Although this wasn’t a blowout, the Tigers were beat up physically and frazzled mentally more than the score indicated. They couldn’t run the ball when they wanted to or stop the run when they needed to. Their receivers couldn’t get separation from Nebraska defensive backs, no matter how long Blaine Gabbert scampered around in the backfield. Their gambling defense paid some overdue bills, giving up four touchdowns of 40 yards or more. They squandered all three timeouts in the third quarter, and Gabbert was so out of sorts he tried to call a fourth timeout and was assessed a delay-of-game penalty.

Reason to hope: Missouri — if it rebounds as expected — should finish the regular season 11-1. Reason to mope: That still likely won’t be enough for the Tigers to make it back to the Big 12 championship game because Nebraska will likely finish 11-1 and owns the tiebreaker over Missouri.

If Nebraska wins the Big 12 title – which is very possible at this point, it is forever going to be a stain on the conference. The team that won the championship left the next season to go to the Big 10. From their point of view, they will always be able to say that they beat everyone in the B12 and left to go to greener pastures because the competition wasn’t good enough. That really bites and it’s unacceptable as a B12 fan.

The Big 12 North is Nebraska's to lose. The Huskers made sure of that early, unleashing one of the most dominant quarters by any team in Big 12 play this season. Missouri didn't fall in a 24-0 hole early, Nebraska dug that thing with a week of preparation, and once the Tigers showed up (or didn't show up) the Huskers grabbed them by the collar and threw them in.
