Mizzou drops to #9/10 in Top 25 polls after Andrew Baggett’s 24-yard tying field goal attempt in double-overtime hit off the left upright, and the South Carolina Gamecocks used 17 fourth-quarter points to outlast the Missouri Tigers, 27-24.
South Carolina Connor Shaw came to the rescue after sitting the first two and a half quarters with a knee injury. He completed 20 of 29 passes with three touchdowns in the fourth quarter and overtime. The last touchdown came on a 4th and Goal at the 15 yard line in the first overtime.
Missouri started well, forcing three turnovers and getting a 96-yard touchdown pass by Maty Mauk to La’Damian Washington, the second-longest in school history. The Tigers’ offense stalled in the second half, with Mauk completing only four of his last 11 passes.
The Tigers’ loss dropped Missouri’s lead on South Carolina to one game in the SEC East with Tennessee coming to town on Saturday. Coverage begins with Tiger Gameday on KTGR at 3 PM.
