COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Just when it looked like Texas could pack this one away, the Missouri running game has pushed the Tigers back in the game.
The Tigers' offensive line started exerting some push at the start of the second quarter. And the running between the tackles of Derrick Washington and freshman Kendial Lawrence were the biggest reason for the Tigers' 81-yard TD drive.
But the biggest reason was the running game against Texas' biggest defensive strength. The Longhorns lead the nation allowing 35.8 rushing yards per game.
Missouri got more than that on the ground on the last drive, mashing them back in the game.
