COLUMBIA - Over a week of conditioning and drills led up to the Tigers first scrimmage of fall camp on Saturday.

During the scrimmage the offense and defense played each other fairly even. In the end the defense was able to edge out the offense by a score of 14 - 10. The prize for winning the scrimmage is the defense will now have the honor of wearing the black jerseys.

Kony Ealy, defensive lineman was a big part of the defense's success on Saturday. He pitched in with one pass break up and a forced fumble.

"I think overall we did a great job. They got on top of us one time. So I mean you have to live with something, but we prefer that not to happen," said Ealy.

EJ Gaines, cornerback also had a solid day for the Tigers defense. He recorded a half a sack and an interception.

On the offense side of the ball James Franklin lead the way for Mizzou. He went 11 for 19 for 175 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He said he thinks the team is off to a better start this year compared to last year. He said overall the scrimmage was successful.

"It was good. There were a couple times when it was definitely a little bit slower. Not a whole lot you know three or four seconds," said Franklin.

Marcus Lucas was on the receiving end of several of Franklin's passes on Saturday. He ended the day with three receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown.

"James is playing really confident. He's playing like the leader that he is," said Lucas.

Head Coach Gary Pinkel said there are still a few things that the offense needs to work on.  The offensive  scheme has some new plays, but it is all good additions he said. The offense still has to work on it's timing and avoid dropping passes said Pinkel.

"Missed a couple of throws, so you know that's Missouri beating Missouri. Those things can be fixed," said Pinkel.

Other standouts for the Tigers during the scrimmage included quarterback Maty Mauk and running back Marcus Murphy. Mauk went 11 for 22  for 211 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. Murphy gained 57 yards on seven carries.

The Tigers will have two more scrimmages before fall camp comes to a close.
