Harrison Mevis, aka the “Thiccer Kicker,” is beloved at Mizzou, and for good reason. He showed why on Saturday afternoon at Faurot Field against No. 15 Kansas State.

Tied 27-27 with only seconds remaining in the game, Mizzou coach Eli Drinkwitz made some bizarre coaching decisions to put Mevis in a bad position for a game-winning kick.

So what did Mevis do? Just hit a 61-yard field goal to win the game and save his coach from embarrassment:


Oh, and he also set an SEC record in the process.

It is not a Mizzou record, as the Tigers had a 62-yard field goal in 1986:

Still, what a kick by one of the best kickers in college football today. Here’s some of the reaction on social media to the kick:

Mizzou is 3-0 for the first time since 2018. The Tigers have a top-15 win on their résumé. We’ll see how long they can keep their winning streak going moving forward. Mevis will be a big part of any close games the Tigers have the rest of the year.
