Missouri Vs. Iowa State: Tigers Use Fast Start To Blow Out Cyclones, 52-17

The Missouri Tigers used a strong first quarter to run away and defeat the Iowa St. Cyclones, 52-17. Missouri scored touchdowns on their first four possessions and were leading 31-10 at the half. The Missouri offense was able to move the ball at will and scored their touchdowns on drives that were just around three minutes.

Missouri quarterback James Franklin was the player of the game as he was 20-for-28 with 289 yards, three touchdowns; plus he rushed for 84 yards and had two more touchdowns. Then running back Henry Josey rushed for 129 yards and a score. Wide receiver Michael Egnew also got in on the action by hauling in six receptions with 105 yards and a touchdown.

The Missouri defense also had a good performance by forcing three turnovers and holding Iowa State running back James White to only 61 yards and one of his runs was for 41 yards, and then they held starting quarterback Steele Jantz to 161 passing yards. 

The win puts the Tigers back at .500 on the year with their 3-3 record and next week they host the Oklahoma St. Cowboys.
