Alexander gets single-season record
COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Danario Alexander broke Missouri's single-season record for yards receiving in the first quarter of Saturday's game against Iowa State.
Alexander needed 23 yards to surpass the mark of 1,260 yards set last year by Jeremy Maclin, who left for the NFL after his sophomore season. Alexander had four receptions for 37 yards in the first quarter, helping Missouri take a 10-7 lead in the home finale.
Alexander entered the game 21 receptions and two touchdowns shy of two more Maclin records, both also set last season.
