Auburn, Mizzou guarding against SEC letdowns

De3c. 6, 2013 ATLANTA (AP) -- Auburn and Missouri are competing for the Southeastern Conference title Saturday, and possibly a chance to play for the national championship.

Yet both teams have to guard against a letdown.

As ludicrous as that might sound, Auburn and Missouri are coming off emotionally charged victories last week that gave each coach a reason to fret just a bit.

No. 3 Auburn (11-1, 7-1 SEC) used one of the greatest finishing plays in college football history -- a 109-yard return of a missed field goal with no time on the clock -- to beat two-time defending national champion Alabama in the Iron Bowl for the West Division title. No. 5 Missouri (11-1, 7-1) won the East with a thrilling victory of its own, knocking off Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M 28-21.
