Tigers Fall to Mississippi State 31-13
The good news for the Missouri Tigers football team on Thursday night? They found the end zone. The bad news. The Tigers scored just one TD and lost 31-13 to Mississippi State at rainy Faurot Field in Columbia. After two field goals, Mizzou scored late in the second quarter on Russell Hansbrough’s 14 yard run to cut the Mississippi State lead to 14-13. But two third quarter touchdown passes by Bulldogs quarterback Dak Prescott turned the game into a rout. Mizzou quarterback Drew Lock completed 11 of 26 passes for 107 yards, but was intercepted twice. The Tigers did rediscover their running game, going for 215 yards. Tyler Hunt rushed for 85 yards, Ish Witter for 81 and Hansbrough for 62 yards.
The loss is Missouri’s fourth in a row, something that hasn’t happened to them since 2004. Mizzou’s season record drops to 4-5.
