Mizzou 'Dodged A Bullet' Against San Diego State

Rock M Nation always has an excellent look at the Mizzou football games that go Beyond The Box Score.

I found this week's particularly interesting because I had just been wondering how many times Mizzou wins a game like the one they played against San Diego State.

Apparently it's only a couple of times out of ten, if you believe the statistics.

Not that we didn't know that already, but the play-by-play numbers and turnovers suggest that if this exact game, with these exact plays, had taken place ten times, San Diego State would have probably won seven or eight.

RMN writes that Mizzou should be "ecstatic" they're 3-0 at this point. From here, it's looking more and more like the 5-0 many people predicted (then again SDSU was supposed to be an easy victory).

As another Kansas City team, the Chiefs, are finding out: A win is a win no matter how ugly it is.

Check out Rock M Nation's excellent run down of the game.
