Pre-Game
*-Mizzou is looking for its first win in Lincoln since 1978, when the unranked Tigers upset the 2nd-ranked Huskers, 35-31.  On that day, MU running back James Wilder ran for 181 yards and 4 TDs (3 in the 2nd half), QB Phil Bradley threw for 187 yards and 1 TD, and TE Kellen Winslow had 132 yards receiving and 1 TD...

*-Mizzou won the toss and chose to receive the ball.  This continued a trend that has seen MU take the opening kick in every game this season to this point... 

1st Quarter
*-Mizzou’s defense created a turnover on their opening series, as LB Brock Christopher forced his first fumble of the season, as DE Xzavie Jackson pounced on his 2nd fumble recovery of the year at the Husker 46-yardline...

*-Mizzou was held without a score on each of its first three possessions, marking only the 2nd time this season that the Tigers haven’t scored on at least one of their initial three drives (Kansas State was the other).  In the KSU game, MU did not score on any of its first 3 possessions, and fell behind 7-3 before scoring on 7 straight possessions (minus a “take-a-knee” situation to end the 1st half), en route to a 41-21 win on Oct. 21st in Columbia...

*-Nebraska held a 10-0 lead at the end of the quarter, as the Huskers owned a sizeable advantage in total offense of 136-to-26.  Mizzou was 0-of-3 on 3rd-down conversions in the quarter, while NU was 3-of-4... 

2nd Quarter
*-True freshman WR Danario Alexander took a short pass 49 yards early in the quarter down to the Nebraska 31-yardline.  It was a career-long reception for Alexander, who came into the game with 4 catches for 40 yards and a previous long of 16.  Mizzou had just 24 yards of offense to that point on its previous 13 snaps...

*-Alexander later in the quarter caught a pass for 17 yards, giving him 2 catches for 66 yards, with both numbers equaling career highs.  His previous bests coming into today were 2 catches for 21 yards against Ole Miss...

*-PK Jeff Wolfert put MU on the board with 9:58 left in the quarter on a 26-yard FG that cut the deficit to 17-3.  The field goal was the 36th-consecutive combined kick (FGs and PATs) made by Wolfert, including his 9th-straight FG.  He entered the game having made 11-of-13 FGs on the season, and 34-of-34 on PATs...

*- Points off turnovers were huge in Nebraska’s favor as they built their 27-3 lead, as the Huskers turned 2 MU INTs (both off deflected passes) into 14 points, while Mizzou could not manage any points off of 1 Husker turnover...

*-Wolfert later connected on a career-long 54-yard FG as time expired to end the quarter, surpassing his previous long of 44 yards.  It was the longest MU field goal since 1986 when Tom Whelihan set the MU record on a 62-yard FG made against Colorado.  Wolfert’s kick goes into the record books as tied for 2nd-longest in school history, tying him with Whelihan, who booted a 54-yarder against Oklahoma State in 1985.  It was the 16th FG in MU school history of 50 yards or more, and the first since Adam Crossett made a 50-yarder in the 2005 Independence Bowl...

*- Wolfert’s kick was the longest field goal ever made by an opponent at Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium, breaking the old mark of 52 yards by Auburn’s Al Del Greco in 1981... 
 

3rd Quarter
*-The Tigers got into the endzone for the 1st time today with 5:46 left in the quarter as QB Chase Daniel hit TE Martin Rucker on a 6-yard TD pass to cut the score to 27-13.  That capped a 10-play, 62-yard drive and gave Daniel his 20th TD pass of the season, extending his MU single-season record.  The TD catch was Rucker’s 4th of the season, and 9th of his career...

4th Quarter
*-The Tigers converted two key fourth downs on their first drive of the fourth quarter to pull within 34-20. Chase Daniel completed an 11-yard pass to Will Franklin on a fourth-and-7 at the Nebraska 37, and then on the 18th play of an 80-yard drive, found Chase Coffman for a 19-yard touchdown on fourth-and-16...

*-Daniel broke Jeff Handy’s single-season passing yardage record of 2,463 yards on the touchdown pass to Coffman. With his 244 yards on Saturday, Daniel now has 2,531 passing yards through Mizzou’s 10 games...

*-Daniel also passed Brad Smith’s 2004 campaign to move into No. 4 on the single-season total offense chart. With his 257 yards of total offense on Saturday, Daniel has amassed 2,866 total yards in the 10 games this season.
