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.
