The Mizzou Football team held its second scrimmage of fall camp on Saturday and the offense came away with the 11-9 victory.

Mizzou starting running back Russell Hansbrough also had a big day, rushing for 59 yards and two touchdowns. Freshman tailback Ish Witter added two scores on the ground and ran for 31 yards.

Thomas Richard (three catches for 65 yards and a touchdown) and Bud Sasser (three catches for 40 yards) led the way for Tigers receivers on the day.

While the offense claimed victory, there were plenty of standout performances on the defensive end.

Defensive backs Aarion Penton and Raymond Wingo each came away with an interception, while linebacker Michael Scherer had three tackles for loss and lineman Justin Grava had two sacks.

Head coach Gary Pinkel said he was pleased with the Tigers’ play on Saturday.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do, we’re doing a lot of good things, but to get as efficient and consistent as we can, we’ve got a lot of work to do,” Pinkel said.

Mizzou will kick off the season on August 30 at 2:30 p.m. versus South Dakota State on ESPNU.
