Mizzou keeps Gamecocks winless in conference play

uscfoot-mizzouMissouri broke open a close contest midway in the third quarter with a 1-yard touchdown run by Ish Witter and shut South Carolina out in the second half on the way to a 24-10 victory on Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium. South Carolina drops to 2-3 and 0-3 in SEC play with Missouri now 4-1 and 1-1 in league play.

Gamecock wide receiver Pharoh Cooper caught 9 passes for 102 yards and moved up to 16th on the Gamecocks’ all-time career reception list with 97, two shy of Ace Sanders for 15th in school history. It was Cooper’s second 100-yard receiving game of the season and sixth of his career. Freshman quarterback Lorenzo Nunez tallied a career-high with 15 completions and finished 15-for-24 for 172 yards including a touchdown pass. Missouri quarterback Drew Lock was 21-for-28 for 136 passing yards with Witter carrying 17 yards for 98 years to lead the Tigers.

South Carolina’s 14-play, 75-yard drive tied the game at 10-all, capped by an 8-yard touchdown pass from Nunez to Shon Carson. Nunez went 4-for-4 on the drive and sophomore tailback David Williams came up with a key 16-yard run to convert a 4th down. After a targeting penalty on Missouri freshman defensive tackle Terry Beckner Jr. moved the Gamecocks inside the Missouri 10, the Gamecocks would score three plays later as Nunez’s pass was tipped by a Missouri defender into the hands of Carson, who scampered in for the Gamecock score.

Missouri regained the lead on their ensuing drive as Lock and Brown connected again for 9-yard pass as the Tigers went 11 plays, 65 yards in 4:32 to take a 17-10 lead. Missouri defensive end Walter Brady picked off a Nunez pass midway in the third quarter to give the Tigers the ball on the Carolina 31-yardline. Seven plays later, the Tigers would score as tailback Ish Witter scored from 1 yard out giving Missouri the win.
