Tuesday's Top Tigers

Tuesday's Top Tigers makes its return to PowerMizzou.com. A player's ranking one week has no bearing on his placement on the list the next week. This is our list of the 11 Tigers who had, in our opinion, the best performances in the 23-13 win over Illinois:

Tuesday's Top Tigers
1 Carl Gettis, CB In three minutes, Gettis had a highlight reel pick, downed a punt inside the one and added a 15-yard punt return. Game of his career so far. 2
2 T.J. Moe, WR In his first start, Moe was one catch away from tying the single-game Tiger reception record. And most of them weren't easy catches. 1
3 Aldon Smith, DE Smith did a little bit of everything on Saturday, picking up two sacks and spending most of the second half spying Nathan Scheelhaase, keeping the Illini QB to five rushing yards after the break. 10
4 Blaine Gabbert, QB Gabbert wasn't perfect, but he was pretty good. He threw for 281 yards and two scores and never came close to throwing an interception, while his counterpart turned it over four times. 3
5 Michael Egnew, TE Egnew more than doubled his career reception total with ten grabs. And, like Moe, a few of them were really tough catches. 4
6 De'Vion Moore, TB With the starter banged up and ineffective, Moore toted it 16 times for 78 yards, most in the second half when the Tiger offense found its footing. NR
7 Brad Madison, DE Madison recovered a fumble and had a bone-crushing hit on Scheelhaase that set the second half tone. He also did a fine job snapping the ball. NR
8 Michael Sam, DE Though he didn't have a sack, Sam spent plenty of time in the backfield. His production allowed Missouri to go with the four defensive end look that was so effective. NR
9 Dave Steckel, DC Speaking of that look, the defensive coordinator deserves credit for using it, and for his use of Smith. The Tiger defense kept the offense in the game until halftime and then threw a shutout after the break. NR
10 Jasper Simmons, S Simmons had an interception and kept the Illini from hitting any big pass plays, while playing the majority of the game on a torn meniscus. NR
11 Andrew Gachkar, CB Gachkar may not have been spectacular, but he was in the middle of plenty of action, including batting down a pass on third down that helped the Tigers get the ball back and ice the game. NR
