College Football, Week 4: Mizzou, Kansas And Kansas State Take Care Of Business

KU, MU and KSU all took home victories on Saturday making for a good weekend of college football in Kansas City.

Mizzou and Kansas cruised on Saturday beating Miami (OH) and New Mexico State, respectively. Kansas State didn't dominate by any means but took down Central Florida, 17-13.

The timing of it all worked well, too. KSU started at 11:30 a.m., and rolled into the Mizzou game at 1:00 p.m. and the day ended with KU at 6:00 p.m.

Here's a snapshot of the weekend in college football.

Mizzou vs. Miami (OH): 51-13

This was all Mizzou, all the time right from the start. Or, more accurately, all the Mizzou run game, all the time.

Things got started off right for Mizzou as they scored eight seconds into the game on a fumble return for a touchdown. Blaine Gabbert was gone by the third quarter as backup QB James Franklin came in for the rest of the 51-13 game.

Five different Mizzou running backs scored and Gabbert even ran one in. Overall, it was a solid day for Mizzou.

Beshears had three total scores and the Jayhawks lead the rest of the way.

Jordan Webb ended with 249 yards and a touchdown while James Sims topped all runners at 115 yards. He added another 49 receiving.

Kansas State vs. Central Florida: 17-13

This one was a little scary for the Wildcats. UCF lead 7-0 at halftime and KSU didn't get on the board until late in the third quarter.

By the fourth, UCF took a 10-3 lead and KU's Carson Coffman quickly responded hitting Aubrey Quarles for a 58-yard touchdown.

After another UCF field goal, KSU finally ended the game on a 13-play, 67-yard touchdown drive.
