Mizzou K Harrison Mevis broke a school record with performance against Arkansas
The Missouri Tigers won a thrilling 50-48 contest over the Arkansas Razorbacks in the Battle Line Rivalry on Saturday afternoon.
While Arkansas missed 1 costly extra point and had another blocked, Mizzou freshman K Harrison Mevis was money all day. He finished 5-for-5 on field-goal attempts with a long of 51 yards and hit the game-winner as time expired. He also drilled all 5 of his extra points.
For those keeping score at home, that’s 20 points Mevis accounted for. Per PowerMizzou.com, that is a school record for most points scored in a single game by a kicker:
Harrison Mevis set the single game #Mizzou scoring record for a kicker yesterday. His 20 points eclipse the 18 Andrew Baggett had against Florida in 2013

Here’s another look at his game-winning kick, for any Tigers fans who want to relive that glorious moment:
Mevis is in Columbia for at least 2 more years after this, it seems, so the future is bright with the Mizzou special teams. What a game for the freshman out of Indiana.
