Mizzou upsets #1 Oklahoma 36-27

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Jerrell Jackson spun free from a knot of

tacklers on a 38-yard reception for the go-ahead score, sparking a

16-point fourth quarter that helped No. 18 Missouri upend the top

team in the BCS standings with a 36-27 victory over error-prone

Oklahoma on Saturday night.

The third-ranked Sooners (6-1, 2-1 Big 12) committed three

costly turnovers, out of character considering they had only five

giveaways the first six games. Two of the turnovers led to 10

points and the other squelched a drive deep in Missouri territory,

and the Sooners also missed a chip-shot field goal.

An 86-yard scoring return Gahn McGaffie on the opening kickoff

added to that edge as the Tigers (7-0, 3-0) ended a seven-game

losing streak in a lopsided series dating to 1998, and beat the

Sooners for only the second time in the last 21 meetings overall.
