RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Andre Gustavson made a free throw with 0.6 seconds left in overtime and Richmond beat Vanderbilt 93-92. Gustavson appeared to have caused the game to go to a second overtime when he missed a dunk just before the buzzer, but the officials conferred and called the foul on Scottie Pippen Jr. Gustavson missed the second shot and the Spiders (2-0) had their second overtime win of the season.
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU tight end Thaddeus Moss would like everyone who saw his clutch, acrobatic, toe-touching catch at Alabama to know one thing going forward. The son of Hall of Fame receiver Randy Moss says knows he’s capable of doing a whole lot more and making more “crazy catches.” That’s something Mississippi’s defense will have to keep in mind on Saturday night when the Rebels play host to the top-ranked and unbeaten Tigers.
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — The Auburn Tigers will largely be judged by what happens in their last two Southeastern Conference football games of the regular season. They’re used to it.

UNDATED (AP) — No. 1 LSU Tigers are 9-0 for the first time since 2011 and just the fifth time in school history as they visit Mississippi.
