Tuesday's Top Tigers


Tuesday's Top Tigers makes its return to PowerMizzou.com. A player's ranking one week has no bearing on his placement on the list the next week. Here is our take on the Tigers who had the best performances in the 52-17 win over Iowa State on Saturday:

Tuesday's Top Tigers
1 The Offensive Line Why single out one? The Tigers were dominant up front, often seeing the entire line two or three yards past the line of scrimmage on running plays.NR
2 Henry Josey, TB This is becoming a habit. Josey put up another 129 yards and a touchdown and continues to lead the Big 12 in rushing. 1
3 E.J. Gaines, CB Gaines had nine tackles and now ranks third on the team with 35. He broke up his team-leading fourth pass and forced a fumble. 2
4 Luke Lambert, LB Lambert had seven tackles, a pass breakup, a TFL and two fumble recoveries in another standout day. 3
5 James Franklin, QB Franklin had a very productive day with 383 total yards and five touchdowns total. Without two interceptions, he would easily have led the list. NR
6 Michael Egnew, TE Egnew topped 100 yards for the first time, including a 39-yard TD and a 30-yarder on which he carried four players and brought back memories of Martin Rucker. 9
7 Kendial Lawrence, TB Lawrence looks all the way back after 16 carries for 78 yards and a score. A good compliment to Josey in the ground game. NR
8 Michael Sam, DE Sam had 1.5 sacks and a pass breakup on a productive day for the defensive line. NR
9 Sheldon Richardson, DT Richardson continued his ascent this season with four tackles, 1.5 for a loss, and a QB hurry on the day. He'll get his first start this week. 7
10 Brad Madison, DE Madison had his best day in a while, getting a sack and an interception that he tipped to himself and nearly returned for a TD. NR
1l L'Damian Washington, WR Washington had 70 yards on just two catches and would have been higher on the list had he held on to a couple of second-half passes that would have given him his first 100-yard day as a Tiger. NR
