Missouri had fourth and one at the KU 36 and went for it. Once again, empty quarterback Chase Daniel was in the shotgun. His bubble screen to tight end Martin Rucker was stuffed for a loss.
The Tigers do not _ repeat, do not _ have a power running game. Somewhere up in that great coaching box in the sky, Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler are watching and grinding their teeth.
The failure didn't harm the Tigers, though. Kansas reached the Missouri 16 but had to settle for a 45-yard field goal. Scott Webb was wide left. He was wide right _ off the upright _ on a 33-yarder on the Jayhawks' previous possession.
