Missouri snaps three-game home losing streak with win over Iowa State

Associated Press

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Danario Alexander reached double digits in receptions for the third straight game and Jerrell Jackson had a career day, helping Missouri end a three-game home losing streak in a 34-24 victory over Iowa State on Saturday.

Alexander had 11 catches for 173 yards and a 63-yard score, breaking records for single-season and career yardage set by Jeremy Maclin last season. In his last three games, Alexander has 34 catches for 578 yards and five touchdowns. On Saturday, Jackson had eight receptions for 142 yards and a 70-yard score.

Both of the big plays came in the third quarter for Missouri (7-4, 3-4 Big 12), which had been plagued by poor second halves in conference play before pulling away at Kansas State last week. Iowa State (6-6, 3-5) led 17-10 at halftime after Austen Arnaud's 38-yard pass to Darius Darks with 26 seconds left.

Jackson outran the coverage on his catch, which tied it at 17-17 early in the second half. Alexander split defenders who appeared to have an angle on him about four minutes later.

Blaine Gabbert was 23 for 32 for 337 yards and two touchdowns and had 51 yards on 12 carries, helping fill the void after Derrick Washington sustained a concussion in the second quarter. De'Vion Moore's 1-yard run with 4 minutes 43 seconds to go gave Missouri a 10-point cushion.

Iowa State scored on a pair of trick plays, a 10-yard option pass by wide receiver Alexander Robinson to Jake Williams in the first quarter and a 12-yard run by 338-pound tackle Scott Haughton off a lateral pass from Arnaud in the third quarter to make it 24-24.

The Cyclones allowed 539 yards, one week after clamping down on Colorado for a 17-10 victory that made them bowl-eligible for the first time since 2005.

Missouri was 17-2 at home from 2006-08, and the three-game losing streak was the school's first since 2004. The Tigers haven't dropped more than three in a row at home since 1993-94 when they lost seven straight.

Darks had a season-best 107 yards on nine catches for Iowa State, but was held to 22 yards on five receptions in the second half.
