Missouri kicker owns offense

CARSON, Calif. — Missouri's Andrew Baggett hit six field goals, including a 22-yarder early in the fourth quarter, to lift the National team to an 18-17 victory over the American in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on Saturday.

Baggett's winner with 13:48 left came three plays after defensive end Kyle Kragen of California recovered a fumble by Utah quarterback Travis Wilson on the American 10-yard line. That was Kragen's third sack of the game.

Stephen Rivers, the younger brother of San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, threw a 12-yard touchdown to wide receiver Jayden Mickens of Washington with 2:31 left in the first half, giving the American team a 17-6 lead. Rivers, who threw for 1,394 yards and nine touchdowns at Northwestern State in 2015, completed 11 of 14 passes for 97 yards.

TCU's Trevor Boykin, suspended from the Alamo Bowl after being arrested because of a bar fight, completed 1 of 3 passes with an interception, playing in the first quarter.
