Vols Fall To Missouri in 4-OT Shootout

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Andrew Baggett kicked a 35-yard field goal in the fourth overtime period Saturday as Missouri rallied from a two-touchdown halftime deficit to beat Tennessee 51-48 at Neyland Stadium.

 

Missouri forced overtime when James Franklin threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Dorial Green-Beckham on a fourth-and-12 play with 47 seconds remaining.

 

Each team scored touchdowns on its first two overtime possessions, including a 5-yard run by Tennessee holder Tyler Drummer on a fake field-goal attempt. Each team reached the end zone again in the third overtime but failed to make its ensuing two-point conversion attempt.

 

Missouri's defense finally came through in the fourth overtime when safety Ian Simon broke up a fourth-and-3 pass to Zach Rogers from the Missouri 18.

 

Tyler Bray threw for 404 yards and four touchdowns for Tennessee (4-6, 0-6). Franklin threw four touchdown passes and Kendial Lawrence ran for two scores for Missouri (5-5, 2-5).
