Week 13 SEC and ACC football scores right here. Go here for all other college football.
Auburn Tigers 28, Alabama Crimson Tide 27: The Tide had the Tigers on the ropes, down 24-0 in the second quarter, but Cam Newton convinced whoever he hasn’t yet convinced that he’s the best college football player we’ve seen since, oh, maybe Herschel Walker or so.
Boston College Eagles 16, Syracuse Orange 7: BC freshman RB Andre Williams ran for a career-high (by 77 yards) 185 while the Eagles defense did its usual form-tackly thing. Senior comeback hero Mark Herzlich got an interception in his final regular season game.
Virginia Tech Hokies 37, Virginia Cavaliers 7: The Hokies are on one of the nation’s hottest streaks, winning ten straight. They’ve also won seven straight over the Cavs. QB Tyrod Taylor passed for 176 and ran for another 24.
South Florida Bulls 23, Miami Hurricanes 20 OT: You’re telling me the ACC made it through an entire weekend of college football with only one embarrassing final score? And even that one could kind of be blamed on Jacory Harris looking rusty in his return and Stephen Morris looking like a freshman? Despite the QB challenges Miami has faced almost all year, coach Randy Shannon was fired shortly after last night’s loss.
Maryland Terrapins 38, N.C. State Wolfpack 31: With the Terps surprising win here, FSU wins the ACC Atlantic Division. Despite only 20 rushing yards, Maryland rose the suddenly golden arm of Danny O’Brien, who outpassed Pack star Russell Wilson by over 100 yards.
Florida St. Seminoles 31, Florida Gators 7: Was yesterday a good day to be a Noles fan or what? Demolishing their main rival after six straight losses, earning a spot in the ACC Championship Game, and seeing Miami fire its coach?
Arkansas Razorbacks 31, LSU Tigers 23: Arky likely snatched away LSU’s BCS bowl bid, outgaining their rivals by 170 yards and some Les Milesly coaching by Bobby Petrino, who went for it on fourth down late.
Mississippi St. Bulldogs 31, Mississippi Rebels 23: Missy State made sure they finished the season with a record opposite that of their flailing Egg Bowl rivals. WR LaDarius Perkins finished with 140 yards and a touchdown.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons 34, Vanderbilt Commodores 13: In Robbie Caldwell’s last game as Vandy’s coach, Wake blew out the Commodores despite being outgained by 144 yards thanks to … um, two turnovers? The box score doesn’t tell the whole story here. Yes, I apologize for not watching any of Wake-Vandy.
Georgia Bulldogs 42, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 34: A game of missed opportunities for both teams, as Tech failed to score off of Georgia’s many turnovers and Georgia failed to press their many advantages. A late missed extra point gave the Dawgs the lead, with the Jackets allowing a freebie touchdown to try for an eight-point drive. The Dawgs are now bowl eligible and have won two straight over Paul Johnson’s Jackets.
