Missouri claims the title of the 2008 Alamo Bowl

Missouri clenched a win over Northwestern in overtime  for the 2008 Alamo Bowl last night.  This was only the second Alamo Bowl in History that overtime has needed to be used and delivered a 30-23 win for the Tigers.  The overtime was a result of Missouri’s kicker Jeff Wolfert missing the game-winning field goal as time elapsed in the fourth quarter.  Although, before than important kick was missed Wolfert was a hero for kicking a 37-yarder to tie the game with 2:49 remaining in the 4th.  Missouri finally gripped the win after Jeremy Maclin, an All-American, caught a 7-yard pass from Chase Daniels to deliver an ultimate 30-23 victory.
