Missouri – Kansas St. live game blog

November 14, 2009

By Craig Thomas

MISSOURI 17 – KANSAS ST 6: Alexander runs fade route and Gabbert finds him wide open. :20 left.

Missouri calls a timeout with :25 to go. Ball at the 16. Alexander has 96 yards receiving in the first half. We’ll see if Missouri can find him more in the second half than in recent games.

Gabbert sneaks to 44 and it’s a first down. 1:01 left. He finds Jackson again at the 36. Good drive for Mizzou going here. Alexander makes a catch and makes his man miss him.

Excellent scramble out of pressure by Blaine Gabbert out of bounds to K-State territory. Ball thrown out of Kemp’s reach downfield. Third and 2.

First down from Gabbert to Kemp with 1:41 to go. Clock is running. Then a nice pass to Jerrell Jackson to MU 46. 1:18 to go.

Three and out for Mizzou defense as QB Grant Gregory missed his target. A great punt by Kansas State to the Mizzou eight yard line. 3 mins. left.

Jared Perry needs help getting to the sideline after an injury. Mizzou will punt with 4:34 on the clock.

Tigers take over at own 43 following nice return by Wes Kemp. A first down throw from Gabbert to Alexander is ruined by a chop block by Derrick Washington. He holds his hands out, unsure of what he has done wrong. 2nd and 28

MISSOURI 10 – KANSAS ST 6: Wildcats’ drive stalls at the 18. Josh Cherry hits a 35-yarder with 6:25 before halftime.

Kansas State completes yet another pass on 3rd and 7 for a first down at the 18-yard-line.

This time a K-State penalty hurts them and they start at the 12 yard line. But a nice pass play gets the Wildcats to the 29, and another gets them to the 46.

MISSOURI 10 – KANSAS ST 3: Unbelievable catch once again for Danario Alexander. Gabbert throws him a bomb and Alexander goes up and gets it. You’ll probably see that highlight on NFL Draft Day.

Jerrell Jackson catch gets MU a first down. Gabbert faced a blitz and released quickly.

MISSOURI takes over at its own 20. Defense gets reward after all.

Brandon Banks appeared to make a catch, and the ball was stripped out of his hands for a touchback. It’s under review, but if it holds up, Missouri will take over. Could be a big break for the Tigers. Either way, a nice play by Zaviar Gooden.

END OF FIRST QUARTER: K-State is threatening. The score is 3-3.

Jacquies Smith helmet-to-helmet gives Wildcats big gain nullifying 3rd down stop. Penalties killing Mizzou already.

Tiger foolishly runs into return man Brandon Banks, so Wildcats take over at MU 40 yard line.

Two runs with short yardage to go fail. Missouri will punt and Kansas State will get good field position.

Penalty on kick return has Missouri starting at own 8 yard line. Approaching 5 mins. left in 1st quarter.

MISSOURI 3- KANSAS ST 3 – Wildcats’ Josh Cherry hit a 47-yard field goal. Wildcats only moved the ball 25 yards.

Kansas State took kickoff to own 45. Nice hit by Andrew Gachkar to force 4th down.

Grant Ressel closes opening Mizzou drive with a 22-yard field goal. So far what we’re using to seeing from “1st Half” Mizzou.

MISSOURI 3-0. Gabbert appeared to miss an open Jerrell Jackson on 3rd down.

Gabbert’s 25 yard rush takes Mizzou to K-State 10.

FIRST DRIVE: Gabbert 4 for 4 with two first downs before Tigers run once.

11:29: K-State wins the toss and Missouri will receive the ball. Jaron Baston is noticeably pumped up.

11:21: Senior day festivities beginning at Kansas State. Decent crowd has filed in but there are still some empty seats in the corners of the stadium. It looks like Missouri has a couple hundred fans in attendance.
