No. 16 Auburn 48, No. 5 Alabama 45

AUBURN, Ala. — Shaun Shivers scored on an 11-yard run with 8:08 left to put ahead and an­other failed field goal by Alabama in the Iron Bowl wiped away the Crim­son Tide’s play­off hopes.

Auburn (9-3, 5-3 South­east­ern Con­fer­ence) sur­vived a fi­nal, marathon Crim­son Tide drive when Joseph Bulo­vas’ 30-yard field goal at­tempt hit the left up­right with 2 min­utes left.

Auburn couldn’t get a first down on JaTarvi­ous Whit­low’s three runs while Alabama (10-2, 6-2) burned its fi­nal two time­outs. But the Tide was called for il­le­gal sub­sti­tu­tion af­ter the Tigers lined up for a punt, set­ting off a fist­pump­ing cel­e­bra­tion for coach Gus Malzahn.

No. 1 LSU 50, Texas A&M 7

BA­TON ROUGE, La. — Joe Bur­row padded his Heis­man Tro­phy re­sume with 352 yards and three touch­downs pass­ing and beat Texas A&M for its first un­beaten reg­u­lar season since 2011.

Bur­row’s night was high­lighted by a deep, pin-point ac­cu­rate pass on a 78-yard touch­down strike to Ja­Marr Chase, who had 197 yards and two touch­downs on seven catches.

Bur­row has 4,366 yards and 44 touch­downs pass­ing this season, smash­ing LSU sin­gle­sea­son records in both cat­e­gories. Bur­row’s yards pass­ing to­tal also broke the SEC record, which had stood since 1998, when former Ken­tucky quar­ter­back Tim Couch passed for 4,275 yards.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — J.K. Dob­bins ran for four touch­downs, Justin Fields threw four scor­ing passes and No. 2 Ohio State beat No. 10 Michi­gan for a school­record eighth straight win in the se­ries.

AT­LANTA — Jake Fromm threw four touch­down passes and Ge­or­gia cruised into the South­east­ern Con­fer­ence cham­pi­onship game with its big­gest win ever over its state ri­val.

The Bull­dogs (11-1) were 28-point fa­vorites over the Yel­low Jackets (3-9) and this one was never in doubt, even as Ge­or­gia strug­gled a bit of­fen­sively, fum­bled the ball away three times, dealt with in­jury woes, and failed to cover an on­side kick.

No. 6 Utah 45, Colorado 15

SALT LAKE CITY — Brant Kuithe scored three touch­downs and No. 6 Utah is locked up a spot in the Pac-12 cham­pi­onship game for the se­cond con­sec­u­tive season with a vic­tory over Colorado.

Florida scored touch­downs on four of its first five pos­ses­sions, need­ing two fourth-down con­ver­sions to get the first two, and was able to start cel­e­brat­ing be­fore half­time. Re­ceiver Kadar­ius Toney taunted FSU play­ers by pos­ing and point­ing at a score­board as they left the field at half­time.

Ore­gon State (5-7, 4-5) was de­nied a bid for bowl el­i­gi­bil­ity in coach Jonathan Smith’s se­cond year. The Beavers haven’t made a post­sea­son ap­pear­ance since 2013.

AV High grad Mykael Wright re­turned the kick­off 98 yards for a touch­down to put the Ducks up 10-3. It was Wright’s se­cond kick­off re­turn for a TD this season and the long­est in the his­tory of the Civil War.
