Miz­zou squeaks out vic­tory over Vandy

The State (Sunday) - - Sports -

Mis­souri’s de­fense bent but didn’t break dur­ing Van­der­bilt’s fi­nal drive, and the Tigers de­feated the Com­modores 33-28 to clinch bowl el­i­gi­bil­ity on Satur­day.

Mis­souri kicker Tucker Mccann had a chance to ice the game with 1:48 re­main­ing, but the ju­nior missed a 31-yard field goal to give Van­der­bilt a last chance. The Com­modores drove down to Mis­souri’s 25-yard line, but couldn’t con­vert a last-se­cond heave to win the game.

In the end, the Tigers (6-4, 2-4 South­east­ern Con­fer­ence) are go­ing bowl­ing, and the Com­modores (4-6, 1-5) will need to win both its re­main­ing games to guar­an­tee bowl el­i­gi­bil­ity.
