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)
