First, Mizzou got a pick. Then the Tigers hit a trick play. But it only produced three points.
Landry Jones was intercepted on an athletic play by Missouri's Zaviar Gooden, and Mizzou appeared to take care of business with a short field, pulling out a hook-and-ladder for a score. But replay confirmed that Kendial Lawrence did not get in, instead stepping out at the Oklahoma 3, and the Sooners shut down the Mizzou offense in a goal-to-go set of downs.
The Tigers had to settle for a field goal, and lead 29-21. It's got to be maddening for every fan in Columbia that Mizzou has led almost all night, but never by more than a possession.
For the faithful in crimson and cream, that's heartening.
