The Missouri Tigers fell to the Auburn Tigers in heartbreaking fashion on Saturday afternoon.

Missouri held Auburn to a field goal on the first possession of overtime, giving the team an opportunity to win the game with a touchdown. The Tigers nearly got that game-winning score, but running back Nathaniel Peat fumbled the ball just before crossing the endzone plane.

The Eliah Drinkwitz-led squad were inches away from claiming victory — instead they fell to Auburn 17-14.

The officials met in the endzone to discuss whether or not Peat got into the endzone. After some tense deliberation, they ruled that he came up just short.

Take a look at the play here:

Missouri is now 2-2 to start the 2022 season, notching wins over Louisiana Tech, Abilene Christian and losses to Kansas State, Auburn.

This loss marks the beginning of a tough stretch of football for the Tigers. They'll face off against the No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs next weekend, followed by a matchup against the No. 20 Florida Gators.
