Recap: Tennessee vs. Missouri

Knoxville, TN (Sports Network) - Andrew Baggett's 35-yard field goal in the fourth overtime gave the Missouri Tigers a 51-48 win over the Tennessee Volunteers in a Southeastern Conference nail biter at Neyland Stadium.

James Franklin threw for 226 yards and four touchdowns to help the Tigers (5-5, 2-5 SEC) claim the first-ever meeting between the new conference foes. Kendial Lawrence carried 21 times for 153 yards and two TDs in the victory.

The Volunteers (4-6, 0-6) have yet to notch an SEC victory this season, despite 404 yards passing and four touchdowns from Tyler Bray. Mychal Rivera finished with 129 receiving yards and a touchdown on 10 catches, while Justin Hunter notched nine catches for 141 yards and a score.

Tennessee grabbed a 7-0 lead on Cordarelle Patterson's five-yard touchdown run at the 4:08 mark of the first quarter, capping a nine-play, 88-yard drive.

Missouri's Jimmie Hunt returned the ensuing kickoff 87 yards for a touchdown, quieting the home crowd.

However, the crowd got right back into it thanks to a couple of lengthy second-quarter touchdown drives by the Volunteers. A.J. Johnson gave UT a 14-7 lead on a three-yard run at the 9:56 mark of the second quarter, and Bray made it a 21-7 game on his 21-yard scoring strike to Rivera with 4:10 to play in the half.

Missouri cut the deficit to 21-14 on a big 77-yard touchdown run by Lawrence on the very first play of the second half.

But on Missouri's next possession, Lawrence lost a fumble and UT's LaDarrell McNeil returned it 33 yards to the Tigers 30-yard line. That turnover helped set up Bray's 16-yard touchdown pass to Alton Howard at the 8:03 mark of the third quarter, which gave UT a 28-14 advantage.

Later in the third quarter, Lawrence atoned for his mistake with a one-yard touchdown run to make it a 28-21 game.

The score would remain that way until the final minute of regulation, when Franklin tossed a 25-yard touchdown pass to Dorial Green-Beckham on 4th-and-12 to tie the score and force overtime.

Missouri opened the extra session with a touchdown, as Franklin connected with Hunt for a 24-yard scoring strike. UT answered with an eight-yard TD pass from Bray to Rajion Neal.

The Vols found the end zone again to start the second overtime, as Tyler Drummer scored on a five-yard run. But Missouri would even things up again, as Franklin found Marcus Lucas for an 18-yard scoring strike.

After the teams traded touchdowns again in the third extra session, Missouri's defense came up with a stop in the fourth overtime when Ian Simon broke up a fourth-down pass. Baggett ended the game with his 35-yard field goal on the Tigers' ensuing possession.
