MAKE BADIE ITS REASON
• One of the best running backs in the country, Tyler badie became the fifth player in the country to eclipse 1,000 yards rushing this season. The senior ranks 10th nationally in rushing yards (1,030), yards per game (114.4), 11th in total points (90) and fifth in total touchdowns (15). Each of these brands runs the SEC. Badie is also second in the SEC and fifth nationally in scoring (10.0 points per game) and 18th nationally and second in rushing touchdowns (11).
• The running back is set to rise on Mizzou’s ground running list in a single season, needing just 68 yards to tie Bob Stueber’s campaign in 1942 for 10th place in the record books all time.
• Badie has run for over 200 yards on three separate occasions this season (254 v Vanderbilt, 209 v North Texas, 203 v CMU). He’s the only player in the country with three 200-yard games this season and one of five SEC players to have achieved the feat since 2000 (Leonard Fournette, Derrick Henry, Lynn Bowden Jr. and Trayveon Williams).
• His 254-yard rushing performance at Vanderbilt was the most marked by a Mizzou in the SEC era (2012-pres) and the fifth in program history. He’s the first Tiger to run for 200 yards three times in a season and one of only two Mizzou players to have managed three 200-yard games in his career, joining Brad Smith.
• With his 17-yard reception against Tennessee, Badie became the first Mizzou Tiger in program history to reach 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in his career. He became the first SEC player to reach the mark since Kentucky wide receiver Lynn Bowden, Jr., did so in 2019.
• Another first, Badie is the only Tiger to have scored a combination of 15 points on the ground and 10 touchdowns on reception.
• Badie is the first Tiger since Jeremy Maclin in 2007 to record four rushing and receiving touchdowns in a season.
• His 203-yard performance in the season opener was a Tiger’s first since Larry Rountree scored 204 in December 2018 against Oklahoma State. The 203 rushing yards were the 15th most in Mizzou history.
• In Kentucky, Badie posted a career-best 10 receptions for 88 yards. He became the first Tiger to catch 10 assists in a game since Emmanuel Hall did so against Wyoming in 2018.
BAILEY BRINGS THE Boom
• Redshirt junior linebacker Chad Bailey took the opportunity to enter the starting lineup this season, racking up 23 of 31 tackles in five starts.
• Bailey produced a career day at No. 1 Georgia, making 10 tackles to help Mizzou’s defense put in their best performance of the season.
• At Vanderbilt, Bailey had two tackles for a loss and registered his first career sack in a six tackle effort.
CARLIES CREATING THE HAVOC
• Safety in the second year Jaylon carlie was a force behind Mizzou’s defense, creating five turnovers for the Tigers.
• The safety got his fourth INT of the season at Georgia, tying Carlies for fourth nationally and second in the SEC this season.
• Carlies recorded his first collegiate interception in the season opener against Central Michigan. He had two straight games with an INT shooting a deflected pass from Kentucky QB Will Levis in week two.
• Back-to-back INTs made Carlies the first Mizzou player to pass an assist in back-to-back games since Adam Sparks pulled off the feat against Vanderbilt and Arkansas in 2017.
• Safety also made one of the biggest plays of the game, forcing a late British fumble late in the first half which was picked up by the Tigers in the end zone. The play led to a Mizzou touchdown with four seconds left in the half, pulling Black & Gold to under seven at the break.
