The Missouri Tigers are starting to hit their rhythm in Monday’s Liberty Bowl, with QB Drew Lock already tossing two touchdown passes.
The second was to TE Kendall Blanton, who is getting some extended action with starter Albert Okwuegbunam out with an injury, and it was a great catch.
As you can see below, an Oklahoma State defender is all over the senior tight end, but he makes a one-handed grab in the end zone for the score:

That was only Blanton’s second touchdown catch of the year, but it was a big one, giving the Tigers a 16-14 lead in the second quarter.
Meanwhile, Drew Lock only needs two more touchdown passes to reach 100 for his career and only three more to tie Chase Daniel for the most in Mizzou history.
