COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) _ The player with the odd nickname is leading
a revitalized Missouri defense.
Cornelius ``Pig'' Brown is the Big 12 defensive player of the
week after registering 14 tackles and an interception in Saturday's
41-10 win over then-number-22 Texas Tech.
Coaches and teammates marvel at Brown's work ethic and knowledge
of the game. Free safety William Moore says he and Brown often get
together on their free time to watch game film.
Number-13 Missouri hosts Iowa State Saturday at Faurot Field.
