Temple Outshines 2 Heisman Finalists as Missouri Shows BCS

DALLAS (AP) _ The guys from the ``Show-Me State'' made their
case for having deserved a chance in one of the elite bowl games.

They routed Darren McFadden and Arkansas 38-7 in the Cotton
Bowl.

The biggest surprise is that the emphasis came from running back
Tony Temple, not quarterback Chase Daniel, a Heisman Trophy
finalist like McFadden.

Temple broke longstanding Cotton Bowl records with 281 yards and
four touchdowns. Both records fell on his last run, a spinning,
tackle-breaking, 40-yarder into the end zone.

Daniel and a lineman celebrated by carrying Temple back to the
sideline. It was Mizzou's first New Year's Day game since 1970.

Mizzou (12-2) was ranked Number One after beating Kansas in the
regular season finale, then lost badly to Oklahoma in the Big 12
title game.
