Missouri Kicker Trolls Army With Salute, Army Responds With Epic Comeback Win

Missouri football

If you’re playing against Army there’s one thing you can’t do…

And that’s troll Army.

The Missouri Tigers squared off against the Army Black Knights last night in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl.

Harrison Mevis, Mizzou’s kicker who is better known as “Thiccer,” as he weighs in at a staggering 236 pounds (insanely big for a kicker), was having himself a night after nailing a 39-yard field goal as time expired in the second quarter, his third in the half.

However, he made a move that just might’ve cursed his team…

After drilling the 39-yarder, he looked straight towards the goal post and the opposing Army players and gave a nice little “salute.”

I mean c’mon, trolling Army is like looking Uncle Sam in the eyes and laughing in his face.

Needless to say, he immediately regretted the decision.

After being down 16-7 at the half, Army came roaring back, taking a 21-16 lead.

Mizzou, with their backs against the wall, completed an 80-yard drive and scored a touchdown with 2:00 left in the game, but failed to get the two-point conversion that would’ve put them up 24-21.

Trailing 21-22, the Black Knights roared down the field, and their own kicker drilled a 41-yarder as time expired for the win, 24-22.

Mevis didn’t get a chance to kick the whole second half.

Rule of thumb, you come at the Army, you best not miss…
