COLUMBIA, Mo. — Tyler Badie rushed 34 times for 209 yards and a touchdown to help Missouri hold off a fourth-quarter comeback and defeat South Carolina 31-28.

Badie leads the Southeastern Conference with 1,239 rushing yards on the season.

The Tigers built a 17-point lead when Badie scored on a 19-yard run with 12:31 left in the game.

That’s when the opportunistic Gamecocks made things interesting by converting two Missouri turnovers into touchdowns and slicing the deficit to three points with 4:32 left.
