Top 10 Moments: No. 6 - The Fumble Return

Before we dive headfirst into basketball season (embarrassing Texas? Who saw that coming??), I've compiled a list of the Top 10 moments from a Mizzou football season chocked full of them. Each day, I'll unveil another moment until we culminate with the single most memorable moment from the 2007 season.

6. The Fumble Return
(cue video to 2:30 or -04:18)

-- The play could arguably be the biggest play of the season that nearly NO ONE in the national media talked about. With Illinois driving in the Mizzou redzone and Eddie McGee giving the Illini the momentum, Pig Brown and Co. came up with a game changing AND season changing play towards the end of the second half. Pig Brown's 100-yard fumble return swung the tide in Mizzou's favor and set up a dominant third quarter that would prove to be enough to help the Tigers one of their signature wins.
