Missouri lost to South Carolina 27-24 in double overtime on Saturday in heartbreaking fashion.
Not only did the Tigers blow a 17-0 lead to the Gamecocks in the fourth quarter, allowing a tying touchdown in the final minute, but they missed a 24-yard chip shot field goal in the second overtime to lose the game. But as replays showed, Missouri’s holder didn’t spin around the football like he was supposed to for the kick. Instead of having the laces out, the holder left them in for Andrew Baggett’s missed field goal that cost the Tigers their perfect season.
Here’s a GIF of the missed kick:
As anyone who’s watched Ace Ventura could tell you, the laces are always supposed to be out!
We’d also be remiss if we didn’t show you the faces of the Missouri fans after the missed field goal. Are these faces of disbelief or what?
It’s even better zoomed in:
What a tough break.
