Notes from the Colorado game

October 31, 2009

By Craig Thomas

Missouri beat Colorado today, 36-17, to move to 1-3 in conference play. Here are some notes from Boulder.

– The Tigers outgained Colorado 400 yards to 176. Most of that came from the Mizzou rushing game, which totaled 184 yards, and the defense, which allowed minus-14.

– Missouri won the turnover battle with three fumble recoveries and an interception. Colorado picked off Blaine Gabbert twice.

– Gabbert completed 17 of 29 passes for 192 yards. He threw two touchdowns.

– Danario Alexander had another big game with eight catches for 123 yards (both team highs).

– MU has just six second-half points through four Big 12 games.

– Missouri has now beaten Colorado four years in a row, by an average of over 34 points per game.

– Here’s video of Jerrell Jackson’s one-handed catch. (<<HIGH QUALITY UPDATE)

Getting set for the game in Boulder

The Missourian crew is getting set for the game here at Folsom Field in Boulder. I hope you’re all enjoying your Halloween wherever you are. Missouri announced yesterday that kickoff specialist Tanner Mills will not play in today’s game due to an undisclosed disciplinary issue. The understanding in the press box is that Grant Ressel will likely take over the kickoff duties for today (I wouldn’t bet on this, it’s possible coach Gary Pinkel might go to one of his other kickers or punters.)

Missouri’s game against Baylor on Nov. 7 will be the Tigers’ first game of the season that won’t be on TV. The last time the team played a game that wasn’t on TV was on Nov. 1, 2008. The opponent was–you guessed it, Baylor. Missouri won 31-28 after Jeff Wolfert made a late field goal.
