Final

1st Quarter Notes

  • Team Mizzou and Brady Cook start out with the ball.
  • Tyler Macon slightly under throws a crossing route, resulting in a tipped INT by redshirt freshman DB Dylan Carnell that was returned for a touchdown.
  • Elijah Young, Dominic Lovett, JJ Hester all picked up first downs on the next Macon-led drive, and Stanford transfer Nathaniel Peat bursts through for a 21-yard touchdown to cap it off. Macon looked a lot more comfortable, and we even saw the triple option make a modified appearance.
  • You love to see it. Darius Robinson with a huge tackle for loss, but Luther Burden responds with a toe tap catch down the sideline to keep Team Mizzou’s drive going.
  • Joseph Charleston with a nice tackle for loss. The Clemson transfer looks comfortable, especially going downhill.
  • Team Mizzou driving as the first quarter ends.

2nd Quarter Notes

  • Charleston makes another great play, this time reading a deep pass to Burden and tipping the interception to himself in the end zone.
  • Jason Skivers and Isaiah McGuire combine for a sack that ends the ensuing drive.
  • Freshman Mekhi Miller gets in on the action, catches a pass from Cook down the sideline for a first down, similar to Burden’s earlier toe-tap.
  • Luther Burden takes a slant into the end zone, working against as safety and cornerback that were both covering him. Another great play from the #1 WR in this past year’s class.
  • Dominic Lovett takes a pass across the field and turns its into a 70+-yard gain with his speed.
  • Lovett then takes a pitch pass for a 21-yard touchdown, capping off an incredible drive from the sophomore.
  • Chance Luper burns his man down the field and Brady Cook tosses him a perfect ball to give Team Mizzou a lead.
  • Tyler Macon with a beautiful throw to Lovett yet again for a big gain.
  • Elijah Young caps off a balanced drive from Team Tigers with a nice cut into the end zone, tying the game right before halftime.
  • Running the 45 second drill, Cook hits a streaking Burden down the middle of the field, who then scampers out of bounds. Luper follows that up with a great toe-tap grab.
  • Barrett Banister jukes out his defender and dives for the end zone to retake the lead before the half.

3rd Quarter Notes

  • Macon under throws a deep ball to Tauskie Dove, but he adjusts to make the grab.
  • Taj Butts punches the ball into the end zone to tie the game up at 28 to open the half.
  • Cody Schrader becomes the latest running back to touch the ball, showing some burst for a nice gain.
  • Make that two great runs for Schrader. He’s carrying the load on this drive, showing off his versatility.

4th Quarter Notes

  • Cody Schrader with a violent run into the end zone to cap off a dominant drive.
  • Macon again finds Tauskie Dove for a deep ball, this time much more accurate. And would you look at that, he finds Dove on a fade route in the end zone. Team Tigers goes for two to take the lead with 4:35 left, but a bad snap threw off the play.
  • Macon will get a shot with 1:45 left.
  • Dylan Carnell picks off Macon to get his second INT of the game and clinch it for Team Mizzou.
