COLUMBIA - After being a target on social media for missing two extra points two weeks ago, Andrew Baggett won an award for his performance last Saturday.

Baggett hit two critical field goals in a 21-14 win against Arkansas. He made attempts from 52 yards and then another from 50 right before halftime to keep the Tigers within one possession of the Razorbacks.

His previous career-high before the game was from 48 yards.

The redshirt junior hit all of his extra points and continued to showcase his strong leg forcing Arkansas to settle for three touchbacks in the victory.

Baggett shares the award this week with Tennessee's Cameron Sutton.

Baggett and the Tigers will travel to Atlanta to play number one ranked Alabama in the SEC Championship game this Saturday at 3:00 p.m. CT.
