Mizzou's WRs did something Saturday that hadn't been done since 2008
On Sept. 13, 2008, against Nevada, Mizzou WRs Jeremy Maclin and Tommy Saunders and TE Chase Coffman all recorded at least 100 receiving yards.
Saunders finished with exactly 100, Coffman had 127 and Maclin led the way with 172 yards in a 69-17 victory.
Since then, the Tigers haven’t even managed to have two 100-yard receivers in the same game — until Saturday.
In a 26-11 loss at West Virginia, the Tigers got 100-yard games from graduate transfer Chris Black and redshirt junior J’Mon Moore:
Mizzou's J'Mon Moore with 8 catches for 104 yards. Chris Black wih 6/102. First time two w/ 100+ since 2008 (Maclin, Coffman, Saunders).

Though the offense made costly mistakes in the red zone in Barry Odom’s first game as head coach, QB Drew Lock clearly has some chemistry with both Black and Moore.
That trio will need to step up in a big way if the Tigers are going to rebound from a tough Week 1 loss.
