No. 3 Auburn Outlasts No. 5 Mizzou, 59-42

Henry Josey and Dorial Green-Beckham had standout performances offensively, but they were not enough as No. 3 Auburn outlasted No. 5 Missouri, 59-42, to win the SEC Championship inside the Georgia Dome. Mizzou (11-2) awaits its bowl selection Sunday night. It is Auburn's (12-1) first SEC title since 2010. On a day that his inspirational comeback story was profiled nationally on ESPN's College GameDay, Josey had his second-highest output of the season, rushing for 123 yards on nine carries. Green-Beckham caught a pair of touchdowns from James Franklin on the way to a career-high 144 yards on six catches. Auburn's Tre Mason earned MVP honors with an SEC Championship Game records of 304 yards and four touchdowns on 46 carries, scoring on runs of 7, 3, 13 an 1 yards.
