COLUMBIA, Mo. — Hobbled by a sprained left knee, Connor Shaw asked Steve Spurrier if he could play Saturday night at Missouri.

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Hobbled by a sprained left knee, Connor Shaw asked Steve Spurrier if he could play Saturday night at Missouri.

The South Carolina coach obliged, calling on Shaw in the third quarter with the Gamecocks down 17 and starter Dylan Thompson struggling.

Shaw threw for 201 yards and three touchdowns in relief, engineering three fourth-quarter drives and helping the Gamecocks score on their final five possessions to stun No. 5 Missouri 27-24 in two overtimes.

"Dylan played awfully well most of the time he's played," Spurrier said. "It was do or die. We had no chance in the division if we didn't win this one."

Elliott Fry's 40-yard field goal proved to be the game-winner after Missouri's Andrew Baggett clanked a 24-yard attempt off the left goal post.

"He's a competitor," coach Gary Pinkel said of his kicker. "You know, that's his job and it's his responsibility. Last week, he made five. . It's not one guy here. We all could have done something different to help win that football game."

Shaw extended the game in the first overtime with a 15-yard touchdown pass on fourth down in the Gamecocks' first overtime to match the Tigers' Marcus Murphy's 1-yard scamper.

Missouri (7-1, 3-1) could have all but locked up the SEC East with a victory, instead South Carolina (6-2, 4-2) moves to within one game of the Tigers for the division lead, with home games against Mississippi State and Florida remaining.

Shaw engineered fourth-quarter scoring drives of 65, 69 and 63 yards, and the Gamecocks knotted the score at 17 on a two-yard reception by Nick Jones with 42 seconds remaining. Ellington scored his first touchdown on a 6-yard catch with 12:13 remaining, and Elliott Fry added a 20-yard field goal with 5:03 left.

No. 11 Auburn 45, FAU 10

At Auburn, Ala., Jeremy Johnson threw two long touchdown passes to Sammie Coates after replacing injured starter Nick Marshall and Auburn overwhelmed Florida Atlantic.

Marshall returned to the Auburn sideline, but not the game, as Johnson threw a 67-yard touchdown pass to Coates later in the quarter.
