COLUMBIA - Mizzou's win over South Carolina isn't the only accomplishment for the team.

The linebacker's performance included nine tackles and a fumble recovery which lead to a touchdown.
This season, Garrett leads Mizzou with 37 tackles.
The Tigers will be going into a bye week, but Garrett will look to continue his dominance on the field the following weekend, Saturday, Oct. 5, when Mizzou plays against Troy at home.
