Missouri-Arkansas football: Live updates, score, analysis
Final: Missouri 24, Arkansas 14
It won’t make up for the disappointing season, but the Tigers ended 2019 on a good note with a 10-point win over Arkansas. That extends Missouri’s Battle Line Rivalry win streak to four.
8:47 Q4: No toe-heel situation is going to take away a Jonathan Nance pass this time. Nance gets some revenge on his former team, catching a 10-yard touchdown pass from Taylor Powell to put Missouri up 24-14.
11:25 Q4: The field goal is no-good! Arkansas kicker Connor Limpert is short on a 54-yarder, and Missouri’s lead remains at 3. Now would be a good time for the Tigers to score.
7:00 Q3: Tyler Badie was fantastic on that drive. Six rushes for 53 yards, including the go-ahead touchdown. Missouri is back in front, 17-14.
13:34 Q3: Taylor Powell is intercepted on the first play of the half, and then Jack Lindsey hits Grayson Gunter for a 10-yard touchdown. Brutal turn of events there for Missouri. Tigers fall fall behind 14-10.
Halftime: Missouri 10, Arkansas 7
Larry Rountree III and Barrett Banister have looked good, the defense picked up a huge fourth down stop to halt an Arkansas drive late in the half, and the Tigers have their first halftime lead since the Ole Miss game.
5:08 Q2: A pretty disastrous drive for Missouri injury-wise ends in a Tucker McCann 26-yard field goal going through the uprights. The Tigers take a 10-7 lead.
8:13 Q2: Taylor Powell comes in to replace Connor Bazelak, who is doubtful to return, and finds Kam Scott down the seam for 30 yards. Scott, though, stayed down after the play and walked to the sideline with a slight limp. And then Missouri confirms Jalen Knox is doubtful to return with a left ankle injury. Injury bug biting the Tigers hard right now.
9:50 Q2: Connor Bazelak with an awkward run to the right sideline, doesn’t run out of bounds or slide and instead takes a hit. Jalen Knox hits the Arkansas return man on the ensuing punt and is called for targeting, though a replay overturns it. Weird sequence of events for Missouri.
14:56 Q2: Larry Rountree III shakes off a couple tacklers and runs it in on the first play of the second quarter. Fourteen-play drive that took almost seven minutes off the clock. Missouri and Arkansas are tied, 7-7.
End Q1: Missouri trails 7-0 but is driving deep in Arkansas territory. Tigers will have it on first down at the five to start the second quarter. Barrett Banister is showing why he’s the slot receiver of the future for Missouri. He’s putting on a show so far in Little Rock.
6:49 Q1: Christian Holmes has struggled the last two games. Jack Lindsey hadn’t completed a pass all game, but he had a free play due to a Kobie Whiteside offsides penalty and he hits Trey Knox with a 19-yard touchdown in the back of the end zone. Missouri trails 7-0.
10:17 Q1: The Connor Bazelak-era starts with a deep ball incompletion, a sack and then a first down pass to Jonathan Nance.

Tough way for their careers to end.
