COLUMBIA, MO - James Franklin had nearly 300 yards of total offense, and Henry Josey ran for two touchdowns to lead Mizzou to a 38-23 win over Toledo.

The win moves the Tigers to 2-0 for the first time since 2010.

The defenses dominated for the first 28 minutes, as Mizzou held a 10-9 lead until Dorial Green-Beckham hauled in a nine-yard TD reception from Franklin.

The Tigers extended the advantage to 24-9 early in the third quarter after Markus Golden took a bobbled throw from Toledo quarterback Terrance Owens and returned it 70 yards for a touchdown.
