Kentucky , which had yet to win in six SEC games, turned on Tennessee 20-0. Calvin Bird scored all Wildcat touchdowns, the last on a 62-yard punt return.

Coach Bear Bryant's reconstruction schedule at Alabama came perilously close to running late. Little Memphis State , which had the better of the statistics, was the culprit before Alabama prevailed 14-7 with a second-half comeback.

In other games Auburn drubbed Mississippi Southern 28-7 and Florida stopped Florida State 18-8. The top three:

1. LSU (9-1)
2. MISSISSIPPI (8-1)
3. GEORGIA (8-1)
