Missouri's win over Georgia sent a pretty good statement to the rest of the SEC, or at least the SEC East. The undefeated Tigers may have taken advantage of a depleted Georgia team Saturday, but the Tigers did not hold anything back in the road win. They even pulled a nifty trick play for a touchdown.
The play is not exactly unique in the execution. It was a simple wide receiver pass, which we have seen many times. But how often does it result in a long touchdown pass? I'm not sure, but it did this time.
On 2nd and 1, with Missouri leading Georgia 28-26 with 9:32 to play, Missouri quarterback James Franklin passed back to wide receiver Bud Sasser, who had time to unload a 40-yard pass to L'Damian Washington for a touchdown.
That was the first pass of Sasser's career, which almost makes you wonder how long Missouri has been waiting to unload that play with the junior receiver.
