Missouri-Kentucky football: Live updates, score, analysis

Final: Kentucky 29, Missouri 7

That was bad. Nothing else can be said.

11:25 Q4: Lynn Bowden’s touchdown pretty much puts a stamp on this one. Barring some magic, Missouri should end up 0-3 on the road after this one.

6:27 Q3: TAYLOR POWELL ALERT! Missouri turning to the backup QB here.

8:13 Q3: A fresh Tyree Gillespie forced a fumble, and Joshuah Bledsoe recovers it.

But the offense continues to struggle, as a penalty and a fumble by Kam Scott eventually force Missouri to punt. Even when the defense gives it solid field position, the offense fails to move the ball.

12:40 Q3: Better start to this half for Missouri. The Tigers force a three-and-out, and then on 3rd and 12 on their next possession, Kelly Bryant hits Tyler Badie on a screen pass and Badie takes it 74-yards for a touchdown. Kentucky’s lead is cut to 15. Badie’s run was a beauty.

Halftime: Kentucky 22, Missouri 0

A lifeless offense. A tired defense that can’t keep picking up the slack. What an atrocious last six quarters it’s been for the Tigers the past two games. The only bright side: Missouri still has a half to possibly make some magic happen.

6:03 Q2: Not looking good so far folks. This is the opposite of the half Missouri needed after the debacle in Nashville. Kelly Bryant and Co. need at least a score here before the end of the half, but with the way this has gone, that seems like a tall task.

End Q1: A scoreless first quarter for both teams. Neither team has been able to do much offensively, with Tucker McCann’s missed field goal the only real scoring opportunity either team has had so far.

2:49 Q1: FUMBLE! Markell Utsey hits Lynn Bowden from behind and pokes the ball loose. DeMarkus Acy recovers. Missouri gets the ball back in its own territory.

4:29 Q1: Tucker McCann’s field goal slump continues. Missouri’s offense gets the ball into field goal range, but McCann misses one from 45 yards out. The wind and rain probably played a factor in that miss, but the last couple of games have been rough for him.

12:30 Q1: Two true freshman are starting for Missouri on defense: safety Martez Manuel and linebacker Devin Nicholson. Barry Odom and Co. must have a lot of trust in these young guys.
