Missouri’s Dorian Green-Beckham caught four touchdown passes in the Tigers’ domination of Kentucky, which earned high praise from head coach Gary Pinkel.
“Well there is a physical mismatch with almost anybody he plays against,” Pinkel said. “He’s 6’6, weighs 225 pounds and he’s athletic, he can jump. We’re just fortunate he’s on my team. A guy like that can make plays, you coach them only to a certain point, you can throw it up and he made a couple really great catches.
“It was nice at the end, they called that slant at the end because they were going fade, fade, fade and then that fourth-and-three at that particular time we went for it and obviously we set the whole thing up with all those fade routes and he set the slant route up, looked pretty good. Did a lot of good things.”
Green-Beckham, who caught seven passes for 100 yards, said he thought Kentucky was paying him close attention.
“I guess that was one of their game plans, to key on me really,” said the sophomore. “The safety was rolling over most of the game. I just felt like I came out there and just beat their defense myself and just went out there and made plays.”
