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.
