Ole Miss upsets No. 6 LSU

(Continued)

OXFORD, Miss. —

Tajh Boyd threw two interceptions for Clemson, and his first-quarter fumble was returned 37 yards for a touchdown by Mario Edwards. Clemson (6-1, 4-1) turned it over a season-high four times, including on the first play from scrimmage.

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: 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.

Tennessee 23, No. 11 S. Carolina 21: 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.
