Baggett recognized by SEC

Mizzou redshirt freshman kicker Andrew Baggett was named co-Southeastern Conference special teams player of the week after his 35-yard field goal Saturday at Tennessee gave the Tigers a 51-48 win in four overtimes.

The kick was the first game-winning attempt for Baggett, who only began kicking his senior year at Lee's Summit North -- and inauspiciously, at that, thumping his first practice attempt off the back of the snapper's head.

Baggett also was six for six on point-after conversions in the game. 

Tiger quarterback James Franklin also was recognized by the SEC among its weekly "other outstanding performances" for his career-high four TD passes.
