Mizzou improved to 8-1 on the season to mark the third consecutive season and fourth time in five years the Tigers started the year 8-1.
The win improved Mizzou's consecutive non-conference home game win streak to 71, dating back to early in the 2005-06 season.
The Tigers are now 14-0 in home non-conference games under Head Coach Frank Haith. All 14 of the victories have been by double figures.
The Tigers improved to 9-0 against Ohio Valley Conference teams since the 2003-04 season.
Mizzou is in the midst of a 23-game winning streak in the month of December. The Tigers have not lost in December since Dec. 9, 2009.
Tennessee State's 38 points were the fewest the Tigers have allowed since a 87-36 victory over Fairleigh Dickinson on Dec. 12, 2009.
The Tigers grabbed 52 rebounds in the contest to mark the eighth time in nine games Mizzou has at least 40 in a game and the third time they had at least 50. The Tigers entered the game ranked fourth nationally with 45.0 rebounds per contest.
Mizzou held Tennessee State to 38 points on 23.8 percent (15-63) shooting from the floor, both season lows for Tiger opponents.
