WILD SEC FINISH
Gus Malzahn was ready to try anything to get a win for his Auburn Tigers.
Malzahn relinquished offensive play-calling duties. Following his daughters’ advice, he traded his usual game-day visor for a cap. And then, when the clock expired and LSU players were celebrating an apparent last-second win, the Auburn coach put all his faith in a ruling he couldn’t control.
Daniel Carlson kicked six field goals and Auburn beat No. 18 LSU 18-13 after officials ruled Danny Etling’s apparent last-gasp scoring pass came after time expired .
Etling rolled to his right and found D.J. Shark in the back of the end zone on a 15-yard pass, setting off a short-lived celebration by LSU players.
The celebration shifted to the Auburn sideline and the similarly dramatic turn in emotions.
Tennessee delivered the comeback this time, taking out 11 years’ worth of frustration on Florida in the process.
Joshua Dobbs accounted for five second-half touchdowns and No. 14 Tennessee erased a 21-point deficit to beat No. 19 Florida 38-28 and end their 11-game losing streak in the annual series.
It is Tennessee’s first win Florida since 2004. The Volunteers had lost to Florida by one point each of the last two years despite leading in the fourth quarter of both games.
Florida was so confident it would continue the streak that Gators cornerback Quincy Wilson boldly said this week that “nobody has ever seen a duck pull a truck. Florida Gators are going to win, simple as that.”
Tennessee silenced the Gators by reeling off 38 consecutive points.
Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight took a beating last week against Colorado. This week, he spent most of the day standing back and watching his teammates do all the work.
De’Veon Smith led an overwhelming ground game with 107 yards rushing and a touchdown and Karan Higdon ran for two scores and No. 4 Michigan routed Penn State 49-10 in both teams’ Big Ten opener.
Michigan (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) finished with 326 yards rushing and scored six of its seven touchdowns on the ground. Five different backs scored on the ground.
