A Little Mizzou Momentum at Half

NORMAN, Okla. - Finally, Missouri had some of their offensive punch back, and just before the half ended.

The Tigers went on a 9 play, 85 yard drive that was capped with a Jeff Wolfert field goal as time expired, cutting the Sooner lead to 17-10 as we've hit the end of the first half. The key plays: Daniel's 31 yard pass to Danario Alexander that put the Tigers in OU territory with just under 20 seconds left, and the 22 yard pass on the next play to Will Franklin, who dove out of bounds at the OU two yard line with just two seconds left, allowing Mizzou to pick up some much needed points.

Marching Mizzou has taken the field here in Norman, something that's very odd if you've watched a lot of Southern football. Usually, the opposing band has no chance to get on the field, but in the Big 12, things are a little more diplomatic. In fact, VERY diplomatic. As the Mizzou band public announcer yelled to fans to cheer for Mizzou, the OU fans didn't boo at all, remaining silent for the Missouri fans to cheer.

As the Missouri Waltz is being played, it's time for me to refuel on caffeine! Second half starts in 15 minutes.
