Why Mizzou’s special teams got low marks in our post-match football grades

It took a while for the attack to get underway. Fortunately, the Missouri defense was there for the entire game.

Neither could save the Tigers from their special teams.

Here are our post-game numbers from Missouri to Kentucky’s loss on Saturday.

The Defense of Missouri

This game was somewhat reminiscent of the Kansas State game. The Missouri defenses did everything they could to keep the counterattack in check. The Tigers did that by taking four sacks in the first half.

But when a defensive unit is on the field for most of the game, they can eventually wear out.

Chasing Chris Rodriguez was Kentucky’s offensive force in last year’s game against MU, and it was Saturday. Because no matter how improved MU’s defense has been, Rodriguez is a good defender.
