The Jayhawks went up top early in the game with a 14-3 lead and led all of the first half, finishing the half at 21-13.
But after the half Missouri fired back finishing the third quarter leading 33-28. To open the fourth Missouri got a field goal to make it 36-28. After that KU stormed down the field and hit a field goal as well but Missouri star All-American linebacker Sean Weatherspoon was called for unnecessary roughness on the play and on the next play KU scored and got the two pointer to tie it 36-36. KU forced Missouri to punt and then drove for a field goal to make the game 39-36. Missouri got the ball with 3:36 left but on a 3rd and one Missouri running back was tripped by Missouri QB Blaine Gabbert as he was handing it off and Missouri was forced to punt. They downed the punt at the 1 yard and KU had only 2:55 to run off the clock but opted to try a deep pass on first down. Then surprisingly throw on second down as well which forced them to pass on 3rd. On 3rd down Kansas QB Todd Reesing was sacked in the end zone for a safety and had to kick the ball to Missouri up by one. On the kick Missouri returned it to the 50 yard line and after a 24 yard run by Missouri halfback Derick Washington it set up a last second field goal by Missouri's Kicker Grant Russel who leads the league in kicking percentage only missing one field goal all season. He hit the field goal with no time remaining to give Missouri the win 41-39.
Missouri's receiver Demarrio Alexander won college football player of the week with 14 catches for 244 yards and 2 TD's. Also Kansas receiver Desmond Briscoe had a good game with 13 catches 272 yards 2 TD's but also 2 fumbles that lead to Missouri TD's. So Missouri denies Kansas a bowl game and takes home the bragging rights in a typical Border showdown shootout.

They stated the season with Bryon Leftwich but after 4 games benched him and went with Josh Johnson but he also was benched in week 7, then finally they go to their rookie QB Josh Freeman this week and what do you know...they finally win 38-28 vs. Green Bay after 7 strait losses this season.
In the battle of the Bay's (Tampa Bay and Green Bay) Freeman finally lit the Buccaneers up with 3 passing TD's and 205 yards which gives Buccaneer fans a hope that the season might not be as glum as it looked as their 1st round draft pick gives Tampa a win. Aaron Rogers once again had a good game but once again it comes up short as they will go to 500. on the season.
So again this week a team that has not won a game gets their first win. The first was the Lions beating the Redskins, then the Browns beating the Bills, then the Chiefs beating the Redskins (notice yet that the Redskins helped a lot of teams get their first win), then the Titans beating the Jaguars and now the Buccaneers beating the Packers.
I wonder if now that every team has a win if the teams without a loss will start losing, you do know that the Colts play the Patriots this week?

2. Peyton Manning
3. Ben Roethlisberger
4. Philip Rivers
5. Tom Brady
It was the first win over a top-10 opponent for the Wildcats (6-4, 3-3 Big Ten) since knocking off then-No. 6 Ohio State 33-27 in overtime in 2004.
Iowa lost quarterback Ricky Stanzi to an apparent ankle injury early in the second quarter. Freshman James Vandenberg was just 9 of 27 for 82 yards filling, and couldn't lead the Hawkeyes (9-1, 5-1 Big Ten) to any points after Stanzi left the game.
Northwestern scored twice off turnovers in the second quarter. Thomas recovered a fumble in the end zone after the hit that knocked Stanzi out of the game, and Drake Dunsmore caught a 4-yard touchdown pass from Persa after another turnover.
Brandon Wegher had 63 yards rushing for Iowa, whose national title hopes are all but over. The Hawkeyes can still win at least a share of the Big Ten title with victories over Ohio State and Minnesota in their final two games.
