freshman Marquez North. Four consecutive runs by Marlin Lane got the Vols to the South Carolina 2 and set up the field goal.
No. 14 Missouri 36, No. 22 Florida 17
COLUMBIA, Mo. — Maty Mauk threw for 295 yards in his first career start and Andrew Baggett converted five field goals to help No. 14 Missouri defeat No. 22 Florida and open a two-game lead in the SEC East Division.
With James Franklin watching on the sideline in street clothes, Mauk put any doubts to rest about whether he was ready on the first play of the game with a 41-yard pass to L’Damian Washington and then a 20-yard toss to Bud Sasser for a 7-0 lead just 22 seconds in.
Missouri (7-0, 3-0) outgained the Gators 500-151 and became the first conference opponent in 14 games to score at least 21 points against them. The Tigers bullied (4-3, 3-2) Florida at the line of scrimmage, sacking quarterback Tyler Murphy six times and flushing him out of the pocket throughout the game.
Vanderbilt 31, No. 15 Georgia 27
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Jerron Seymour ran for a 13-yard touchdown with 2:53 left, and Vanderbilt rallied from a 13-point deficit by scoring 17 unanswered points in the fourth quarter Saturday to upset No. 15 Georgia.
The Commodores (4-3, 1-3) got their first Southeastern Conference win this season and their first victory over Georgia in Nashville since 1991. They also snapped a six-game skid to the Bulldogs.
Georgia (4-3, 3-2) lost its second straight after failing to hold a 27-14 lead. Brendan Douglas fumbled after a catch with 1:59 left, and Aaron Murray was intercepted on the final play.
No. 16 Texas Tech 37,
West Virginia 27
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Davis Webb threw two touchdown passes and No. 16 Texas Tech scored 21 unanswered points in the second half to beat West Virginia.
In his first road start, Webb completed 36 of 50 passes for 462 yards. He became the first Red Raiders freshman to surpass 400 yards passing in each of his first two starts.
Texas Tech’s Ryan Bustin kicked three field goals and Kenny Williams had a pair of 1-yard touchdown runs, including the go-ahead score with 9:20 left in the game.
No. 18 Oklahoma 34, Kansas 19
LAWRENCE, Kan. — Blake Bell threw for 131 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 18 Oklahoma finally awoke from its Red River rout hangover to beat lowly Kansas.
The Sooners (6-1, 3-1 Big 12), whose national championship aspirations were cast aside by Texas last weekend, stumbled through the first quarter and found themselves in a 13-0 hole.
But behind Bell’s steady play, a stingy pass defense and a 49-yard touchdown toss from wide receiver Lacoltan Bester to Sterling Shepard on an end-around play, the Sooners scored 25 straight points on their way to winning their ninth straight over the Jayhawks.
No. 21 Oklahoma State 24,
STILLWATER, Okla. — Clint Chelf completed 10 of 25 passes for 178 yards and an interception and No. 21 Oklahoma State used a quarterback change to earn a win over TCU.
Josh Stewart added 10 catches for 141 yards and had a 95-yard punt return for a touchdown, giving the Cowboys (5-1, 2-1 Big 12 Conference) enough offense to celebrate a homecoming victory.
Chelf replaced J.W. Walsh at quarterback after the sophomore threw his second interception of the first half, an ill-advised throw into the middle of the end zone. Walsh finished 9-of-18 for 115 yards and two interceptions.
No. 23 Northern Illinois 31,
Central Michigan 17
MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. — Jordan Lynch rushed for 316 yards, an FBS record for a quarterback, and No. 23 Northern Illinois stayed unbeaten Saturday with a 31-17 victory at Central Michigan.
Lynch had three rushing touchdowns and was 20 for 30 through the air for 155 yards and another score to help the Huskies (7-0, 3-0 Mid-American) extend the nation’s best conference winning streak to 20 games.
He broke the rushing record held by former Northern Illinois quarterback Stacey Robinson, who had 308 against Fresno State on Oct. 6, 1990.
