Missouri's Jeremy Maclin Breaks Record

MANHATTAN, Kan. - With a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, Missouri freshman wide receiver Jeremy Maclin just broke the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision record for all-purpose yards gained by a freshman. It was also Missouri's first kickoff return for a touchdown since 1982, which was the longest drought in the country.

Missouri leads 14-3 midway through the first quarter.

Maclin broke the record set by Rutgers' Terrell Willis in 1993.

Before the kickoff, Missouri made a goal-line stand. Kansas State quarterback Josh Freeman tried a quarterback bootleg on third-and-goal from the 2-yard line, but he was stuffed. The crowd wanted the Wildcats to go for it, but they kicked an 18-yard field goal.
