Mississippi romps at A&M; Alabama holds o Arkansas

Bo Wallace ran for two scores and threw a touchdown pass and Mississippi's defense added two scores to help the third-ranked Rebels remain undefeated with a 35-20 victory at No. 14 Texas A&M on Saturday night. Wallace gave Mississippi (6-0, 3-0 SEC) an early lead with touchdown runs on consecutive possessions in the first quarter. Then Cody Prewitt returned an interception 75 yards for a score in the second quarter to make it 21-0.

LSU 30, Florida 27 * Colby Delahoussaye hit a 50-yard field goal with 3 seconds remaining, making up for a missed extra point, as Louisiana State (5-2, 1-2) won on the road to avoid its first 0-3 start in Southeastern Conference play since 1999.
