Columbia, Mo. – The University of Missouri football game in Columbia on Oct. 9th against the Colorado Buffaloes will kick at 6 p.m. (central time) and will be televised live on Fox Sports Net. The selection was announced today by the Big 12 Conference office as part of its weekly television picks for games that weekend.
This will mark the second cable telecast for Mizzou this season, following the season opener against Illinois, which was also on Fox Sports Net. The game will mark the 20th anniversary (just three days to the exact date) of the infamous 5th Down Game, which was played at Faurot Field on Oct. 6th, 1990. It will also mark the last scheduled appearance in Columbia by Colorado, as the Buffaloes are departing the Big 12 for the Pac-10 Conference, starting next year.
A promotional sale is underway for the Colorado game which offers fans a 4-pack of South end zone bleacher seats for just $144 (just $36 apiece, nearly $20 lower than the regular price of $55 for reserved seats for the game).

ESPN.com chose T.J. Moe as one of the helmet sticker recipients of the week. Moe was the hero of Mizzou’s last-minute comeback 27-24 win Saturday night over San Diego State in Columbia, as he caught a short pass, and made a juke move to fake out a would-be tackler, got a great block from fellow WR Jerrell Jackson, and he raced untouched 68 yards for a TD with just :51 seconds left to give Mizzou a fourth quarter victory.
Moe now has 30 receptions for 299 yards and 2 TDs on the year, through 3 games. He currently ranks 2nd in the Big 12 Conference and 3rd in the NCAA in receptions (10.00 per game), and he is also 3rd in the Big 12 and 18th nationally, in receiving yards (99.67 avg.). The 68-yard reception was the longest of his career.

Dallas, Texas – University of Missouri sophomore DE Aldon Smith (Raytown, Mo.) was named Big 12 co-Defensive Player of the Week as announced today by the Big 12 Conference office. Smith was honored for his standout performance in Mizzou’s 23-13 win last Saturday over border rival Illinois which saw MU’s defense pitch a second-half shutout to aid the comeback win. Earlier this week, Smith was also named the National Defensive Player of the Week by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.
Smith was a constant disruptive force against Illinois, as he led Mizzou with a career-high 10 tackles on the day. Included in that total were three tackles for loss, and a pair of quarterback sacks, including one on the third play of the third quarter which forced a crucial three-and-out for the Illinois offense that helped swing the momentum back in MU’s favor.
Smith, the 2009 Big 12 Conference Defensive Newcomer/Freshman of the Year, is the first Tiger defender to win the weekly Big 12 award since LB Sean Weatherspoon won it in 2008 after a big day against Buffalo. This marks the 16th time a Tiger defender has been named Big 12 player of the week since the league formed in 1996, and Smith is the fourth Tiger defensive end to take home the award – joining former greats Justin Smith (once in 2000), Brian Smith (once each in 2005 and 2006) and Stryker Sulak (once in 2008).
