Missouri 28, Indiana 28
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) _ Jeff Jacke’s 22-yard field goal attempt with four seconds remaining hit the left upright Saturday, thwarting a furious Missouri comeback and forcing the Tigers to settle for a 28-28 tie with Indiana.
John Stollenwerck, on fourth-and-4, combined with Michael Jones on a 33- yard touchdown pass play to tie the score with 4:37 left. The Tigers, 1-1-1, then forced an Indiana punt and rumbled downfield with Craig Lammers and Chris Hall ripping off long gains to set up Jacke’s attempt. The snap was clean but the ball slammed into the upright and bounced back into the faces of the crestfallen Missouri players.
David Schnell and Anthony Thompson scored two touchdown apiece as the Hoosiers, 2-0-1, overcame a 21-7 deficit to take a 28-21 lead with 8:35 to play.
Missouri seized a 21-7 lead with a pair of touchdowns 13 seconds apart in the third quarter. But the Hoosiers answered with a nine-play, 72-yard drive at the end of the period, and then tied it on Schnell’s 1-yard run after linebacker Brad Money batted down a Missouri pass and intercepted it on the Tiger 14.
Thompson, who rushed for 121 yards, gave the Hoosiers the lead with 8:35 to play when he banged across the goal line from four yards out.
