Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - SPORTS -

AUBURN, ALA. » Cole Tracy kicked a 42-yard field goal on the fi­nal play to give No. 12 LSU a 22-21 vic­tory over No. 7 Auburn on Satur­day in their SEC opener.

Joe Bur­row led LSU (3-0) down the field in the fi­nal min­utes with clutch plays and two pass in­ter­fer­ence calls against Auburn (2-1). That set up Tracy’s field goal that was al­most right down the mid­dle and sent LSU play­ers swarm­ing onto the field to cel­e­brate.

Bur­row hit Der­rick Dil­lon over the out­stretched arms of Auburn line­backer De­shaun Davis for a 71yard touch­down strike with 8:18 left. Bur­row’s two-point at­tempt failed, leav­ing Auburn up 21-19. BYU 24, (6) WIS­CON­SIN 21 » Squally Canada ran for 118 yards and two touch­downs and BYU (21) handed mis­take-prone Wis­con­sin (2-1) its first non­con­fer­ence home loss since 2003.

The Cougars tossed in a trick play, too, when re­ceiver Al­eva Hifo found open tight end Moroni Laulu-Pu­tu­tau for a 31-yard TD pass in the sec­ond quar­ter.


17» Jalen Elliott knocked the ball loose from Van­der­bilt (2-1) re­ceiver Kal­ija Lip­scomb with 1:07 re­main­ing to give Notre Dame (30) a fourth-down stop.

Kyle Shur­mur threw for 326 yards and a TD for Van­der­bilt, ral­ly­ing his team from a 16-3 half­time deficit. His fourth-and-4 pass from the Ir­ish 31 to Lip­scomb, who caught 11 passes, was nicely thrown and the re­ceiver al­most hung on at the 11. But Elliott, with help from the ground, knocked the ball loose and in­com­plete.

(2) CLEM­SON 38, GE­OR­GIA SOUTHERN7» A week of worry at Clem­son (3-0) over an ap­proach­ing hur­ri­cane ended with a vic­tory over Ge­or­gia South­ern (2-1) in front of a full crowd.
