With 8:55 left in the fourth quarter MU's Jeremy Maclin limped off the field favoring his left ankle after failing to complete a passing route on a third-and-12 play. Two minutes later, Maclin was carted off the field. He didn’t play again. Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said Maclin twisted his ankle. Pinkel said X-rays were negative and team officials plan to have Maclin undergo a precautionary MRI either Sunday or Monday.
