Missouri’s offense scored four times in the first half and the defense added an interception for a touchdown as the Tigers dominated Iowa State 52-20 in Ames Saturday. Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel sliced up the defense with his passing, and Cyclone coach Gene Chizik says they couldn’t seem to get him under wraps.
Chizik says Daniel is a great quarterback and the defense couldn’t seem to get him stopped and get off the field. The Cyclones had just 35 less yards than Missouri on offense, but couldn’t match the Tigers in points. Chizik says he was happy to see the team keep working throughout the game, as he said they never gave up or quit playing..
Iowa State closes the season at Kansas State, and Chizik says ending the nine-game losing streak would be a good way to end the season, as the team needs a win. Iowa State is now 2-9 on the season, and 0-7 in the Big 12.
