Mizzou narrowly roasts the Hogs; reignited the flames late

COLUMBIA, Mo (KMIZ)

The Mizzou football team took down the Arkansas Razorbacks, 50-48, after a fourth quarter revival from Mizzou's offense.

In a reunion of the defensive coordinators, Arkansas' Barry Odom and Mizzou's Ryan Walters, it was an offensive shootout early on.

Through the first two quarters, The Tigers and the Razorbacks kept it close, ending in a 20-20 tie.

However, the momentum shifted just before the half. Officials ejected linebacker Nick Bolton on a targeting penalty.

During the game, the SEC released a statement, which said it stands by the officials' calls.

Following the ejection, the Razorbacks faked a field goal and ran another one in for a touchdown to take a seven point lead at halftime.

The Razorbacks hit the ground running after the half, literally. Arkansas raked in 292 rushing yards and four touchdowns on the ground.

However, Eli Drinkwitz' squad would not be denied.

The Tigers got back in it thanks to its tandem of running backs. Tyler Badie ran for a 46-yard touchdown to put Mizzou with seven points.

Later, Larry Rountree III completed an 82-yard drive with his third touchdown of the die to tie it up at 40 apiece.

Just minutes later, Rountree broke free for more than 40 yards to put the Tigers in a position to take the lead. Badie did just that with a short touchdown trot and the lead for Mizzou.

Arkansas took a late, 48-47, lead with just 40 seconds on the game clock, but Harrison Mevis nailed a 32-yard field goal to seal the deal, in a 50-48 Mizzou win.
