FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) _ Tre Mason rushed for 168 yards and four touchdowns as Auburn earned first-year coach Gus Malzahn a win in his return to Arkansas.

Mason scored on runs of 9, 4 and 5 and 12 yards as the Tigers (8-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) won their fifth in a row in Malzahn’s first game in Fayetteville since leaving the Razorbacks as an assistant following the 2006 season.

Auburn’s Nick Marshall, returning from a shoulder injury, accounted for 177 yards of total offense, including an 88-yard touchdown throw to Sammie Coates.

Jonathan Williams had 104 yards rushing and Alex Collins added 92 on the ground for Arkansas (3-6, 0-5), which has now lost six in a row. It’s the longest losing streak for the Razorbacks since a seven-game stretch in 1990.

No. 9 CLEMSON 59, VIRGINIA 10

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) _ Tajh Boyd threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score and Clemson broke the game open with three touchdowns in the last 4:18 of the first half.

The Hampton, Va., native became the Atlantic Coast Conference’s career leader in touchdown-making with a 33-yard pass to Sammy Watkins to start the scoring for the Tigers (8-1, 6-1 ACC). It broke a tie at 112 TDs with North Carolina State’s Philip Rivers. Boyd later added TD throws of 10 yards to Roderick McDowell and 96 yards to Watkins, and scored on a 1-yard run 13 seconds before halftime to make it 35-7.

Virginia (2-7, 0-5) lost its sixth in a row and for the 15th time in its last 19 games. It also suffered its second 59-10 loss at home this season, having lost by the same score against No. 2 Oregon in the second week of the season.

No. 10 MISSOURI 31, TENNESSEE 3

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) _ Maty Mauk threw three touchdown passes and ran for another, leading No. 10 Missouri’s dominant and resilient effort in a 31-3 victory over Tennessee Saturday night.

The Tigers (8-1, 4-1 SEC) responded smartly a week after squandering a 17-point cushion in the fourth quarter of a double-overtime loss to South Carolina. Andrew Baggett banged another chip-shot field goal attempt off the left goalpost, eerily similar to his game-ending misfire a week earlier, but instead of heartbreak they still took a 24-3 cushion into halftime.

Missouri forced three turnovers and committed none in Mauk’s best game in three starts in place of injured James Franklin. Mauk had 114 yards on 13 carries, and threw touchdown passes to Dorial Green-Beckham, L’Damian Washington and Marcus Lucas in the first half. Franklin (shoulder sprain) warmed up before the game.

Tennessee (4-5, 1-4) is 0-4 on the road, all but one of them blowouts.

No. 14 SOUTH CAROLINA 34, MISSISSIPPI STATE 16

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) _ Connor Shaw threw for four touchdowns, Mike Davis ran for 128 yards to move past 1,000 yards this season and South Carolina tied a school record with its 15th straight home victory.
