The Missouri Tigers moved to 3-0 for the first time since 2010 with a 45-28 victory over the Indiana Hoosiers.
Despite turning the ball over three times early, the Tigers evened the tunrover margin including a 49-yard Kony Ealy interception return for touchdown.
James Franklin shook off two early picks, throwing two touchdowns and running for another with 400 total yards gained in the air and on the ground. Dorial Green-Beckham caught one of the touchdowns as one of his eight catches for 105 yards. Marcus Lucas led the team with 10 receptions and 101 yards.
Missouri held Indiana’s offense at bay, using an innovative 3-3-5 scheme in the second half upon the return of starting linebacker Andrew Wilson.
The Tigers close out the non-conference season Saturday at home facing the Arkansas State Red Wolves. Coverage can be heard on KTGR with Tiger Gameday at 3:30 for a 6:30 kick at Memorial Stadium.
