Columbia, Mo. - The University of Missouri Football team held its second major scrimmage of its 2013 spring camp Saturday morning inside the Dan Devine Indoor Pavilion. In the controlled and situational scrimmage, the Tiger defense claimed the upper hand, and came away with a 29-9 victory over their offensive counterparts.

The defense closed the day out in strong fashion, grabbing a pair of interceptions during two-minute drill work. Sophomore CB David Johnson got the first one against the #1 offense, and shortly after that, senior LB Donovan Bonner picked off a deflected pass for the #1 defense.

Senior DE Michael Sam had a big day Saturday, as he recovered a pair of fumbles and had a 1/2 sack to help lead the defense, while fellow line mate Matt Hoch forced a fumble and was credited with 1 1/2 sacks of his own.

It wasn't all defense on Saturday, as all five Tiger quarterbacks each threw a touchdown pass. The biggest play of the day came when senior QB James Franklin found sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham down the left sideline late in the day for what was a 50-yard catch-and-run touchdown play. Green-Beckham caught the nicely-thrown ball about 20 yards downfield, and he made one move to break a tackle as he burst to paydirt. Green-Beckham had a huge day, as he led all receivers with 8 receptions for 135 yards and the score.

Franklin led all QBs with 167 yards passing, while freshman Maty Mauck added 143 and Corbin Berkstresser 120.

The Tigers wrap up their 2013 spring camp this week, and will hold a full-scale practice on Tuesday, followed by a light workout Thursday afternoon. That will mark the final preparation for the 2013 Black & Gold Spring Game, set for Saturday, April 20th at Faurot Field/Memorial Stadium at 1 p.m.
