Missouri beats Florida in overtime to earn bowl eligibility

Missouri grabbed its sixth win of the year to earn bowl eligibility on Saturday after defeating Florida in a 24–23 thriller in overtime. 

After the Gators opened up overtime with a touchdown, Tigers running back Tyler Badie scored on a 13-yard run that set up a two-point try for the win instead of the extra point. The risk paid off for Eli Drinkwitz’s squad. 

Quarterback Connor Bazelak faked the handoff but was pressured off the edge. He heaved a fadeaway pass to the end zone and found a wide open Daniel Parker for the walk-off win.
