at Auburn 34, Alabama 28
Basically … In one of the most improbable endings in the history of college football Chris Davis returned a missed 57-yard field goal attempt, officially, 100 yards for a touchdown to give Auburn the shocking win. It looked like the game was going to overtime after Auburn’s Nick Marshall found a wide open Sammie Coates for a 39-yard touchdown with 32 seconds to play, but Alabama tried to get into scoring position and got what seemed like a big break at the time when a second was put back on the clock after a T.J. Yeldon run, but that led to the final big play. Before the final few minutes, the signature play appeared to be a 99-yard Amari Cooper touchdown catch that gave the Tide the lead, but four missed field goals, including a late one that would’ve made it a ten point lead, proved costly.
Nick Marshall started the scoring for the Tide with a 45-yard touchdown dash, but Alabama owned the second quarter with 21 straight points on two AJ McCarron touchdown passes and a one-yard touchdown run from Yeldon, but Auburn fought back with a one-yard Tre Mason run late in the first half and a 13-yard C.J. Uzomah touchdown catch early in the third to tie it up.

at LSU 31, Arkansas 27
Basically … Backed up to his own one-yard line, Anthony Jennings, in for an injured Zach Mettenberger, marched LSU to a game-winning touchdown with a 49-yard scoring pass to Travin Dural with just over a minute to play. Arkansas got two touchdown passes from Brandon Allen to Hunter Henry to overcome two first quarter touchdown runs from Terrence Magee and a 52-yard scoring dash from Jeremy Hill for a 27-21 lead taken late into the fourth quarter. LSU failed on a fourth down try, but later settled for a 37-yard Colby Delahoussaye field goal to get within range, and then Jennings worked his magic.

MSU scored first on a one-yard Josh Robinson run in the first quarter, but the offense sputtered throughout the game.
