    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.

AUBURN, AL (RNN) - Earnest Ross' four free throws with 1:35 left helped Missouri come from behind and overtake Auburn for a 70-68 win on Saturday.

The Tigers (13-2) were trailing 67-66 when Ross made his first of two late-game trips to the line. He nailed them to put his team ahead and extended the lead to three points a minute later.

A 1-of-2 trip to the line for Chris Denson pulled Auburn (8-5) within one, and Mizzou turned the ball over after rebounding the second missed free throw.

Tajh Shamsid-Deen's attempt at a long inbounds pass was swatted away, ending the game.

Jordan Clarkson scored 20 points for Mizzou. Ross had 16, and Jabari Brown had 15.

K.T. Harrell scored a game-high 27 points for the Tigers. Shamsid-Deen scored 13, and Denson scored 11.

Auburn had a hot hand all night, but didn't give itself many opportunities at second shots. Mizzou held a 44-28 rebounding advantage.
