  • 1 min to read

After three weeks without a game, Missouri beat South Carolina 17-10 in the Mayor's Cup in Columbia, South Carolina. 

Redshirt sophomore wide receiver Tauskie Dove earned an early lead for Missouri with a touchdown reception in the first quarter. A strong Missouri defense showed out the rest of the game, with three total sacks. 

Running back Larry Rountree III had a 11-yard run in the second quarter, giving him a total of 3,198 yards, enough to break the school record for rushing yardage by a running back. Rountree is now the second-leading rusher in MU history after quarterback Brad Smith.

A late interception by linebacker Devin Nicholson cemented the win for Missouri, which  now has a 3-3 record.

Missouri will face Arkansas next Saturday at home.
