Mizzou offense looks to bounce back after disastrous outing at Kansas State


After putting up just 12 total points against Kansas State, the Mizzou offense is looking to bounce back Saturday at home against Abilene Christian.

The leader of that group, starting quarterback Brady Cook says he's taking a chip on his shoulder going into week three.

"Defense has been awesome. They played a great game. We gave, I gave, Kansas State points," Cook said. "We can't let this be our end all be all, end of the world, end of the season, it's all over. Let's watch the tape. Let's correct it and let's come out this week and build some momentum against Abilene Christian."

Cook said his team got beat in all facets in Manhattan and the only thing to do now, is to make sure it doesn't happen again.

"All you can do to make this better is win a game on Saturday," Cook said. "We have a great plan. Everybody's pumped up and just ready to go out there and execute."

Luther Burden's name was not called a lot in the Little Apple with just one catch and one carry, but he says he's looking forward to next game.

"We all put that game past us so we just look forward," Burden said. "It's football, everything's not going to go how you want it so my mindset is if I don't get it this play, get it next play."

Leading up to Saturday, the team is working on staying together as a team.

"If we get eleven guys doing the same thing, I think we have a chance to do some really good things," said offensive lineman Connor Tollison.
