01/02/15 - When Missouri played its best this season, the Tigers stopped the run or ran well themselves. Minnesota found out what happens when the Tigers are successful at both. Marcus Murphy ran for 159 yards, Russell Hansbrough added 114 yards and a touchdown and No. 16 Missouri beat Minnesota (No. 25 CFP) 33-17 on Thursday in the Citrus Bowl. "We took advantage of some critical turnovers. It's 23 (wins) -- the best back-to-back seasons in Missouri history," Tigers coach Gary Pinkel said. "You're always judged when you have the most adversity and how you respond. And we did."
Missouri (11-3) also got a big day out of its defense, which held one of the nation's top rushing offenses to 106 yards on its way to winning its third straight bowl game and reaching 11 victories for the fourth time in school history. Minnesota entered the game averaging nearly 225 yards on the ground. The Tigers forced three turnovers, led by game MVP Markus Golden, who finished with 10 tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery. It helped Missouri's offense settle in after from some early miscues. "It's a blessing to be a part of this team. Just to be out here playing," Golden said. "One of the best days of my life." - AP Sports
