Because the play wasn't dead, Crockett's touchdown came off the board.

The contest opened with a flurry of offense, as MSU answered a 65-yard Mizzou scoring pass from Lock to Johnson on the game's first play from scrimmage with a 12-play scoring march of their own, taking a 7-6 lead on a Huslig to Jordan Frazier [missouristatebears.com] TD toss from six yards out.

521 - Passing yards by Drew Lock. "That was a team I watched every single Saturday", Lock said of the record-breaking 2007 Tigers. "I look forward to our team having a great season and am sorry that I will not be with my brothers early on, but I will continue to work with them and be prepared when I return".
