    Nov. 15 South Carolina 23, at Florida 20 OT 
    And You Care Because … In overtime, Florida got a 35-yard Austin Hardin field goal, but South Carolina got a four-yard Dylan Thompson scoring run for the win. The Gators struggled on special teams with a missed fourth quarter field goal and a late blocked punt that led to a USC touchdown with 12 seconds to play – Mike Davis recovered his own fumble in the end zone – to force overtime. Florida got down 10-0 before going on a 17-pound run, with Matt Jones running for a one-yard score and Demarcus Robinson making an 11-yard touchdown catch, but special teams and a stalled offense proved to be too tough to overcome. 
    What Else? South Carolina QB Dylan Thompson completed 22-of-41 passes for 206 yards, and ran for the game-winning score 
    – Florida QB Treon Harris completed 5-of-11 passes for 60 yards and a score, and ran 20 times for 111 yards 
    – Penalties: Florida 10 for 75 yards – South Carolina 6 for 67 
    – Total yards: South Carolina 301 – Florida 278

    Nov. 15 Missouri 34, at Texas A&M 27 
    And You Care Because … Russell Hansbrough ran for two touchdowns scoring on dashes from 49 and 45 yards out in the third quarter, and Ish Witter added a 16-yard scoring dash as Missouri took a 34-20 lead into the fourth. Kyle Allen threw three touchdown passes for Texas A&M, finding Josh Reynolds for scores from 24 and 56 yards out, and he brought the Aggies within seven in the fourth on a four-yard pass to Malcome Kennedy, but the Tiger defense was able to hang on.

    – Texas A&M QB Kyle Allen completed 24-of-35 passes for 237 yards and three touchdowns with an interception

    Nov. 15 at Alabama 25, Mississippi State 20 
    And You Care Because … The defense forced three turnovers and Amari Cooper, Derrick Henry and T.J. Yeldon each came up with short scores as Alabama controlled the game throughout – mostly. The Tide got up 19-0 in the first half on a one-yard Henry run, but the offense started to stall in the second half as MSU slowly came back with two Evan Sobiesk field goals and a four-yard Fred Ross catch to pull within six. Just when the momentum started to change, the Tide wen 76 yards in 15 plays closing out with Yeldon’s seven-yard touchdown run with just over eight minutes to play. The Bulldogs got their final score on a four-yard Jameon Lewis catch with 15 seconds to play, but Alabama recovered the onside kick. 
    What Else? Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott completed 27-of-48 passes for 290 yards and two touchdowns with three interceptions, and ran 22 times for a team-high 82 yards 
    – Alabama QB Blake Sims completed 19-of-31 passes for 211 yards and a score, and ran four times for 18 yards 
    – Total yards: Mississippi State 428 – Alabama 335 
    – Turnovers: Mississippi State 3 – Alabama 0

    Nov. 15 at Arkansas 17, LSU 0 
    And You Care Because … Arkansas ended its 17 game SEC losing streak as Jonathan Williams ran for a one-yard score in the second quarter and Alex Collins ran for a five-yard touchdown in the fourth. Adam McFain started out the scoring with a 32-yard field goal on the opening drive for all the points the Hogs would need. LSU managed just 123 yards of total offense. 
    What Else? Arkansas RB Jonathan Williams and Alex Collins combined for 34 carries for 101 yards and two touchdowns

    Nov. 15 at Tennessee 50, Kentucky 16 
    And You Care Because … Kentucky scored first on a 32-yard Austin MacGinnis field goal, and then it was all Tennessee scoring 30 straight points helped by a Joshua Dobbs nine-yard run and two touchdown passes to Von Pearson from 21 and 16 yards out. The defense was part of the act, too, as Von Pearson returned a pick 23 yards for a touchdown late in the first. Aaron Medley connected on three field goals for the Vols, and Dobbs opened up the third quarter on a 52-yard touchdown pass to Jason Croom. 
    What Else? Tennessee QB Joshua Dobbs completed 19-of-27 passes for 297 yards and three touchdowns, and ran ten times for 48 yards and a score

    Nov. 15 at Georgia 34, Auburn 7 
    And You Care Because … Auburn started out the scoring on the opening drive, getting a 26-yard touchdown run from Cameron Artis-Payne, and then it was all Georgia and all about the running game, as Nick Chubb ran for touchdowns from nine and 11 yards out, and in his return, Todd Gurley tore off a three-yard touchdown dash as part of 34 unanswered points. The Auburn offense was shut down cold after the opening drive, coming up with just 222 yards the rest of the way with three turnovers. Marshall Morgan added two field goals and Malcolm Mitchell came up with a seven-yard touchdown catch. 
    What Else? Georgia RB Nick Chubb ran 19 times for 144 yards and two touchdowns and caught two passes for a team-leading 48 yards, and Todd Gurley, before leaving in the fourth with a knee injury, ran 29 times for 138 yards and a score
