Oklahoma seemed poised to score a go-ahead touchdown. Then Aldon Smith interrupted the inevitable.
The Missouri defensive end faked a rush, dropped back in coverage, and snagged a red zone interception. More impressively, he shook a tackle or two, cut back, and got deep into Oklahoma territory before Kenny Stills caught him from behind and made the tackle.
It wasn't quite the back-breaking momentum shift that a pick-six would have been, but Smith has given Mizzou a heaping helping of good fortune and a chance to retake the lead. Blaine Gabbert and the Tigers offense will begin the second quarter in the red zone.
