In lieu of our traditional links post this AM, we want to get your Fourth of July started off right. So, we’re putting together a list of Missouri’s biggest fireworks from the 2018-2019 athletic year (in no particular order).
Pop on some K-Log (Playing with the Boys, not Danger Zone) and get amped up for the rest of your day of grilling, swimming, drinking and ‘sploding things (please be safe, y’all).
Boat-racing the Gators in the Swamp
In hindsight, this one was even more of an explosion than we thought at the time, given that Florida finished sixth in the nation. Drew Lock provided most of the fireworks in this one with 250 yards and three touchdowns through the air.
Daniel Lewis’ walk-off pin against Virginia
Lewis had higher-ranked wins this year, but this walk-off pin while trailing preserved Missouri’s dual win streak and provided one of the moments of the year.

Brooke Wilmes’ walks-off South Carolina with home run
This was Missouri’s second walk-off win in as many days against the then 16th-ranked Gamecocks, and this was a series that likely helped clinch Missouri’s eventual postseason berth.
Sikemma strikes out 10 in win over LSU
TJ Sikemma also had 10 strikeouts in a win over South Carolina, but his performance against the eighth-ranked LSU Tigers was masterful and timely, evening the series after a heart-breaking extra innings loss the night before. Missouri went on to take the series from LSU.
