Missouri was punched in the mouth for the first time this season in its 15-point loss Saturday at Kansas State.

Tonight, the ninth-ranked Tigers will have to answer to defeat for the first time when they travel to Iowa State (7 p.m., KMIZ-TV).

"It was great learning over in Manhattan in terms of they just physically got after us and we didn't respond the way we need to respond against a team that physically was just very aggressive," Missouri coach Frank Haith said. "Time will tell. I want to see how we'll bounce back (tonight) against Iowa State."
