The Missouri football team’s victory over No. 20 Illinois was seemingly sealed, but Illinois quarterback Juice Williams and his receivers threw a scare into the Tigers.
Tony Samuel was a two-year starter at defensive end for Nebraska, and was 2-0 in Columbia as a player. He returned to the Cornhuskers as an assistant coach from 1986-1996 and remained perfect on Faurot Field.
The Tigers beat rival Illinois 52-42, but an impressive offense was overshadowed by defensive miscues and an injury to star receiver Jeremy Maclin.
Jeremy Maclin's 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, midway through the second quarter, sparked Missouri's momentum. It began a streak of 21-consecutive points in the second quarter that provided MU the necessary fuel to withstand a late Illinois charge and claim a 52-42 victory Saturday in front of 66,441 at the Edward Jones Dome.
In the first start of his college career, new Tigers' tailback Derrick Washington bolstered Missouri's 52-42 victory over Illinois with two first-half touchdowns and 128 rushing yards. To put those numbers in perspective, Washington had only 184 yards and one touchdown in his entire freshman season.
Several Illinois and Missouri players met with kids for a football camp before Saturday's top-25 matchup in St. Louis.
Not only does Derrick Washington replace Tony Temple, one of the best Tigers running backs, but he also takes over a key position on a team that expects to compete for a national title.
