ThinkStock(LEXINGTON, Ky.) — Maty Mauk tied a Missouri Tigers record in their 48-17 win over the Kentucky Wildcats (2-7) on Saturday.

Mauk threw five touchdown passes to tie Chase Daniel’s school record in the win.  Wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham set a record by catching four of the five.

“With your name besides his, obviously it’s a tremendous honor,” Mauk said of his achievement. “I couldn’t have done it without the five guys up front and the guys that made something happen after they caught the ball today.”

Missouri led 28-3 at half and improved to 9-1 for the season.  Green-Beckham finished the day with 100 yards and seven receptions.

“The safety was really rolling over most of the game,” Green-Beckham said. “I just felt like I came out there and just beat their defense myself and just went out there and made plays.”
