Last Week’s Result: Lost to Indiana 31-27

Mississippi State’s win at LSU was surprising, but the most shocking result Saturday was Missouri’s 31-27 home loss to the Indiana Hoosiers. After all, this is an Indiana team that lost to Bowling Green one week ago.

  • After the Tigers’ defense was the story against UCF in Week 3, Mizzou allowed 493 yards of total offense to the Hoosiers. Indiana ran for 252 yards and threw for 241, and most importantly, did not turn the ball over.

    Maty Mauk continued his strong offensive performance as the sophomore signal caller completed 28 of 47 passes for 326 yards and two touchdowns. However, Mauk was intercepted for the third time this season. In all, the Tigers had nearly 500 yards of offense, including 119 yards by Russell Hansbrough. But, ten penalties for 75 yards proved costly.

    Now, Missouri will officially begin their quest to defend the 2013 SEC East Championship. Despite the loss to Indiana, because of the unsteady nature of the East so far, Mizzou is as much in the mix as anyone.
