Missouri plays Texas A&M on Saturday at Memorial Stadium in its final football game of the regular season.

COLUMBIA — Henry Josey scored on a 57-yard run in the fourth quarter Saturday to push No. 5 Missouri to 28-21 over No. 19 Texas A&M.

With the win, Missouri advances to the SEC Championship game against Auburn. That game is set for 3 p.m. Dec. 7 in Atlanta.

Before Saturday, Missouri hadn't trailed in the second half of a Southeastern Conference game this season. 

Opening up the second half down 14-7, Missouri's offense went to work. In just seven plays, Missouri drove 75 yards for a touchdown. Just like that, the score was tied, setting the stage for a thrilling ending to the final game on the schedule for the Tigers.

James Franklin led another touchdown drive for the Tigers before the third quarter ended, but the Aggies answered in a hurry. Even when Missouri punter Christian Brinser pinned Texas A&M on its own two-yard line, the Aggies had an answer. Running back Trey Williams knifed right up the gut of Missouri's defense, helping to drive Texas A&M 98 yards down the field on nine plays in less than three minutes on the game clock to tie the game at 21. 

Missouri and Texas A&M then traded punts in the fourth quarter before Josey's winning touchdown.
