Mizzou Tops OK-State At Cotton Bowl

Henry Josey rushed for a 16-yard touchdown with just over three minutes to play as the Missouri Tigers held off the number-13 Oklahoma State Cowboys 41-31 in the Cotton Bowl from AT&T Stadium. The Pokes were in field goal range with under a minute to go but Shane Ray returned a fumble 73 yards for a touchdown to secure the "W." Josey ended with 92 yards and three rushing TDs for eighth-ranked Missouri, which closes the year at 12-and-2. James Franklin was 15-of-40 for 174 yards and an interception while Maty Mauk threw a touchdown in the win. Clint Chelf threw for 377 yards, two touchdowns and two picks for Oklahoma State, which ends the season at 10-and-3. He added 52 yards and a score on the ground while Desmond Roland also had a rushing touchdown in defeat.

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Union Senior Bethany Coons. Bethany finished the basketball season at Union averaging 11 points and eight assists per game. Coach Dusty Weiskopf says Bethany is good at handling the basketball and teams would find it difficult to press Union when Bethany was in the game because of her lateral movement. When combining her scoring and assist averages, Bethany was contributing about 25 points per game.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
