Mizzou kicker Andrew Baggett was named the Southeastern Conference’s Co-Special Teams Player of the Week after his standout performance against Arkansas in Mizzou’s SEC East Championship-clinching win last Friday. He shares this week’s award with Tennessee’ Cameron Sutton.
Baggett, who is now third all-time at Mizzou with his 276 career points, became the first Tiger ever to connect on a pair of 50-yard field goals in the same game, hitting from a career-long 52 and 50 yards against Arkansas last Friday. Both field goals came in the first half as he kept Mizzou in the game despite a scuffling offense to that point. He also added an extra point on Mizzou’s game-winning touchdown, accounting for seven points in the 21-14 victory.
On the season, Baggett has scored 81 points for the Tigers, connecting on field goals. He and the Tigers will play in the SEC Championship against top-ranked Alabama on Saturday at 3 p.m. (CT) on CBS.
