Syracuse spoils Missouri's home finale 31-27
SYRACUSE 31, MISSOURI 27

By R.B. FALLSTROM

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Ryan Nassib threw a 17-yard touchdown pass
to a wide-open Alec Lemon with 20 seconds to go, capping a
21-point fourth quarter as Syracuse spoiled Missouri's home
finale with a 31-27 victory on Saturday night.



Lemon had 12 receptions for 244 yards and two scores, including
a 13-yard catch that tied it at 17 earlier in the fourth. After
trailing 17-3 early, the Orangemen (6-5) followed up on a 45-26
upset of previously unbeaten Louisville a week earlier and
became bowl eligible for the second time in three seasons.



Andrew Baggett's 46-yard field goal with 1:52 to play had put
Missouri, minus injured quarterback James Franklin, up by three.



Kendial Lawrence had 119 yards on 27 carries with a
fourth-quarter touchdown for the Tigers (5-6), who need a
victory at No. 9 Texas A&M next week to become bowl eligible for
the eighth straight season. Backup quarterback Corbin
Berkstresser led Missouri to 10 points in the fourth quarter
after replacing Franklin, described as "woozy" by the team's
radio broadcast after getting hit the previous drive.



Nassib was 26 for 40 for 385 yards and two touchdowns, setting a
school career record for yards passing. He had entered the game
only 6 yards shy of the mark of 8,466 yards set by Marvin Graves
from 1990-93.



All three of Syracuse's scoring drives in the fourth quarter,
including an 8-yard run by Jerome Smith that tied it at 24 with
5:33 to go in the fourth quarter, lasted less than two minutes.



The Orangemen ended Missouri's 18-game winning streak against
non-conference opponents, the school's best in the modern era.



Syracuse piled up 508 yards against a Missouri defense that
faded without star tackle Sheldon Richardson, who did not dress
after multiple reports during the week that he had been
suspended for academic reasons. Richardson entered the game tied
for the team lead in tackles.



Franklin threw touchdown passes on the first two drives and was
17 for 23 for a season-best 279 yards. He watched from far down
the sideline as Berkstresser went 2 for 2 for 65 yards that
produced Lawrence's TD run for the lead.



Baggett's 46-yard field goal tied his career best, capitalizing
on an interception by Randy Ponder off a deflected pass.



Dorial Green-Beckham broke free for a 70-yard score on a screen
pass on the fourth snap of the game and Jimmie Hunt scored on a
30-yard reception in the first quarter.



Syracuse cut the deficit to 17-10 near the end of the half on a
1-yard run by Prince-Tyson Gulley.



Green-Beckham was untouched on a screen pass on the fourth snap,
a 70-yard jaunt. After Syracuse settled for a field goal when
Lemon whiffed on a pass that went between his legs at the 5,
Franklin hit Jimmie Hunt on a 30-yard touchdown on third-and-14
to make it 14-3.



Green-Beckham scored on his third consecutive reception and Hunt
scored his fourth career touchdown on just nine receptions.
Green-Beckham and Danario Alexander (2009) are the only players
in school history with a pair of 70-yard TD catches in a season.
