Missouri coach Gary Pinkel had never handed out a game ball to an individual player before Saturday when he decided to honor running back Henry Josey following the Tigers' victory over Murray State.

Josey, a junior from Galveston, Texas, returned to play for the first time after suffering a major knee injury against Texas nearly two years ago (Nov. 3, 2011) that required multiple surgeries. Josey rushed for 113 yards on 13 carries and scored on a 68-yard run.
