T.J. Moe Runs Tiger Football Team to Big Win

Posted by We Are Mizzou On 11:00 PM 0 comments

T.J. Moe juked and scored on a 68-yard pass from Blaine Gabbert with 51 seconds left as Missouri beat upset-minded San Diego State 27-24 on Saturday night.

Moe turned a short sideline pass into a touchdown with a stutter step that caused two Aztecs defenders to collide near midfield. Missouri (3-0) had fallen behind by four points after a 32-yard field goal with just over two minutes remaining for San Diego State (2-1).

The dramatic win offset a career day by San Diego State freshman Ronnie Hillman, who ran for 235 yards and touchdowns covering 75 and 93 yards.

Gabbert ran for a first-half touchdown and was 28 of 51 for 351 yards with two interceptions, both in the final five minutes. Tight end Michael Egnew caught 13 passes for 145 yards, with Moe collecting seven for 119 yards.
