Early in the fourth quarter of their 2016 matchup with Georgia, the Tigers held the lead, 27-21. Then the Bulldogs’ Isaiah McKenzie caught a 20-yard pass with 89 seconds left, catapulting Georgia to a 28-27 win over Mizzou at Faurot Field. The winning touchdown was the third for McKenzie.

During the Georgia game, Mizzou fans striped the Zou, dressing in black or gold, according to assigned section, and creating tiger stripes across the stadium.
