Missouri-Ole Miss football: Live updates, score, analysis
Final: Missouri 38, Ole Miss 27
The game got a little closer than the Tigers would’ve liked, but a win is a win. Missouri closes this one out on homecoming night.
8:09 Q4: Tucker McCann nails a 38-yard field goal. He’s perfect on field goal attempts today (but not on PATs).
1:02 Q3: After a huge 26-yard completion from Kelly Bryant to Dominic Gicinto, Larry Rountree III rumbles into the end zone for a 1-yard touchdown. Missouri has now scored 30 or more points in 11 straight games, the second longest streak in the country.
5:07 Q3: Dawson Downing busted out a huge 54-yard rush to the house, stretching the ball just over the goal line with an Ole Miss defender draped all over him. And then Tucker McCann nailed the PAT! Everything’s going right for Missouri at the moment.
9:30 Q3: Tucker McCann is good from 39 yards out after a 49-yard pass from Kelly Bryant to Tyler Badie got Missouri into field goal range. McCann has been good on all three field goal attempts yet has missed both PATs. Again, that’s strange.
13:16 Q3: Larry Rountree has been solid all day and just broke off for a 41-yard touchdown run. The way he can burst through the line is very fun to watch.
But then there’s Tucker McCann, who just missed his second PAT of the game. He’s had his accuracy issues in the past, but it’s pretty strange to see him miss those easy kicks.
Halftime: Missouri 12, Ole Miss 7
Tigers get a huge goal line stop from the defense to preserve their first half lead, and they’ll get receive the kickoff in the second half. Kelly Bryant is 13 for 19 passing for 142 yards and a touchdown. Tyler Badie and Larry Rountree III have 63 yards combined on the ground.
4:38 Q2: Tucker McCann makes up for a missed PAT earlier in the game as he nails a 48-yard field goal. Missouri extends its lead to five, now up 12-7.
13:23 Q2: What a great play design by offensive coordinator Derek Dooley. Had Yasir Durant as an eligible receiver, Kelly Bryant got the defense to close in on him and Tyler Badie wound up wide open for the pass. Badie then ran the ball in for a 17-yard touchdown to give Missouri a 9-7 lead.
0:49 Q1: Missouri’s defense has been pretty average today, but the Tigers came up huge when they needed it. John Rhys Plumlee fumbles the ball on the snap and Jatorian Hansford recovers it. Huge break for Missouri.
8:00 Q1: Missouri can’t get into the end zone but Tucker McCann kicks a field goal to make up for it. Tigers trail 7-3.
13:54 Q1: Missouri forces a three-and-out but Johnathon Johnson muffs the catch on the punt and Ole Miss recovers in Tigers’ territory. Missouri already feeling the effects of Richaud Floyd’s absence.
Richaud Floyd is in street clothes. He was doubtful to play this week with a hamstring injury, and it looks like he’ll be out against the Rebels.
Tre Williams is going through warmups, though, so it looks like he might play after missing last week against Troy.
