Missouri fans cheer as Pig Brown heads to the end zone after picking up a fumble in the Illinois end zone Saturday, Sept. 1, 2007, in the Arch Rivalry game at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, Mo.

Three Illinois fumbles broke the game open for Missouri in the second quarter. After the Tigers scored a touchdown with 20 seconds left, Illini kick returner Chris Duvalt fumbled. The Tigers recovered and kicked a field goal. Safety Pig Brown scooped up an Illinois fumble at the Missouri goal line and ran it 100 yards for a touchdown. McGee fumbled on Illnois’ ensuing drive, and Brown recovered it again. The turnover led to a 69-yard Missouri touchdown drive.
