Andrew Baggett’s six field goals helps lift National team to win in NFLPA Collegiate Bowl

The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl wound up being a personal showcase for former Missouri kicker Andrew Baggett.

Baggett kicked six field goals to give the National team all of its points in an 18-17 victory over the American on Saturday at StubHub Center.

Baggett had three second-quarter field goals, including one from 50 yards, one in the third quarter and helped his team overcome a 17-12 fourth-quarter deficit with two more field goals.

His only miss was from 54 yards in the third quarter.


National team running back Travis Greene had a game-best 58 yards in 14 carries. Trevone Boykin of Texas Christian, who was suspended for the Alamo Bowl against Oregon, completed one of three passes with an interception.

Jacobi Green rushed for a touchdown and Jaydon Mickens caught a touchdown pass from Stephen Rivers that helped the American team build a 17-9 halftime lead.

Rivers, the brother of San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, completed 11 of 17 passes for 96 yards.
