Cyclones hold at 6 wins following loss to Mizzou

Posted:

COLUMBIA, MISSOURI (AP) -- Danario Alexander reached double digits in receptions for the third straight game and Jerrell Jackson had a career day, helping Missouri end a three-game home losing streak in a 34-24 victory over Iowa State on Saturday.

Alexander had 11 catches for 173 yards and a 63-yard score, breaking records for single-season and career yardage set by Jeremy Maclin last season. In his last three games, Alexander has 34 catches for 578 yards and five touchdowns. On Saturday, Jackson had eight receptions for 142 yards and a 70-yard score.

Both of the big plays came in the third quarter for Missouri (7-4, 3-4 Big 12). Iowa State (6-6, 3-5) led 17-10 at halftime.

Blaine Gabbert was 23 for 32 for 337 yards and two touchdowns and had 51 yards on 12 carries, helping fill the void after Derrick Washington sustained a concussion in the second quarter.
