Development on OL still key to 2012.

Mizzou's skill position players are as explosive as any Missouri has seen since the 2007-08 seasons. But while the quarterback play might be improving, the patchwork offensive line is still an enormous concern.

dcrockett17's Post-Game Thoughts

The big questions are obviously on offense. We have no clue what this offensive line can eventually do well, even after five games.

The official MU-UCF box score is available

The official box score from Mizzou's win over UCF is now available at MUtigers.com. Five quick tidbits:

  • Mizzou had three drives that lasted more than five plays. The results: a punt at the end a seven-play, 40-yard drive in the first quarter, an interception at the end of a nine-play, 60-yard drive in the third, and a turnover on downs at the end of a nine-play, 49-yard drive in the third quarter. Meanwhile, Mizzou's three scores came on drives of one play for 80 yards, zero plays (punt return touchdown), three plays for 43 yards.
  • UCF's six drives in the first half: 52 plays for 283 yards. UCF's first six drives of the second half: 22 plays for 39 yards.
  • Kendial Lawrence in the first half: one carry for three yards. Kendial Lawrence in the second half: 18 carries for 101 yards.
  • E.J. Gaines, Will Ebner and Sheldon Richardson: 27.5 tackles, 7.0 tackles for loss, one sack, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, two passes broken up, four quarterback hurries. Big-time.
  • James Franklin's 19 receptions went to eight different players, and he completed a solid 63 percent of his passes. (Of course, he was also sacked five times in 35 pass attempts, a 14 percent sack rate against a defense that had not put together a very good sack rate for the season. But there's plenty of time to elaborate on that later.)

A UCF tackler bounces off of Dorial Green-Beckham

As SBN's Jason Kirk put it, the man-child known as DGB "finally has his first college highlight." In the second quarter of Mizzou's 21-16 win over UCF, he pulled off an 80-yard touchdown reception that required him to adjust slightly to pull in the pass and allow a UCF defender to bounce off of him. It was pretty.

Mizzou at UCF: Beyond the box score preview

To an extent, this game is weakness vs. strength and strength vs. weakness. Field position, passing downs and special teams could doom the Tigers, or trench warfare and a strong defensive line could move them to 3-2.
