Big 12: Missouri roars back to beat Kansas

Tigers get a late safety and then a field goal to beat Jayhawks, 41-39, in what could have been Mangino's last game as Kansas coach.

November 29, 2009

Missouri 41, Kansas 39: The Tigers tackled Todd Reesing for a safety with 2:39 left and Grant Ressel made a 27-yard field goal as time expired, giving Missouri the victory in another wild Border Showdown at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. Missouri had 553 total yards, but needed a safety and Ressel's fourth field goal of the game to beat its biggest rival and potentially end Coach Mark Mangino's eight-year stint at Kansas with a seven-game losing streak. Danario Alexander caught 15 passes for 233 yards, the third time he has eclipsed 200 yards in four games for Missouri. Reesing threw for a school-record 498 yards and four touchdowns. Kansas receiver Dezmon Briscoe had 14 catches for 242 yards in what may be his final game but lost two fumbles that led directly to Missouri touchdowns.

Texas Tech 20, Baylor 13: Taylor Potts threw a pair of touchdown passes to Lyle Leong less than two minutes apart midway through the third quarter, and the defense made a goal-line stand in the final minutes, giving the Red Raiders the victory at Arlington, Texas. Playing in front of a heavily pro-Tech crowd at Cowboys Stadium, Texas Tech scored its fewest points in a victory since beating Texas A&M, 12-0, in November 2001. It was the third-fewest points in a win in Coach Mike Leach's 10-year tenure.
