MU's superior rushing game dominated the pigs. Great job, Tony the Tiger.

I wasn't always a fan, but he has really matured as a player. Job well done.

DALLAS _ Missouri, behind Tony Temple's record-setting day, dominated No. 25 Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl for a 38-7 victory.Temple, the former Rockhurst High star playing perhaps his final game as a Missouri Tiger, rolled up a season-high and Cotton Bowl-record 281 yards on 24 carries. He also rushed for a Cotton Bowl-record four touchdowns.A year ago, Temple ran for 194 yards against Oregon State in the Sun Bowl. That included a four-yard loss on his last carry, which cost him the Sun Bowl record.The previous Cotton Bowl rushing record was 265 yards, set by Rice’s Dicky Maegle against Alabama in 1954. var comment_headline='Tony the Tiger scores four TDs, leads Mizzou to 38-7 victory'.replace(/ /g, '%20');

I wonder if this game affects McFadden's draft status at all.

When will they find out if Temple gets another year of eligibility?

Temple steps up and goes into a higher gear in big games. He blew up the Sun Bowl last year and had the all-time record until the last carry where he lost a few yards.
