South Carolina vs. Missouri: Live Score and Highlights

South Carolina 27, Missouri 24—FINAL / 2OT

The No. 8 Missouri Tigers hosted South Carolina as the Tigers were looking to start 8-0 for the first time since 1960, not to mention grab a strangle-hold on the SEC's East Division with a win against Jadeveon Clowney and the No. 21 Gamecocks.

But it wasn't to be.

After heading into the fourth quarter down 17-0, South Carolina comes roaring back to force overtime, and an errant field goal attempt smacks the left upright and falls to the side for Missouri, giving the Gamecocks their first-ever OT win in program history (now 1-2 all-time).

Missouri still controls its own destiny in the SEC, but the margin for error just got a lot smaller.  Behind the Tigers are three teams in the SEC with two losses, and any further loss by Mizzou would put the tie breaker in the hands of the BCS—never something the perceived "little guy" wants.
