Border War 2011 Final Score: Missouri Bids Kansas Adieu

The Missouri Tigers are leaving the Big 12, and taking bragging rights with them until the Kansas Jayhawks decide they'd like another shot. The last scheduled game in the Border War series, the nation's second-longest running rivalry, finished with a 24-10 Mizzou victory.

KU made a go of it, running out to a 10-0 advantage that entertained visions of a blue-decked Turner Gill on the sidelines in 2012. 

Despite three James Franklin interceptions, the Tigers used a committee rushing attack -- four players exceeded 24 yards, but only Kendial Lawrence topped 50 -- to overrun Kansas' squishy ground defense. 

The Tigers are in line for a bowl bid, perhaps the worst one the Big 12 can convince its affiliated exhibitions to extend, while Kansas puts together its second straight mortifying campaign on Gill's watch. If you said this was Gill's last game against Missouri, nobody would laugh at you.

Border War 2011 Score: Missouri Keeping Kansas In Game With Turnovers

Despite having outgained Kansas by more than 150 yards at the end of the fourth quarter, Missouri is only leading by seven points, 17-10. In fact, Kansas is still flirting with the 100-yard mark in total offense for the game.

But the Tigers have helped keep the Jayhawks in the game by turning the ball over five times via three James Franklin interceptions and a pair of fumbles. Overall, Franklin is 11-of-18 passing for 111 yards and a touchdown against the three picks. The touchdown came on a 25-yard pass to Wes Kemp following a Kendial Lawrence two-yard touchdown run, the two scores accounting for 14 third-quarter points to give Missouri the lead.

For Kansas, Jordan Webb is 7-of-15 for 40 yards and a pick. The Jayhawks still have not scored since a pick-six early in the second quarter.

Missouri Vs. Kansas Score: Border War More Like Skirmish This Year

Remember when Missouri and Kansas used to play in high-scoring affairs, or at least decent-scoring affairs, like a 36-28 showdown in 2007, or a 40-37 clash in 2008, or a 41-39 shootout in 2009? Yeah, that's probably not going to happen this year. Kansas leads the game 10-0 early.

We're early in the second quarter, sure, but the two teams combined have yet to break the 200-yard mark. The teams have already thrown four interceptions -- three of those belonging to James Franklin, who has a quarterback rating of 11.6 -- and there's been a single offensive play of more than 20 yards so far. Kansas' Rell Lewis has caught one pass -- for minus-7 yards.

The scores for Kansas are one of those interceptions -- returned 57 yards by Bradley McDougald and a 33-yard field goal.
