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 27-24 loss to South Carolina:

Tuesday's Top Tigers
1 Marcus Murphy, TB There is no question Murphy was Mizzou's best player. He had 53 rushing yards, scored two touchdowns, took every snap in overtime with the other two tailbacks hurt and came within an eyelash of returning a kickoff for a TD.NR
2 Michael Sam, DE Sam continued his incredible senior season with a sack and three tackles for loss, including one that appeared it might seal a Missouri win in OT. 3
3 Markus Golden, DE Golden had eight tackles and a fumble recovery as the Tiger defense held the SEC's leading rusher to 51 yards and two turnovers. NR
4 Henry Josey, TB Josey ran for 79 yards in regulation before leaving with a concussion. There was also at least one play we saw where he blocked Jadeveon Clowney one on one. 2
5 Justin Britt, LT Lined up across from Clowney all day, Britt held his own. The all-American candidate had five tackles, but just one behind the line of scrimmage, one QB hurry and no sacks. 4
6 Matt Hoch, DT Hoch had only two tackles, but he forced a critical fumble and clogged the middle, playing a big part in limiting Davis to his worst day of the season. NR
7 Randy Ponder, CB Playing as Mizzou's lead cornerback, Ponder makes the list largely for one play, a breakup at the goal line in overtime that put South Carolina in fourth and 15. Overall he had five tackles as well. NR
8 Marcus Lucas, WR Lucas has been Mizzou's possession receiver most of the year, but had 89 yards on three catches against the Gamecocks. NR
9 L'Damian Washington, WR He had only one catch, but it was a 96-yard touchdown that seemed for most of the night it would become the signature play of Missouri's dream season. 10
10 Christian Brinser, P Brinser's average wasn't great, but that was in large part due to punting on short fields. He dropped three inside the 20-yard line in addition to a 54-yarder in the first half. NR
11 John Gibson, CB The redshirt freshman grabbed the first interception of his career, earning the final spot on our list. NR
