Lorenzo Nunez, the freshman QB for South Carolina, avoided two potential interceptions last week against Central Florida. Mizzou dropped two potential INTs in the second quarter, one resulting in a touchdown, after a deflected ball.
In the third quarter, Nunez was picked off three times on back-to-back-to-back drives. Kenya Dennis picked off an underthrown ball at the Tiger 30. On the next drive, Ian Simon was sitting back at the goal line. Nunez never saw him and it led to an easy pick on an underthrow to the endzone. The ball was down at the two.
Linebacker T.J. Holloman almost picked off Drew Lock and 3rd and three from the Tigers nine, but Holloman dropped it as he stepped in the way of a slant pattern with 7:05 left in the third.
Walter Brady made it three straight possessions when he picked off Nunez on the Tigers 47 and returned it 31 yards.
Mizzou scored on a third and goal and one yard run from Ish Witter.
