Kentucky drove to the Missouri 13 yard line on the very first drive of the game, but Jonathan George was stripped of the ball Sheldon Richardson returned the ball to the Kentucky 25 yard line. Kendial Lawrence scored four plays later and this was an indication of how the game would go. In the fourth quarter, EJ Gaines returned a fumbled 33-0 for the final points of the game.
And there was a lot of sloppy football in between. Neither team really was impressive offensively as Missouri had just 273 yards compared to Kentucky’s 179. Kendial Lawrence had 108 yards rushing with two TD’s but no other players, even the QB’s could pass the 100 yard mark. Missouri evens their record at 4-4 and Kentucky falls to 1-8.
