Missouri took control of the SEC East and a new contender emerged in the SEC West.

A week after knocking off Georgia on the road, No. 14 Missouri followed it up by blowing out No. 22 Florida 36-17 in Columbia, Mo.

In College Station, Texas, No. 24 Auburn used a late score to beat Johnny Manziel and No. 7 Texas A&M 45-41.

It was a Saturday filled with upsets in the Southeastern Conference and most played in favor of Missouri. The Tigers (7-0, 3-0) manhandled the Gators with backup quarterback Maty Mauk making his first start.

Furthering Missouri's cause, Vanderbilt rallied to beat No. 15 Georgia 31-27 in Nashville, Tenn., and Tennessee kicked a last-second field goal to beat No. 11 South Carolina 23-21.

The result is Missouri is the only team in the division that has lost less than two games. The Tigers outgained Florida 500-151, not missing a beat without injured quarterback James Franklin.

Auburn, which didn't win an SEC game last season, suddenly looks like a it could be in the mix for a West title. The Tigers (6-1, 3-1) won a back-and-forth game with A&M (5-2, 2-2), with Tre Mason scoring the go-ahead touchdown in the final two minutes.

Manziel threw for 454 yards, accounted for five touchdowns, left the game for a series with a shoulder injury and threw two interceptions for A&M.


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Carlos Hyde ran for 149 yards, including 106 yards and two touchdowns in the second half, to lead Ohio State to a victory over Iowa.

It was the Buckeyes' 19th consecutive victory, the most in the nation and tying the second-best streak in school history.

But it didn't come easy. The Hawkeyes (4-3, 1-2 Big Ten) dominated offensively in the first half and led 21-14 at the break behind the passing of Jake Rudock and running of Mark Weisman and Damon Bullock.

Hyde tied it with the first rushing TD against Iowa this season on Ohio State's first drive of the third quarter, and the Buckeyes took over.

No. 24 AUBURN 45, No. 7 TEXAS A&M 41

Nick Marshall accounted for four scores and Auburn battered Johnny Manziel in a win over Texas A&M.

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.

Marshall threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 100 yards and two more scores for Auburn (6-1, 3-1), which lost 63-21 to the Aggies last season.

No. 13 STANFORD 24, No. 9 UCLA 10

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) -- Tyler Gaffney ran for 171 yards and two touchdowns, and Stanford smothered Brett Hundley and 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.

Stanford hurried Hundley all afternoon to slow down UCLA's up-tempo offense.

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. UCLA (5-1, 2-1) has not started 6-0 since 2005.


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Michael Palardy made a 19-yard field goal as time expired to give Tennessee a victory over 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.

Tennessee (4-3, 1-2 SEC) hadn't beaten a ranked foe since a 31-13 victory over No. 21 South Carolina on Oct. 31, 2009. The Vols also had lost 16 of their last 18 SEC games.
