Tiger grade card vs Oklahoma

Quarterback

You try being the entire passing game AND the entire running game against a defense like Oklahoma's. Chase Daniel's first interception was a tipped ball and the last two were the product of the only player capable of making enough plays to win the game trying to do too much. But Daniel showed heart and guts and was the only offensive reason Missouri had a prayer in the game. Fault whoever you want for this loss, but don't fault Chase Daniel.

Final Grade: B

Tailbacks

Seven carries, one yard and a fumble. The reason doesn't matter. That isn't going to beat anybody in this league.

Final Grade: F

Defensive Line

We will not make excuses for the numbers this week. Missouri gave up 231 rushing yards, and is now averaging 224 per game over three weeks. They got almost no pressure on Paul Thompson. Lorenzo Williams was very good. Stryker Sulak and Xzavie Jackson both had terrible, terrible penalties.

Final Grade: D
