Alexander

By Robert Mays

A huge performance against Nevada helped Danario Alexander become the second Missouri Tiger this season to be named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week.

Alexander hauled in nine receptions for 170 yards and two touchdowns in Missouri’s 31-21 victory last Friday that moved the Tigers to 4-0 on the season.

Alexander’s 170 yards made for the 11th-best total in Missouri history and was his second straight game with multiple touchdowns.

He currently ranks fifth in the Big 12 with 101 receiving yards per game, and his two touchdowns against Nevada helped move him into a tie for eight place on MU’s all-time touchdown receptions list.
