Tigers Run Away From Red Hawks 51-13

Tigers run all over the Zou as balanced attack dooms the Red Hawks on the day

On Saturday afternoon, the #24 Missouri Tigers (4-0) defeated the Miami (OH) Redhawks (2-2) by the final score of 51-13.

The Tigers jumped out in front early, after Andrew Gachkar dislodged the football from Miami (OH) WR Armond Robinson on the game's second play, and Carl Gettis scooped it up and ran it in from 19 yards out for the score.

The early advantage widened, as Missouri racked up 129 first quarter rushing yards, including TD runs of 39 yards by Kendial Lawrence and 28 yards by Henry Josey, and enjoyed a 21-0 lead at the end of the first period.

The Tigers came into this game prepared to win, after last week's close call, and an intense week of practice. Coach Pinkel talked about his team's win.

"It's a great win," said Coach Pinkel. "It was not a fun week around here. But, we got the goal accomplished. I thought we played well overall............... It's very hard to win. I thought we played our A game.............. I thought our number one defense really played well. We got a lot of young players some work............... I know it is hard to win. And, I told our team, that's a very, very good win for us. You're going to see all over the country, like we were last week, when you're playing teams you're supposed to beat, and you're fighting for your life. I'm just glad we were attentive, and focused."

Missouri put forth a balanced attack, with 236 yards rushing on 38 carries (6.2 yds./carry), and 233 yards passing, on 17 completions out of 23 pass attempts. Each of Missouri's top four backs compiled impressive yards per carry averages on the day, and Blaine Gabbert and James Franklin each enjoyed successful passing games.

T.J. Moe led the Tigers in receiving, with 7 catches for 95 yards.

The Missouri defense enjoyed an impressive day, as well, holding Miami (OH) to 2.1 yards per rushing attempt, and causing 3 turnovers, which were huge in this game, as the Tigers enjoyed a 3 to 1 turnover margin against the Redhawks.

The Tigers played without Aldon Smith, Luke Lambert, Jasper Simmons, and Jerrell Jackson due to injuries. Coach Pinkel indicated that they should get all of them back for Colorado. L'Damian Washington started in place of Jackson, and Zaviar Gooden was also in the starting line up. Michael Sam saw extensive playing time, and came up with an interception, which he returned 90 yards for a TD, only to have it called back to the 38 yard line on a block in the back called on the return.

Grant Ressel made good on a 50-yard FG, but had one of his PAT attempts bounce off of the upright, snapping Missouri's consecutive PAT streak. Afterward, Ressel, who was visibly upset following his miss, had this to say about the streak ending missed kick.

"I shouldn't of missed it," said Ressel. "I tried to get a little more height on it, and I didn't get my hips through and get around on the ball."

Missouri played 63 players in this game, and guys like James Franklin, Marcus Murphy, and E.J. Gaines enjoyed significant success.
