COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou One squad scored 21 unanswered points to earn a 21-14 win over Tiger Two in the annual Black & Gold scrimmage at Faurot Field on Saturday afternoon in Columbia, Mo.
The Tiger Two squad, primarily made up of reserves, began the game with a 14-0 advantage on the scoreboard, but was unable to hold on as senior QB James Franklin, junior TB Marcus Murphy and the starters tied the game by halftime and watched the reserves score a late touchdown to earn the win.
Franklin hit 9-of-15 passes in his limited playing time and Murphy reeled off 24 yards on consecutive carries to produce the game's first score. The Tiger No. 1 offense moved the football 60 yards on the drive, which saw a six-yard score from Murphy to cap the possession.
The Mizzou One defense did not allow a first down for most of the first half and junior TB Henry Josey knotted the game at 14-14 with a one-yard run late in the second quarter. A crowd of 18,384 saw Josey earn his first playing time since the 2011 season when he suffered a major knee injury in a win over Texas. Josey finished the game carrying eight times for 13 yards.
The second half was a defensive stalemate until the final minutes, when Mizzou One did earn the win late on a three-yard rush from redshirt freshman TB Andrew Stevens. Freshmen signal callers Trent Hosick and Eddie Printz combined to lead the late scoring drive and the pair combined to complete their final six throws (three apiece) for 52 yards.
Another notable performance for Missouri came from sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham. The Springfield, Mo. native caught three passes for 49 yards, including a 35-yard catch and run down the sideline.
Defensively, senior DE Michael Sam closed out a strong spring camp, and had four tackles, including two sacks on the day. Sophomore CB Xavier Smith had three tackles, an interception and a pass broken up, while junior DT Matt Hoch had three stops and an acrobatic interception while falling onto his back after leaped to grab a pass that he had deflected at the line of scrimmage.
