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.
