Tuesday's Top Tigers


Tuesday's Top Tigers makes its return to PowerMizzou.com. A player's ranking one week has no bearing on his placement on the list the next week. Here is our take on the Tigers who had the best performances in the 36-17 victory over Florida:

Tuesday's Top Tigers
1 Maty Mauk, QB He wasn't perfect, which is actually good news. Mauk could have had multiple interceptions, but still threw for more yardage against the Gators than any QB in three years and led the offense to 500 yards10
2 Henry Josey, RB Josey had 136 yards and has found the end zone in all seven games. And his biggest play may have been a tackle on a potential pick six by Florida NR
3 Michael Sam, DE Three sacks for the third time this year. Florida's right tackle may have considered quitting football after Sam wore him out for three-and-a-half hours. 5
4 Justin Britt, LT The line was very good again on Saturday. But Britt makes our list for this two-pancake sequence as much as anything. NR
5 Evan Boehm, C Time to start giving the leader of the Tigers' offensive line his due. Boehm is having an all-SEC sophomore season. NR
6 Andrew Baggett, K Baggett has given Mizzou fans reasons to be skeptical this season, but he hit a school-record five field goals and all three extra points against the Gators. NR
7 Kony Ealy, DE Ealy turned in his best game of the season with four tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and three quarterback hurries. He was all over the field against Florida. NR
8 Shane Ray, DE Four tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and a hurry...and that's good for third at his own position. NR
9 Aarion Penton, CB Penton had three tackles and a pick and made it hard to notice that E.J. Gaines didn't play. 8
10 L'Damian Washington, WR He had three catches for 84 yards, including 41 on a huge first play from scrimmage. Washington has become this team's leader and spokesman in an amazing senior season. 1
11 Jimmie Hunt, WR We put Hunt here fully realizing there are at least four or five guys who won't make the list who could/should. But he had three catches for 69 yards, including perhaps the biggest offensive play of the day, a 52-yard catch to answer Florida's kickoff return for a TD that made it a one-score game. NR
