Auburn’s comeback over Johnny Manziel and the Aggies was just one of a slew of Southern upsets on Saturday. [Todd Van Emst/Selma Times-Journal]If last weekend kicked off upset season, this weekend’s slate of games might be remembered as, Zach’s words, “The Night Dixie Drove Itself Down”. The hierarchy in the SEC was skewed, with the East rapidly developing into Missouri’s one-horse race and the West looking even more like Alabama’s to lose.

Ohio State was struggling mightily against the Iowa Hawkeyes until Buckeyes runningback Carlos Hyde broke the game open on this 19-yard touchdown run.
