Blaine Gabbert's First Incomplete Pass Comes Halfway Through 2nd Quarter

Mizzou was leading Miami (OH) 28-3 in the middle of the second quarter and for the first time all game Blaine Gabbert threw an incomplete pass.

↵

He was 6-of-7 for 54 yards at that point.

↵

I suggested that Mizzou should focus on getting Gabbert up to speed after an inefficient week against San Diego State.

↵

Mizzou's top three running backs at the time of Gabbert's first incomplete pass had 11 carries for 135 yards and three touchdowns.

↵

So it's not Gabbert and the passing game that are helping Mizzou dominate the RedHawks. It's the running game.
