Missouri football loses SEC game to Auburn on same old issues

Nate Peat lost the ball as he was heading into the endzone. Harrison Mevis missed a chip-shot to win it well before that.

From the outside, those two plays cost Missouri football its Saturday SEC opener at Auburn, a 17-14 overtime rock fight. Those mistakes were among the most visible symptoms in the crushing defeat, one that came in a game Missouri seemed to have won multiple times. 

The issues were deeper than that. 

“There’s a million plays out there, you can go look,” quarterback Brady Cook said after the game. “You can put it on me, put it on the offense. Football’s a team game, there’s no other game like it. It’s a game of inches. It’s not Peat, it’s not on Mevis. It’s a team sport.”
