Mizzou rallies behind Hansbrough to take 21-20 win over USC

COLUMBIA,SC- Last season, fans at Farout Field looked on as the Gamecocks rallied from a 17-point deficit to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

This time around, Mizzou provided South Carolina fans with nearly similar heartache. Down 20-7, the Tigers scored 14 unanswered points to leave Williams-Brice Stadium with a hard-fought 21-20 victory.


South Carolina opened play with a brief four-play drive that ended with the Missouri defense stopping Brandon Wilds on a fourth-and-1 run play for no gain at their own 42-yard line.


Missouri quickly capitalized on the turnover on downs. Russell Hansbrough put the first points of the night on the board on an 18-yard run with 12:06 to go in the first quarter.
