Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said sophomore receiver Dorial Green-Beckham suffered a bruised hand.
It was x-rayed right away, Pinkel said. Hes fine.
Other than that, Pinkel said, the Tigers came away from the game fairly healthy.
• Redshirt freshman quarterback Maty Mauk made a brief appearance at the beginning of the second quarter with Missouri leading 20-14. He handed the ball off for a 2-yard loss and hit Bud Sasser for an 11-yard game before he was pulled on third and 1 for starter James Franklin.
We wanted him to play earlier, but the way it was going we wanted to get the momentum back, Pinkel said. Then in the third-down situation, we just decided wed go with the experienced player. As it turns out, he got to play a lot in the second half, anyway.
Mauk finished the game two of three for 18 yards.
• True freshmen Aarion Penton, a cornerback, and Josh Augusta, a defensive tackle, participated in their first collegiate game action. Augusta was particularly disruptive, racking up three tackles two for loss and a sack.
• Staley graduate Morgan Steward, a redshirt freshman running back, scored his first career touchdown on a 1-yard plunge in the fourth quarter.
• Senior receiver Jaleel Clark finished with a team-high five catches for 51 yards. He only had one catch last season.
• Senior cornerback E.J. Gaines had two interceptions Saturday, one more than he had all of last season. Junior safety Braylon Webb also got the first interception of his collegiate career.
