Re: When the Defense Roars: Missouri Tigers Dynasty

Tigers remain #3, Illinois almost leaps to #4

The #5 Illinois football team whooped the #7 Wisconsin Badgers, moving to first play in the Leaders division with only a loss to Penn State on their record.
As long as Illinois does not lose to Iowa at the end of the season they will finish in the Big 10 title game, and if they get lucky could have a shot at the national championship waiting for them. Illinois leaped Kansas in the Harris poll, but remained behind in the Coaches poll, which allowed Kansas to keep their #4 BCS spot.

Re: When the Defense Roars: Missouri Tigers Dynasty

Big week in terms of BCS National Championship talk

#3 Missouri travels to Manhattan Kansas to take on the underrated Wildcats who are overlooked despite giving every opponent except Arkansas trouble this year.

#1 Michigan State travels to Madision to take advantage of the reeling #10 Badgers.

#15 USF takes on #25 Rutgers

Matchup Preview *|* November 16, 2013
#3 Missouri Tigers

(5-5, 3-2 Home)
Game Notes
Kansas State does have the #17 defense in the nation and the #29 offense, but most do not expect them to defeat #3 Missouri.
The Tigers are 8 point favorites, which is curious given Missouri has been toasting competition more often that not lately.

#3 Tigers remain undefeated, lose Franklin in tight game

The #3 Missouri Tigers walked into Manhattan with some pride in themselves. After all they had fourth ranked Kansas waiting in the wings for next week. A huge change to become the #2 team in the BCS, and definitely trying to make amends for letting the BCS national championship game slip through their hands in 2007.

The Kansas State Wildcats used their distracted state to take it to them early through the air, taking a quick 7-0 lead on their opening drive.

The Tigers could not stop J. Tuggle's quick passes, as he opened up with 15 straight completed passes and a 21-7 lead. The Tigers thought their season was going up in smoke when it got even darker. KSU P. Anderson broke free and sacked James Franklin, and Frankling went down in pain.

E. Torres stepped in, and the Tiger faithful were unsure if he could lead them out of their deficit, afterall the WIldcat defense looked sure to bring their wrath upon this relatively untested youth. Torres started guiding the Tigers down the field, and the 21-7 deficit soon turned into a 24-21 lead after nearly three quarters.

C. Jones helped out, intercepting Tuggle and returning the ball 31 yards for a TD, making it 31-21.

C. Jones returned his interception 31 yards to give the Tigers a 10 point lead

E. Torres led the Tigers on another drive, making it 38-21 with just over three minutes left, and it appeared the Tigers would meet #4 Kansas for the Big XII Title next week.

KSU refused to go quietly, and stormed back, making it a 38-35 game thanks to two quick J. Tuggle to J. Cathey touchdown connections.

KSU kicked onsides, and got the kick and looked to move down the field with very little time left.

The Tiger defense held, and on a desperation attempt on 4th and 13, J. Tuggle tossed it to T. Lockett who moved the ball but got caught and taken down just shy of the 1st down marker. The play was reviewed and the Tigers took over and downed it to end the game 38-35, and keep their undefeated season alive.

Inches shy of the first down marker T. Lockett did his best

Missouri POTG: D. Steele 20 carries for 142 yards, 2 TD
E. Torres went 13-17 passing for 138 yards and 2 TD.
L. Harris had 8 tackles, 6 solo, 3 TFL, and 2 sacks

Kansas State POTG: J. Tuggle 27 of 31 passing for 348 yards, 5 TD, 1 INT
T. Thompson 10 catches for 176 yards and 2 TD
T. Ferguson 7 tackles, 2 INT.

Michigan State collapses at Camp Randall Stadium, 3 unbeatens left

#1 Michigan State had one obstacle left between them and facing Illinois in the Big 10 title game. #10 Wisconsin was that only obstacle, but it turned from an obstacle into an immovable object as the Badgers whooped the Spartans 49-7.

#2 Oregon defeated Washington State 50-14

unranked BYU defeated #15 TCU 55-22 and moved to #17 on the BCS polls, trying to climb into the top 12 for a guaranteed spot to the BCS bowls. They are the highest ranked non-AQ.

Game Notes
Up until last week this game was eagerly anticipated by Tiger fans. Now they are unsure as James Franklin is out, and that Kansas offense needs to be kept off the field and kept up with.
The Jayhawks have the most polarizing passing attack out there besides the Idaho Vandals, but lets be honest the Jayhawks have a decent conference schedule and are #1 in the nation with points per game.

The Tigers defense will be tested and should hold up, but can their offense come through?

#1 Oregon (11-0) hosts Oregon State (7-4)
#4 Illinois (10-1) travels to #14 Iowa (8-3)
#6 Maryland (10-1) hosts #11 NC State (9-2)

Re: When the Defense Roars: Missouri Tigers Dynasty

2013 Border War an instant classic

The 2013 Border War ended with one team a single victory away from the BCS National Championship, and the other team sent home heartbroken by their bitter rivals.

#3 Kansas and #2 Missouri went to war in Lawrence Kansas, and it was an amazing battle that joins the ranks of the 2007 36-28 battle and 2011's 72-69 OT game.

The game started off calmly enough with David Steele getting the Tigers on the board first with a short four yard rush. KU responded with a short seven yard pass from Webb to C. Omigie to tie the game at 7-7 after one quarter.

The second quarter was quiet and totally defensive until J. Webb connected with T. Smith on a 37 yard bomb. Unfortunately Kansas was nailed for holding on the play and had to redo. The penalty seemed odd, but Missouri was grateful for it regardless.

T. Smith's great catch didn't count

Webb pitched it to the endzone again a few plays later, and this time Missouri took matters into their own hands and intercepted the pass thanks to T. Bolden. Unfortunately Bolden exited the endzone and was tackled backwards, and since he broke the plane it was considered a safety, giving KU a precious 2 points and a 9-7 lead.

Bolden's int that gave KU 2 points

KU took the free punt and had Webb hit Omigie with a 56 yard deep pass to put them within scoring range shortly before the half, and they gained the touchdown with a 5 yard pass to E. McGriff from J. Webb with 19 seconds left in the half to take a 16-7 lead.

Omigie takes a pass and creates some yardage, it was a 56 yard play

Missouri tried to make it happen offensively but faltered twice, and then KU scored again with a 28 pass from Webb to Matthews and then KU gambled and went for two, and barely got it upon a review to take a 24-7 lead

C. Browning and the rest of the Tigers defense was restless. They were holding the Jayhawks to a season low in points so far, but were losing because the offense could not score without Franklin. Browning stepped up and made a great play, intercepting Webb and returning it 21 yards for a pick 6, to make it 24-14 KU.

C Browning intercepts J. Webb

KU took the kickoff and Webb immediately targeted Browning again, attempting to right the wrong from the previous play. Instead Browning again got the ball and returned it 33 yards this time to make it 24-21 with 2:07 left in the third quarter.

Browning's second interception for a pick 6 in less than 50 seconds

Despite Browning's amazing attempt, the MU offense could not get anything going and the Jayhawks took a 31-21 lead when Webb connected with C. Omigie for a 39 yard hookup for a touchdown with 26 seconds left in the third quarter.

The Jayhawks drove the ball deep into Tiger territory, and then J. Vincent stepped up big time and intercepted Webb and returned the ball 59 yards to put the Tigers in great field position. E. Torries capitalized with a 27 yard pass to D. Steele, and the Tigers pulled within 3, 31-28 with 2:16 left.

The Jayhawks ran the clock out unfortunately, as the Tigers had no timeouts remaining and the Jayhawks kept their dream season alive with the 31-28 heart breaking victory.

After the game Turner Gill told the media: "It was a fantastic game. In 2007 it was heartbreaking to lose the undefeated season to them I heard, and it was amazing to get some payback for that 72-69 overtime loss from two years ago, and them taking the BCS bid and Big XII title from us last year. They played hard, but honestly we were soo much better. They got lucky with the two pick 6's. We dominated statistically and on the field."

Kansas POTG: 34 of 49 passing for 547 yards, 4 TD, 4 INT, sacked 2 times
C. Omigie caught 7 passes for 218 yards and 2 TD.

Missouri POTG: C Browning 6 tackles, 5 of them solo, 1 TFL, 2 int, 2 defensive TD
T. Bolden 8 tackles, 2 solo, 3 TFL, 1 sack

Re: When the Defense Roars: Missouri Tigers Dynasty

Jayhawks leap to 2nd in BCS, Tigers fall to 6th

Due to no major upsets, the top 10 in the BCS is still relatively unchanged.
Missouri only fell to #6, which shocked and annoyed fans of Michigan State which only lost to Wisconsin who is #5 in the current standings. Unfortunately the Spartans lost convincingly 49-7 which Missouri lost a more one sided than it looks 31-28 contest to the current #2 who has no losses while Wisconsin has two losses.

Re: When the Defense Roars: Missouri Tigers Dynasty

Missouri Tigers should get BCS bid

The BCS Bowl bids are always hard to get into, but this year especially so.
WIth the SEC champion likely to be ranked below #16, that opens the door for an non-AQ to get an auto-bid. Which reduces the number of at larges to 2. Wisconsin is #5 and has no games left, and Missouri is #6.
Due to Texas Tech bringing down Missouri's SOS, it is conceivable that even if they go 11-1 they could miss a BCS Bowl.
