This was a very interesting and entertaining college football Saturday. There was a lot of Top 10 upsets which means there will some movement in the standings,
Tennessee Volunteers defeats #11 South Carolina Gamecocks – Vols kicker Michael Palardy made a 19-yard field goal as time expired Saturday for a 23-21 victory over the Gamecocks that ended the Volunteers’ 19-game losing streak against ranked opponents. The loss may have proved doubly painful for South Carolina, which had a four-game winning streak snapped. Quarterback Connor Shaw left the game with a sprained knee after being sacked by Marlon Walls and Daniel McCullers with less than five minutes remaining.
Vandy stuns #15 Georgia with a fabulous comeback – Vanderbilt Commodore’s head coach James Franklin has his first upset of a Top 25 opponent and doing so most likely shuts down the Bulldogs chances for another trip back to the SEC Championship game. Jerron Seymour ran for a 13-yard touchdown with 2:53 left, and Vanderbilt rallied from a 13-point deficit by scoring 17 unanswered points in the fourth quarter Saturday for a 31-27 victory.
Auburn won a thriller over the Aggies – Tigers QB Nick Marshall accounted for four scores and #24 Auburn battered Johnny Manziel in the Tigers’ 45-41 upset of No. 7 Texas A&M on Saturday. Auburn running back Tre Mason‘s 5-yard score with less than 2 minutes to play was first placed at the 1, but it was reviewed and ruled a touchdown. Auburn didn’t win a single Southeastern Conference game last season.
