Here is the latest SEC sports news from The Associated Press

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Joe Burrow passed for 393 yards and three touchdowns and No. 1 LSU snapped an eight-game losing streak to No. 2 Alabama with a 46-41 victory. The Tigers are no longer second fiddle in the SEC West, or maybe in the playoff rankings.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Jake Fromm threw two touchdown passes to George Pickens and Georgia posted its third shutout by dominating Missouri 27-0. The Tigers were without quarterback Kelly Bryant and top wide receiver Johnathon Johnson. Missouri suffered its third straight loss.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Kyle Trask threw for a career-high 363 yards and three touchdowns _ the best passing performance by a Florida quarterback since Tim Tebow’s college finale _ and the 10th-ranked Gators overcame a lackluster start to thump Vanderbilt 56-0 in the Swamp. It was Florida’s third shutout of the season.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Jarrett Guarantano threw two third-quarter touchdown passes for the lead that Tennessee’s defense preserved with a late goal-line stand, helping the Volunteers rally past Kentucky 17-13. Trailing 13-3 at halftime, the Volunteers replaced Brian Maurer with Jarrett Guarantano at quarterback to start the third and quickly got two TD drives totaling just 6 ½ minutes.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Appalachian State defeated South Carolina 20-15 for its second Power Five win this season. Quarterback Zac Thomas ran for a score, safety Nicholas Ross returned an interception for a TD and the Mountaineers held off a fourth-quarter rally for its first win over a Southeastern Conference opponent. Appalachian State added that to its 34-31 win over North Carolina two months ago.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Western Kentucky quarterback Ty Storey went 22 for 32 for 213 yards and a touchdown and added two more scores on the ground to lead his current team on a rout of his former team, Arkansas, 45-19.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Nicki Ekhomu scored 21 points, Sammie Puisis added 16, including four free throws in the last half minute and No. 12 Florida State closed with an 8-0 run to defeat LSU 70-62. Khayla Pointer, who led LSU with 22 points, hit a jumper and a 3-pointer, and Ayana Mitchell scored inside to tie the game at 62 with 3:33 to play.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Nick Richards had 21 points and 10 rebounds, Immanuel Quickley scored 16 and No. 2 Kentucky scored the game’s first 14 points to cruise past Eastern Kentucky 91-49. Seeking to follow up their victory over top-ranked Michigan State, the Wildcats made six of their first 10 shots, including a couple of baskets by Richards. The Colonels missed their first nine attempts before Darius Hicks’ three-point play with 12:57 remaining in the first half. The Wildcats led by 44 in the second half.
