Missouri RB Dawson Downing runs for 54-yard TD against Ole Miss
Missouri junior running back Dawson Downing didn’t score a touchdown in any of his first 23 college football games. But he has one now.
Downing found a small hole to the right side of the offensive line on a play in the third quarter. It was just big enough to squeeze through to spring him for a big gain. The Ole Miss defenders did eventually catch him, but a quick reach for the end zone prior to hitting the ground gave Downing his first career touchdown.
