South Carolina kicker Parker White celebrates his game-winning FG.

The South Carolina Gamecocks’ 37-35 road win over the Missouri Tigers Saturday certainly wasn’t the day’s best football, but it might have been the strangest. The game saw an early unsuccessful onside kick that was actually a mishit from the kicker, then continued through rain that caused scoreboard and scorebug issues and a pick-six where Mizzou quarterback Drew Lock apparently couldn’t see that his receiver had fallen down. But the ending got real weird, starting with an over-an-hour lightning delay that kicked in with 2:41 left in the fourth quarter and South Carolina up 34-32.

After the game finally resumed, Tigers’ kicker Tucker McCann made an incredible 57-yard field goal to put Missouri into the lead. And that was a nice victory for him after the accidental onside kick and after a miss from 25 (in the middle of the rain), and it gave him four of five makes on the day:

But it wasn’t enough for the Tigers in the end. The Gamecocks came up with a drive of their own and Parker White hit a game-winning field goal from 33 yards with two seconds left on the clock:

This one saw a whole lot of other strangeness, including that pick-six with the fallen receiver:

And the overall weather conditions:

And dropped snaps from both punters. And a blocked punt. And a fake punt…

That’s all rather bizarre, and one of the strangest games we’ll see this year.
