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 48-17 win over Kentucky:

Tuesday's Top Tigers
1 Dorial Green-Beckham Green-Beckham had his best game since arriving at Missouri, and for the first time in his career, completely took over 60-minutes of game time. The advantage he had on jump balls in the endzone was unfair, and DGB caught everything that was thrown to him. He showed muscle, not just finesse, and this could be a turning point in his career.NR
2 Maty Mauk, QB Mauk had the best game of his young career, completing 60-percent of passes for 203 yards and five touchdowns. He was just off on a few deep balls that could have dramatically buffered his passing numbers, but this was the most complete game he's played. Most importantly, he didn't throw an interception. Didn't come close, in fact. 2
3 Kony Ealy, DE At the beginning of the season, teams slanted protection toward Ealy and Michael Sam was rewarded. Now it's going the other way, and Ealy is putting together a string of dominating performances. He had six tackles and three sacks. He took over the defensive line from start to finish. 3
4 Markus Golden, DE Golden continues to improve this season, and he had five tackles and the first sack of the game which set the tone for the rest of the defensive line. 9
5 Henry Josey, TB His 86-yard TD came in garbage time and also made his rushing numbers look fantastic, but even before then Josey had two touchdowns, one receiving, to finish the day with three scores. Now Josey is closing in on 1,000 yards, which after his injury two years ago is incredible. 7
6 Levi Copelin, WR Copelin gets on the list here because of his blocked punt which set up Missouri's second touchdown of the day and turned the momentum from a close game to a route. NR
7 Andrew Wilson, LB Wilson was solid all day with ten tackles, and when the defense surrendered its lone long pass play of the afternoon, he made up for it by running 40-yards downfield and forcing a fumble to keep Missouri's turnover streak alive. 8
8 Matt Hoch and Lucas Vincent, DT Missouri's starting tackles had their best game as a duo, combining for eight tackles, three tackles for loss and a sack. 6
9 Shane Ray, DE Ray had a sack for the fifth-straight game and added four tackles. He's the type of player who looks like he should be getting credit for more hurries than he is. 11
10 Duron Singleton, S Singleton has been playing more and more, but he got the bulk of snaps at the nickelback spot because of an early injury to Ian Simon. Singleton didn't disappoint, finishing with seven tackles, two for loss. NR
11 Donovan Bonner, LB Bonner finished with four tackles, a sack and a quarterback hurry and is quietly putting together a solid year. NR
