They're trading haymakers in Columbia, as the No. 4 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys hold a 24-17 lead over the Missouri Tigers at the end of the first half. Brandon Weeden has thrown the pigskin all across the field in the Tigers, throwing for 270 yards on 24-36 passing and three touchdowns.
While Oklahoma State has put points on the board via the aerial attack, Missouri has found a ton of success via the ground game. Henry Josey, currently 7th in the nation in rushing yards/game, has run wild against the porous Cowboys defense. 94 yards on the ground on 16 carries has stabilized Coach Gary Pinkel's offensive attack. Missouri was able to get touchdown scores from Kendial Lawrence (18-yard TD run) and T.J. Moe (34-yard TD catch from James Franklin) to give us a 24-17 game at Faurot Field.
Oklahoma State will receive the ball in the second half versus Missouri, but could be without Hubert Anyiam. Anyiam left the game in the second quarter with an apparent foot injury and went to the locker room. He did not return to the field prior to the half.
