Mizzou football v. Miami (Ohio) 17-6

I really enjoyed shooting my first Mizzou football game this weekend. It took some time to adjust to running up and down the field with a 300mm but I am really looking forward to spending the rest of season as one of two lead football photographers for the Columbia Missourian.

MU quarterback James Franklin is tackled by Miami (Ohio) linebacker Mitch Krotz at the football game on Saturday on Faurot Field. More than 58,000 people attended the game.
