Oklahoma Vs. Missouri: Gahn McGaffie Scores On Opening Kickoff Return

Missouri certainly wanted to start their showdown against Oklahoma well. A kickoff return for a touchdown followed by a three and out on defense should have been a good way to do that.

Freshman Gahn McGaffie fielded a bouncing kick, cut back, and outran every Sooner on the field on an 86-yard kick return touchdown.

It's the second straight week that a primetime game on ABC has been started by a home team returning the kickoff for a touchdown. Wisconsin did the same to Ohio State last week.

The Tigers were set to repeat more of Wisconsin's build-an-early-lead blueprint with a three and out, too, but a muffed punt gave the Sooners the ball back in Missouri territory. Landry Jones will have a chance to atone for a bad incompletion and a sack on Oklahoma's first drive.
