-- This moment didn't seal a victory for Mizzou. It wasn't a great feat of human athleticism. Hell, it didn't even come in a win. But Jimmy Jackson's four-yard touchdown plunge on an option late in the third quarter against Oklahoma meant one thing to both Mizzou players and fans: this team was ready to compete with the best. While we all know how Oklahoma refuted those claims (and rightfully so after the Big 12 Championship), Mizzou had stood toe-to-toe with the conference's best in Norman and was another solid quarter of turnover-free football from being the team to beat in the Big 12. Mizzou's late lead in Norman, no matter how brief, was a signal to Mizzou fans and to the nation that this team was ready for the big time and ready for big stages.
