COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Missouri coach Barry Odom has finally reached a milestone that eluded him for months.Drew Lock completed 22 of 37 passes for 294 yards and two touchdowns as Missouri defeated Vanderbilt 26-17 Saturday, marking Odoms first Southeastern Conference win.It marks Missouris first SEC victory since Locks starting debut, a 24-10 victory over South Carolina on Oct. 3, 2015.Im happy for our seniors and happy for our team, said Odom, who played linebacker for Missouri from 1996-99. Theyve invested a lot and it hasnt been pretty, but they continue to do everything that Ive asked them to do. Im glad they finally got a little bit of success for working through that.Each team opened with a three-and-out before Damarea Crocketts 6-yard touchdown run gave Missouri (3-7, 1-5) a lead it would never relinquish. Crockett had 20 carries for 154 yards and the touchdown.Hes got a bright future, Odom said of Crockett. We blocked well from the point of attack and Damarea, for a freshman, hes gotten better every week. He works that way in practice.JMon Moore caught eight passes for 138 yards and two touchdowns, including an 82-yard score with 9:50 remaining in the second quarter, and Johnathon Johnson added four catches for 73 yards.Kyle Shurmur was 17 of 29 for 252 yards and two interceptions, one of which Missouri cornerback Aarion Penton returned 19 yards for a touchdown, the second of his career.I knew I had safety help, so I could go ahead and be aggressive on any underneath routes, Penton said in describing the interception. I just used my keys, saw the three-step read, saw that the receivert was running a slant, and I just stepped in front of him and made a play.C.J. Duncan caught five passes for 89 yards and Caleb Scott had three catches for 63 yards.Darius Sims rushed seven times for 86 yards, Khari Blasingame had 14 carries for 64 yards and a touchdown, and Ralph Webb added 11 carries for 34 yards and a touchdown.Missouri gained 481 yards despite a 13-minute differential in time of possession. Its the Tigers highest yardage total in SEC play since Nov. 15, 2014 when they gained 587 yards en route to a 34-27 victory over Texas A&M.Vanderbilt (4-6, 1-5) punted three times in the fourth quarter and was held to -14 yards.Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said his team struggled to get defensive stops for multiple reasons.I think it was a combination of rush and coverage, said Mason, who also serves as defensive coordinator for the Commodores. To be honest, a couple of times they made some good throws versus tight coverage. A couple of times the coverage didnt necessarily finish in the way were supposed to, and the pass rush didnt get home. Thats something Im going to have to get back, look at, and fix quickly because we need to move on.KICKING CONUNDRUMMissouri missed out on at least eight points due to place-kicking issues. Freshman Tucker McCann missed back-to-back extra point attempts in the first half before missing field goal attempts from 55 and 21 yards. Following a 4-yard touchdown pass from Lock to Moore with 8:39 remaining, Odom called on Ben Tesson, who drilled the attempt, giving the Tigers a two-score lead.TAKEAWAYSVanderbilt: The Commodores struggled on third down, converting on just 3 of 14 attempts, while also failing their only fourth down conversion attempt. Missouri converted 10 of 19 third down attempts, including 7 of 11 in the second half.Thats on us as players, Shurmur said of Vanderbilts third down struggles. The coaches had a great game plan, put us in a great positon the whole entire week, and its on us as players to do better on third down especially.Missouri: The Tigers brought the pressure defensively, racking up six sacks and nine tackles for losses. Charles Harris made eight tackles -three of them for losses -- 2 1/2 sacks and a forced fumble, and Marcell Frazier added 1 1/2. Vanderbilt amassed 411 yards, the lowest opponent yardage total Missouris defense has allowed in six games.UP NEXTVanderbilt: The Commodores host Ole Miss (4-5, 1-4 SEC) next Saturday. The Rebels defeated Vanderbilt 27-16 last season in Oxford.Missouri: The Tigers visit Tennessee (7-3, 3-3 SEC) next Saturday. The Volunteers defeated Missouri 19-8 last season in Columbia.

Having two big pieces back is going to be a key for us moving forward for years to come," said Knighthawks head coach Mike Hasen. Adam Shaheen Jersey. Paul Pierce couldnt believe he missed at the end. Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead. http://www.bearsfootballpro.com/Authentic_Eddie-Jackson_Bears_Jersey/. They hope to persuade the other team owners and commissioner Roger Goodell to put pressure on Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to drop the nickname they find offensive. "Given the way the meeting transpired," Ray Halbritter, an Oneida representative and leader of the "Change the Mascot Campaign," said Wednesday, "it became somewhat evident they were defending the continued use of the name. Eddie Jackson Jersey. Coach Mike Munchak says Fokou stretched ligaments in his left knee Oct. 13 against Seattle, which could keep out up to five weeks even though the linebacker didnt need surgery. Tarik Cohen Womens Jersey. Reigning world champion Eve Muirhead of Scotland opened with a 12-2 rout of Winnipegs Jennifer Jones in a battle of teams bound for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. India 455 (Kohli 167, Pujara 119) and 204 (Kohli 81, Broad 4-33) beat England 255 (Stokes 70, Bairstow 53, Ashwin 5-67) and 158 (Cook 54) by 246 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsIndias bowlers required just 38.1 overs to wrap up a 246-run victory on the final day of the second Test in Visakhapatnam, as Englands resolve - fatally weakened by the loss of two wickets late on the fourth evening - was finally cracked with nothing but pride left to play for. The damage had been done in a frantic morning session in which they slumped from 87 for 2 to 142 for 7, and the tail succumbed meekly after lunch, with only Jonny Bairstow showing any real resistance with 34 not out.The margin of victory perhaps overstated the gulf between the sides - the key difference, in every sense, was Indias captain and Man of the Match Virat Kohli, whose aggregate of 248 runs single-handedly accounted for the deficit in Englands balance. But, having fought so hard for so long, especially in the second half of the contest, the speed of their final-day demise was dispiriting for England, with the third Test in Mohali looming large next week.Contrary to all pre-match predictions, the pitch still wasnt spinning dramatically by the final day, but it was skidding through at a hustling pace to match Indias turbo-charged over-rate - they bowled 33.4 in the morning session, including an extraordinary ten in the first half-hour alone as Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin tied England in knots at a rate of knots.The devastating dismissal of Alastair Cook, in the last over of the fourth day, had left England fearing the worst when play resumed, and there was an inevitability about the identity of the first victim of the morning. Ben Ducketts rich strokeplay and inventive attitude will doubtless serve him well as his England career progresses, but in this situation - and particularly against his nemesis, Ashwin - those attributes had roughly the same value as an INR 500 note.Sure enough, having withstood 15 deliveries without opening his account, Duckett dropped to one knee in a bid to hit his way out of a corner, but succeeded only in gloving a sweep onto his thigh pad and into the gloves of the wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha. As he trooped disconsolately off the pitch, Duckett might as well have walked straight onto the England bench. His record against Ashwin alone in this series made grim reading - 40 balls, 15 runs, three wickets. Hell be back, but perhaps not in Mohali next week. Moeen Ali was the nnext to go, his technique against the spinners looking solid right up until the moment Jadeja got one to grip in the rough outside off, and accelerate onto his inside edge for Kohli to complete a lobbed catch at leg gully.dddddddddddd From 75 for 0 after 50 overs, England were now in freefall at 101 for 4 after 74 - the flip-side of their siege mentality being that India were now camping as many as five close catchers under every new batsmans nose.Such close attention didnt bother Ben Stokes at first. He had been so solid in defence in the first innings, and continued his tried-and-trusted methods in a 33-ball stay. But, when India turned to the second new ball - and in the process, gave Jadejas fingers a rest after 25 overs on the trot had left him with the outstanding figures of 34-14-35-2 - the lankier offspin of Jayant Yadav conjured the ball of the match.A faster, flatter offbreak from around the wicket drifted as Stokes played back, then spat past his edge to clip the outside of his off stump. Stokes nodded his appreciation as the bowler hurtled past in celebration, and when Root was nailed by Mohammed Shami nine balls later, the teams might as well have shaken hands there and then.Root had once again been Englands most accomplished technician on the day. But, having survived an early reprieve when Kohli spilled a sharp chance at leg slip, he was pinned on the crease by a zippy nipbacker from Shami and sent on his way for 25 from 107 balls.There was time for one more breakthrough before lunch, as Adil Rashid top-edged an attempted ramp over the slips, to give Shami his second wicket of the innings, and the denouement came in a resigned procession after the resumption.Zafar Ansari completed a match every bit as ignominious as Ducketts when Ashwin skidded a flat offbreak into his off stump for a duck, before Jayant produced a carbon copy of Englands demise in the first innings, trapping Stuart Broad and James Anderson with consecutive lbws. Anderson completed his comeback Test with a king pair, remarkably the first by an England batsman for 110 years.That wasnt the sort of history that Cooks men had targeted at the start of the tour, but with three matches to come and some clear signs of life amid the ruins of todays effort, there will be chances to atone in the coming weeks. But a few correct calls at the toss would be a start. Wholesale Jerseys  Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
