Last-second field goal gives Tigers win over KU, 41-39

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri got a late safety and Grant Ressel hit a 27-yard field goal as time expired, giving the Tigers a 41-39 win over Kansas on Saturday in another wild Border Showdown at Arrowhead Stadium.

These rivals put on a show in last year and somehow topped it, trading big plays, scores and momentum seemingly with every snap.

Missouri (8-4, 4-4) had 553 total yards, but needed a safety with 2:39 left and Ressel's fourth field goal of the game to beat its biggest rival and potentially end coach Mark Mangino's 8-year stint at Kansas (5-7, 1-7).

Danario Alexander caught 15 passes for 233 yards, the third time he's eclipsed 200 yards in four games, and Derrick Washington ran for 111 yards and two scores for the Tigers.
