No. 9 Missouri capped a breakthrough season under fourth-year coach Eli Drinkwitz on Friday by edging No. 7 Ohio State 14-3 in the Cotton Bowl to finish 11-2. The Buckeyes held Mizzou scoreless for the first three quarters before Cody Schrader broke through for a 7-yard touchdown run on the opening play of the fourth quarter.

The Tigers added some insurance with 5:12 remaining when Brady Cook capped a 13-play, 91-yard drive by finding Luther Burden for a 7-yard touchdown pass. Missouri’s defense took care of the rest as the Tigers notched their second-ever win over Ohio State and first since 1976.

Freshman quarterback Lincoln Kienholz was forced into action during the second quarter for Ohio State after Devin Brown suffered what coach Ryan Day said was a high ankle sprain in his first career start. With star receiver and Heisman Trophy finalist Marvin Harrison Jr. also opting out, the Buckeyes simply lacked their customary offensive punch. 

Schrader finished with 128 yards rushing, surpassing 1,600 yards for the year and passing Tyler Badie for Missouri’s single-season rushing record. Cook added 128 yards passing and 66 rushing as he rallied from a slow start for six straight completions during a critical juncture in the second half.

  • Missouri is now 3-0 in the Cotton Bowl during the 21st century after beating Arkansas on Jan. 1, 2008 and Oklahoma State on Jan. 3, 2014
  • Until this year, the Tigers hadn’t won more than eight games in a season since 2014
  • Ohio State finished with 203 total yards. Its previous season-low was 328 yards.
