Tuesday's Top Tigers

With the start of the season, Tuesday's Top Tigers makes its return to PowerMizzou.com. Each week from now through the end of football season, we will rank the 11 Tigers who had the best game the previous week. A player's ranking one week has no bearing on his placement on the list the next week. This is our list of the 11 Tigers who had the best days in the 40-34 win over Illinois:

Tuesday's Top Tigers
1 Pig Brown, S Two fumble recoveries, a touchdown, a blocked PAT and a game-icing interception. Yeah, he might belong at the top of the list. NR
2 Jeremy Maclin, WR Maclin had 227 all-purpose yards and scored twice in his home town. He will get the start this weekend with the injury to Danario Alexander. 10
3 Martin Rucker, TE Rucker had already done a full game's work by the end of the first quarter. All in all, ten catches for 86 yards and a nice start to a potential all-American campaign. NR
4 Chase Daniel, QB How bizarre is this? Daniel threw for 359 yards and three touchdowns without an interception…and can be a whole lot better. 3
5 Sean Weatherspoon, LB Spoon led the Tigers with 8.5 total tackles (six solos and five assists). He had two tackles for a loss, a pass breakup and a forced fumble and was everything we've been saying he would be for six months. 7
6 Brock Christopher, LB Christopher was third on the team with 5.5 total tackles, including half a sack. His hurry of Eddie McGee forced a fourth quarter interception. NR
7 Connell Davis, LB Davis was the special teams player of the week after making 2.5 tackles and recovering a fumble. He was all over the field on Illini kickoff returns. NR
8 William Moore, S Moore made an incredibly athletic interception that could very well have iced things for the Tigers and also had eight tackles, second on the team. NR
9 Chase Coffman, TE Seven catches for 43 yards and a touchdown and he was only the second best player at his position on his own team. Welcome to life as a Tiger tight end. NR
10 Hardy Ricks, CB Ricks was solid in run support, making five total tackles on the game. He was not spectacular in coverage, but also did not get beat much at all. 2
11 Andrew Gachkar, LB Gachkar didn't play a down on defense, but like Davis was very strong on special teams coverage. His forced fumble led directly to a field goal right before the break. NR
