Game's back on in Manhattan
By David Ubben
Kansas State and UCF are finally back playing again after a delay of over an hour.
Meanwhile, Missouri's off to a nice start in avoiding last week's close call against this week's non-BCS opponent. The Tigers' Andrew Gachkar forced a fumble on the opening kick and cornerback Carl Gettis returned the ball for a touchdown to put the Tigers up 7-0 eight seconds into the game.
Missouri is also playing without three starters. Receiver Jerrell Jackson is out with a hip injury, defensive end Aldon Smith is shelved after breaking his fibula and safety Jasper Simmons is still out after suffering a torn meniscus against Illinois. Jackson was already playing with a broken bone in his wrist, catching balls with a cast.
