By The Numbers: Arizona State
After each game, PowerMizzou.com will take a look at the notable numbers from the match-up and looking forward. We continue with the numbers remaining after Missouri's 24-20 win over Arizona State.
1: Corbin Berkstresser received the first start of his career on Saturday. It's the first time since 2001 that an injury forced a new quarterback to start during the middle of a season for Missouri.
2: Missouri's average turnover margin, in the postive, per game. The Tigers are tied for sixth nationally at that number. Missouri has forced at least two turnovers in every game this year.
3: Field goals opponents have attempted against the Tigers this season. They've made all three.
4: Missouri's conference rank in rush defense and total defense. Opponents are averaging 94.67 rushing yards per game and 2.68 yards-per-rush.
5: Sacks Missouri's make-shift offensive line has surrendered through three games. A year ago, Missouri gave up 18 sacks in 13 games.
6: Sacks by South Carolina's defense in its 49-6 win over East Carolina on Saturday.
7: Missouri's conference rank in scoring offense, tied with Tennessee at 35.3 points per game. That, however, is mainly because of a 62-point opening game. Missouri has yet to break 25 points since.
8: Receptions by T.J. Moe against Arizona State, for 88 yards. It was his highest total since he got 15 passes in the 2010 Insight Bowl. It's Missouri's highest total by one player since Michael Egnew caught 12 passes against Baylor last November.
9: Missouri's conference rank in passing offense at 217.3 yards per game. It's only 15 yards per game fewer than last year's total.
10: Turnovers forced by Missouri through three games. A year ago, Missouri forced 22 all season.
11: Missouri's conference rank in rushing offense at 163 yards per game. It's 80 yards off of last year's average when the Tigers led the Big 12 in rushing.
12: Missouri's conference rank in total offense at 380.3 yards per game. It's 95 yards off of last year's average.
28: Years between non-conference home sellouts at Memorial Stadium. Before Saturday, the last sellout was in 1984 against Notre Dame.
50: Carries by Missouri's quarterbacks. It's the exact same number of carries as Missouri's top two running backs.
100: Missouri's national rank in first downs per game. A year ago, Missouri ranked 13th.
