The No. 25 Missouri Tigers went into the half with a big 28-10 lead over No. 7 Georgia Bulldogs. Not many people thought Missouri had much of a chance against the Georgia Bulldogs coming into the game so their dominance was surprising.

The Bulldogs came out of the half ready to play though. They got the ball first and marched down the field and got a field goal to open the second half. Not a lot of points, but points nonetheless.

Near the end of the third quarter they drove 80 yards down the field to score to narrow the gap to 20-28. Then, early in the fourth quarter they scored a touchdown on a 10 yard pass from Aaron Murray to Chris Conley. They didn’t convert for extra points and were stuck at 28-26.

It looked like Missouri was in a lot of trouble as Georgia charged back with plenty of time left. They had the ball at Georgia’s 40-yard line and it was 2nd and 1. Missouri called a double-pass trick play and ended up scoring on a 40-yard touchdown pass to extend the lead late in the game.

It was an incredible play and an incredible throw from L’Damian Washington. Check it out below.
