    Tigers Eek Out Win

    Gainesville, FL- The Swamp is where highly ranked teams go to die and Mizzou barely escaped their fate Saturday night. Mizzou needed a final minute TD from ate freshman Dorial Green-Beckham to pull out a win.

    Florida did a great job shutting down Heisman candidate James Franklin in the run game. He managed only 50 yards on 11 carries, but they failed to slow down the dual threat QB in the passing game as he threw for 364 yards and 4 TDs with 2 interceptions. True freshman DGB was the star on the outside hauling in 4 passes for 119 yards and the game winning score with under :30 left.

    The defense has begun to step up and force turnovers as Mizzou forced 3 interceptions and returned a fumble by Jacoby Brisett for a TD.

    Offensive Players of the Game
    James Franklin: 21-35 364 yards 3 TDs and 2 interceptions
    Dorial Green-Beckham: 4 catches 119 yards 1 TD

    Defensive Player of the Game:
    Kenronte Walker: 9 tackles, 1 interception, 1 sack
