Mizzou upsets No. 17 LSU

COLUMBIA, Mo (KMIZ)

Eli Drinkwitz's squad played a close game with LSU throughout, ending in a 45-41 air-raid victory.

Mizzou came out firing as the underdogs against the 17th-ranked team in the country.

The momentum shifted in the fourth quarter when MU defensive lineman Chris Turner blocked LSU's field goal attempt. Missouri regained possession and the fourth quarter lead as Connor Bazelak hit Niko Hea in the end zone.

Missouri's offense ignited under Bazelak, with touchdown tosses to Tauskie Dove, Jalen Knox, Micah Wilson, and Hea.

Mizzou was missing seven players heading into the matchup, but Drinkwitz dug deep into his roster, utilizing players who, up to this point, hadn't seen much playing time.

MU finally saw some promising flashes from its run game, as well. Tyler Badie finished the day with two touchdowns, one coming on the ground and one in the air.

Saturday was the first time Mizzou put up more than 500 offensive yards in 13 SEC games.

But, LSU's offense is no joke, even without Joe Burrow at the helm.

Terrace Marshall Jr. put on a show at Faurot Field with three touchdowns and 235 receiving yards.

Mizzou's defense cracked the code in the fourth quarter, just seconds left, with a goal line stop for the victory.

We also spoke with Mizzou's Connor Bazelak and Nick Bolton. You can watch those full interviews in the video player below.
