Missouri Tigers at #20 Kansas State Wildcats - Snyder Family Stadium, Manhattan, Kan. (Oct. 8, 2011)

1st Quarter

• Mizzou took the opening kick but QB James Franklin was intercepted on the first snap of the game. That broke a streak of 108 consecutive pass attempts by Franklin without an interception. His only other pick of the season came in the third quarter against Miami (Ohio)...

• The Wildcats needed only 21 yards to drive for the opening score of the game, and they punched the ball in for a TD on a 3rd-and-1 from the 2-yardline for a quick 7-0 lead at the 11:23 mark...

• The Tigers went 3-and-out and the Wildcats converted a crucial 3rd-and-10 to spark another scoring drive. This time, the Mizzou defense held in the red zone and limited the Wildcats to a field goal, but the 20-yard kick made it 10-0 Kansas State at the 3:19 mark...

• Junior TB Kendial Lawrence got in the game and had his first carry since the season opener against Miami (Ohio). Lawrence missed games #2-4 after cracking a fibula in practice prior to the Arizona State game...

• The quarter ended with K-State holding a 10-0 lead. The Wildcats held a time of possession advantage of 11:10-to-3:50 in the quarter, and KSU ran 19 plays to Mizzou's 7 in the opening period, and managed an edge in total offense of 74 yards to Mizzou's 0...

• The slow start was uncharacteristic of Mizzou in 2011, as the Tigers came into the game holding a scoring edge of 45-17 in the first quarter...

2nd Quarter

• Mizzou got on the board with a nice drive that broke down in the redzone. But senior PK Grant Ressel came on to nail a 32-yard field goal to close the deficit to 10-3 at the 9:42 mark. Mizzou's drive took 12 plays and covered 58 yards, taking 4:31 of clock time. TB Henry Josey carried 5 times on the drive for 38 yards. The 12-play drive tied for the longest scoring drive (in terms of plays) by MU this season, equaling a 12-play drive at Arizona State that ended in a touchdown run by Franklin...

• Ressel's field goal was the 50th of his career, and puts him just 9 behind the MU career leader Jeff Wolfert, who had 59 field goals from 2006-08. The kick gave Ressel 252 career points, and that tied him with former TB Zack Abron for 3rd-place on the MU career scoring chart. See the sidebar on page 12 of MU's Game Notes for the updated career scoring list...

• Senior DE Jacquies Smith came up with a QB sack to force a Wildcat punt with 1:32 left in the half. It was Smith's first sack of the season and the 9th of his career...

• The Tigers drove for a potential field to close the half, but a 43-yarder went wide right and the half ended with K-State holding a 10-3 lead...

• Mizzou rolled to 156 yards of offense in the 2nd quarter, and limited the Wildcats to just 20 yards...

• The 3 1st-half points by Mizzou was the fewest in a game since the 2010 season opener vs. Illinois, when the Tigers trailed, 13-3 in St. Louis, Mo. Mizzou rallied in that one to outscore the Illini 20-0 in the 2nd half to post a 23-13 win...

3rd Quarter

• Mizzou's defense came up big to open the half as junior CB Kip Edwards jumped a slant pass on the 2nd play of the quarter for an interception that gave MU the ball at the K-State 36-yardline. It was the first INT of the year for Edwards and the 3rd of his career. Mizzou couldn't capitalize however, as the drive stalled and a 36-yard field goal attempt went wide left, keeping the score at 10-3...

• Senior DT Terrell Resonno got his first sack of the season (3rd career) to force a Wildcat punt, but Mizzou was flagged for roughing the punter on the ensuing play to extend the Wildcat drive...

• K-State took advantage of the fresh set of downs, and went downfield for a TD to take a 17-3 lead with 5:50 left...

• Later in the quarter, Jacquies Smith was credited with his second sack of the game, bringing his career total to 10...

4th Quarter

• On Missouri's first possession of the fourth quarter, Franklin hit WR Brandon Gerau over the middle for a gain of 18, marking Gerau's longest reception of the season...

• The Tigers cut the lead to 24-10 on a two yard run by Henry Josey on 4th-and-goal, Josey's fifth rushing score of the season and the 10th of his career, capping a 12 play, 79 yard drive in 3:11...

• Mizzou had two plays overturned in their favor on the drive. Early on, Franklin hit Jerrell Jackson down the sideline but the play was ruled incomplete. After review, it was determined that Jackson got a foot down, giving the Tigers 18 yards on the play. Later, on 4th-and-4, Franklin completed a pass to Moe for the first down, but he was then hit and fumbled the ball, which was recovered by the Wildcats. However, the replay showed that Moe caught the ball with his knee on the ground, making him down and giving Missouri the first down which led to Josey's score...

• Missouri chipped into the lead with another touchdown on their next possession, scoring on a 1-yard touchdown by Franklin to end a scoring drive that went eight plays for 74 yards in 1:30...

• Another crucial review went Missouri's way on the drive, as Franklin found Egnew for a first down inside the 20. The ball popped out and was recovered by Kansas State, but the replay showed that Egnew's elbow had hit the ground first, keeping possession with Missouri...

• Franklin hit Egnew three times on the drive, giving the Tiger tight end eight catches on the day, which matches his season total coming into the game...
