Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

The Southeastern Conference lived up to its rugged reputation on Saturday when Top 25 teams LSU, Texas A&M, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida all lost conference games.

No. 24 Auburn battered Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel in a 45-41 win over No. 7 Texas A&M to avenge the 63-21 shellacking the Aggies put on the Tigers last season.

Mississippi intercepted LSU's Zach Mettenberger three times and Andrew Ritter kicked a 41-yard field goal with 2 seconds left as the Rebels stunned the sixth-ranked Tigers 27-24.

Tennessee's Michael Palardy kicked a field goal as time expired to beat No. 11 South Carolina 23-21 and snap the Volunteers' 19-game losing streak to ranked teams.

Vanderbilt dashed No. 15 Georgia's faint hopes of a return to the SEC championship game, scoring 17 straight points to rally from a 13-point deficit and beat the Bulldogs 31-27.

No. 14 Missouri beat No. 22 Florida 36-17 in another matchup of ranked SEC teams.
