    South Carolina rallied from a 17-point deficit to beat No. 5 Missouri 27-24 in double overtime on Saturday at Faurot Field.

    Missouri appeared on its way to a victory before Connor Shaw came off the bench to rally the Gamecocks. Shaw hit Nick Jones with a two-yard touchdown pass with just 42 seconds left to tie the game at 17.

    In the first overtime, Missouri scored first on a Marcus Murphy one-yard plunge. South Carolina answered when Shaw hit Bruce Ellington with a 15-yard touchdown pass on fourth down.

    Elliott Fry put South Carolina ahead for the first time in the second overtime with a 40-yard field goal. Missouri had a chance to tie the game, but Andrew Baggett missed from 24 yards, ending the game and Mizzou's unbeaten mark.
