COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Jeremy Maclin scored three touchdowns and totaled 278 all-purpose yards, helping No. 13 Missouri shake off a slow start in its home finale and whip Kansas State 41-24 Saturday night to grab first place in the Big 12 North.
Missouri (8-2, 4-2 Big 12) took control with 17 points in the
final 5:46 of the half, including a pair of touchdown passes from
Chase Daniel to Maclin. Maclin had eight receptions for 118 yards
and two TDs, four carries for 84 yards and a third TD on a 56-yard
jaunt on a direct snap.
Kansas State (4-6, 1-5) has lost five of six under lame-duck
coach Ron Prince, the latest setback coming only three days after
Prince was fired effective at the end of the season.
