Mizzou gets crushed by Kansas State 40-12 in the Little Apple


The Mizzou football team was dominated in the first road game of the season losing to Kansas State 40-12.

The Tigers offense struggled to move the ball with starting quarterback Brady Cook going 15/26 for 128 yards and two interceptions. Jack Abraham came in for a short time in the second half doing 0/3 and also having two picks.

Cook was Mizzou's leading rusher on the day with 13 carries for 56 yards. Cody Schrader had five carries for 18 yards and the only touchdown.

After a big week one, Luther Burden's name was not called a lot against the Wildcats as he only had one reception for three yards and one carry for six.

The Tigers run defense was first in the country after week one, but Deuce Vaughn dominated on the ground with 145 yards and two touchdowns.

In the 40 points, the Tigers gave up a big 76-yard punt return for a touchdown.

Up next - Mizzou will return home to take on Abilene Christian Sept. 17 at 11 a.m.
