Mizzou quarterback Brady Cook earns national recognition following career-best game


Mizzou quarterback Brady Cook received a couple of weekly honors, on Monday, after he helped lead his team to a come-from-behind win against No. 15 Kansas State on Saturday.

Cook was named to the Davey O'Brien Award's Great 8 List for Week 3 and also named one of the Manning Award's stars of the week. The St. Louis native has officially been added to the Midseason Watch List and is now eligible to be named the 2023 Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award winner. The O'Brein Award will be announcing its quarterback of the week on Tuesday.

QB one finished 23-of-35 for a career-high 356 yards and two touchdowns. The top-25 win was the first time he has thrown for more than 300 yards in his Tiger career. He also picked up his 10th career rushing touchdown, which was the first rushing score that K-State has allowed in 2023.

In the win, Cook also broke former Mizzou great Chase Daniels' program record for consecutive passes without an interceptions, with a mark of 281 attempts. That mark surpassed Daniels' 254, which was set from Nov. 4, 2006 to Sept. 15, 2007. He is also just the ninth player in program history to surpasss 20 passing and 10 rushing touchdowns over a career, becoming the first to reach both marks since James Franklin.

Up next - Cook and the Tigers will travel to St. Louis to host Memphis at the Dome on Saturday, Sept. 23. Kickoff is slated for 6:30 p.m.
