Missouri played well, and looked like a top-25 team doing it. But Oklahoma is Oklahoma for a reason. The Sooners rebounded from a rough start and beat the Tigers, 38-28.
Missouri's 14-3 spurt early made it interesting, but Oklahoma is too good. Are they the best team in the Big 12? It looks like it through four weeks. Are they a national title contender? LSU and Alabama might say no.
What's not debatable is the Sooners are 3-0 after racking up a 38th consecutive home win over the Tigers and still on track for a national title game appearance.
Very characteristic performances from all the usual suspects.
Oklahoma? On to the next one.
Ball State comes to Owen Field next week, and Missouri falls to 2-2 with the loss. James Franklin notched a career-high 95 yards and two touchdowns.
The Tigers are off next week before traveling to Kansas State on Oct. 8.
