Missouri-Arkansas football: Live updates, score, analysis

RB Damarea Crockett (ankle) is officially unavailable for the third time in three years against his home state Razorbacks. WR Nate Brown and TE Albert Okwuegbunam were also not on the field to start the game, and it’s safe to assume they probably won’t be seeing the field.

FIRST QUARTER

10:54 — Drew Lock punches one in from nine yards out for the first score of the game. Missouri 7, Arkansas 0.

0:29 — Arkansas’ Ty Storey tries to get the ball off to avoid the sack, but he throws it right into Terez Hall’s hands to essentially end the quarter. Missouri 7, Arkansas 0.

SECOND QUARTER

13:11 — Lock missed a wide open Emanuel Hall earlier in the drive but then runs the ball in himself from three yards out. Missouri 14, Arkansas 0.

12:33 — Jordan Elliott hits Storey before he can throw and forces a fumble. The ball rolls around a bit until Akial Byers recovers it in the end zone for a touchdown. This one is starting to get ugly. Missouri 21, Arkansas 0.

5:21 — Arkansas goes for it on fourth and five, but new QB Connor Noland is sacked by Terez Hall for a loss of 14 and a turnover on downs. Missouri has a chance to really put this one away before halftime. Missouri 21, Arkansas 0.

0:35 — Lock finds Emanuel Hall on a 6-yard pass for a touchdown. Missouri picks a four-score lead just before halftime. Missouri 28, Arkansas 0.

THIRD QUARTER

11:50 — Arkansas finds its way to the red zone and goes for it on fourth and five, but a huge stand from the defense keeps the shutout intact. Missouri 28, Arkansas 0.

8:19 — Doesn’t take too long for the Tigers to add to the lead. Lock hits Emanuel Hall on a 67-yard touchdown for their second TD connection of the game. If this wasn’t a blow out before — it was — this game is surely getting out of hand now. Missouri 35, Arkansas 0.

1:48 — Tucker McCann picks up the first non-touchdown score of the game on a 42-yard field goal. Arkansas can just smell its first 10-loss season in program history. Missouri 38, Arkansas 0.

FOURTH QUARTER

9:10 — Drew Lock officially walks off Faurot Field for the last time in his Missouri career. He hugs his teammates and leaves the field to a standing ovation from the crowd. His final home stat line: 16-for-25, 221 yards and four total touchdowns. Missouri 38, Arkansas 0.

2:26 — Arkansas gets the ball at its own 38 and will have its last shot at avoiding a shutout. If Missouri’s defense keeps the Razorbacks off the board, it will be the Tigers’ shutout of a conference opponent since Iowa State in 2010. Missouri 38, Arkansas 0.

0:00 — De’Vion Warren completes a pass to run out the clock, and Missouri finishes the regular season 8-4 overall and 4-4 in the SEC. Missouri 38, Arkansas 0.
