Post-Game Rundown: Tigers Roll Cowboys 50-6

Josey has breakout debut in the Zou against McNeese State in Tiger blowout victory

On Saturday evening, the Missouri Tigers took care of business, by overwhelming the McNeese State Cowboys by the final score of 50-6.

Coach Pinkel talked about the win.

"I thought we came out and played focused football," said Coach Pinkel. "It's not who you play. It's coming out and playing your best................ I thought tonight we were a better football team than we were a week ago."

Missouri seemingly scored at will from the outset, as freshman TB Henry Josey tallied 3 TDs and over 100 yards rushing just over one minute into the second quarter. Coach Pinkel talked about Henry Josey.

"Yeah. He can run," deadpanned Coach Pinkel. "And, he's hard to catch, too................. Henry's the kind of guy, if he gets a crease, you better watch out, because he could be gone."

T.J. Moe and Michael Egnew picked up where they left off last week, and Aldon Smith and his defensive cohorts pitched a shutout through the first three quarters. Moe finished with 10 catches for 79 yards, and Egnew chipped in with 6 catches for 52 yards.

Missouri QB Blaine Gabbert got of to a great start, as he completed his first ten pass attempts, and finished with 26 completions out of 31 pass attempts for 220 yards and 1 TD. Gabbert's TD pass to Jerrell Jackson came against a blitz, as Gabbert found Jackson down the left sideline with a perfectly thrown pass.

Gabbert did a much better job of hanging in the pocket against McNeese State, before he gave way in the third quarter to freshman QB James Franklin, who struggled a little on a series or two before he drove down and got into the end zone. Most importantly for Franklin, he has now been "in the arena", and that will help his continued development. Franklin was one of six true freshmen to play for Missouri against McNeese State. That would appear to finalize the red-shirt plans for this season's newcomers. Missouri played a lot of players in this game, but remain in position to red-shirt three-quarters of their heralded 2010 recruiting class.

Missouri rushed for 5 TDs on the game, as De'Vion Moore and Franklin each rushed for a TD, in addition to Josey's three TDs. Josey finished with 112 yards and 3 TDs on 7 carries.

Defensively, the Tigers forced five McNeese State turnovers, in addition to a blocked punt and a safety. Brad Madison and Michael Sam each registered a QB sack and a forced fumble, and Sam also blocked a punt. Kevin Rutland, Kenji Jackson, and Andrew Gachkar each came up with an interception.Scoring Summary
