In his third career start, Shaw struggled for South Carolina (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference).
Shaw completed 21 of 31 passes for 160 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
South Carolina’s Marcus Lattimore came into the game averaging an SEC-best 129.8 rushing yards per game, but only managed 39 against the hard-hitting Bulldogs. He left the game in the fourth quarter with an leg injury. Coach Steve Spurrier said it was a sprained knee, though a full evaluation hadn’t been done.
Mississippi State (3-4, 0-4) was driving late in the game, but Tyler Russell’s pass was intercepted by D.J. Swearinger with 1:45 remaining.
Ohio State 17, No. 16 Illinois 7
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) _ Daniel Herron, who hadn’t played since the Sugar Bowl in January because of NCAA suspensions, ran for 114 yards and a touchdown in his return to Ohio State.
With true freshman Braxton Miller at quarterback, the struggling offense of Ohio State (4-3, 2-1 Big Ten) counted on Herron against Illinois (6-1, 2-1). The Buckeyes didn’t complete a pass until Miller hit Jake Stoneburner for a fourth-quarter touchdown and a 17-0 lead.
The Buckeyes’ defense forced three turnovers and turned two of them into their only touchdowns. Herron’s 12-yard touchdown run followed an interception by Bradley Roby and put Ohio State up 10-0 in the third quarter.
Nathan Scheelhaase was 20 of 34 for 169 yards, two interceptions and a late TD pass.
No. 21 Texas A&M 55, No. 20 Baylor 28
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) _ Ryan Tannehill threw for 415 yards and a career-high six touchdown passes and Ryan Swope caught four scores for Texas A&M.
Baylor’s Robert Griffin III threw for a school-record 430 yards and three touchdowns. Griffin is the third quarterback this season to set a school record against the Aggies’ worst-in-the-nation pass defense.
Texas A&M (4-2, 2-1 Big 12), has won three in a row over the Bears and the loss leaves Baylor (4-2, 1-2) without a win against its longtime rival at Kyle Field since 1984. The Bears may not get another chance for some time with the Aggies leaving for the Southeastern Conference in July.
No. 23 Michigan State 28, No. 11 Michigan 14
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) _ Keshawn Martin scored twice in the third quarter on similar lunges to the end zone, and Michigan State beat Michigan for the fourth straight year.View Entire Story
