Mizzou returns Ryan Hilinski's horrible INT for 100-yard TD
Missouri just got a huge double-digit swing on one play.
Ronnell Perkins picked off a Ryan Hilinski pass in the end zone and took it all the way back for six points. The impressive play can be watched below:

In addition to being a huge momentum boost, Perkins’ play is also a record-breaker. The 100-yard return breaks Marcus King’s previous record of 99 yards. King’s play also came against South Carolina, an Independence Bowl meeting before the teams became SEC East rivals.
With the extra point, that puts Mizzou up 31-14, a world of difference from 24-21 or 24-17. The game is still in the third quarter.
