Lee and Paul hook up again

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- What was it I said about Missouri having this one in hand if they could stay away from critical mistakes?

Blaine Gabbert's first interception of the season sparked another Nebraska touchdown two plays later, which has boosted the Cornhuskers into a 13-12 lead with 12:59 left.

Gabbert's pass was picked off by Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who had been quiet for most of the game. Gabbert's pick -- his first in 164 passes -- gave the Cornhuskers a short field.

Two plays later, Zac Lee rifled a 12-yard touchdown pass to Niles Paul -- his second TD toss in 57 seconds -- that put Nebraska ahead for the first time in the game.

The Tigers now are going to have to win this game with their offense. They've played conservatively and it will be interesting to see if they can get any continuity back.
