A Navy runner escapes Mizzou's grasp (KC Star)
The Navy-Missouri game looked promising with a quick TD strike, but it was all Navy after that. Running and passing their way to over 500 yards of total offense, the Naval Academy beat MU soundly 35-13. Blaine Gabbert was sacked three times and threw two INTs. A real clunker. Gary Pinkel noted that the Tigers could not keep up and tackled very poorly. Kinda takes the shine off the season, no?
So far the Big 12 is 3-2 in bowl games, with games involving Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and the national championship game with Texas yet to go. There have been some fun and close games including today's tilts between LSU and Penn State, and Northwestern and Auburn. Bobby Bowden won his last game and Ohio St. didn't choke in the Rose Bowl. Still plenty of bowl fun to go!
