Final: Mizzou 50, SEMO 0

A clean 50-piece for Missouri tonight. The Tigers needed to completely dominate the Redhawks, and they did. A very, very big win heading into a matchup with South Carolina next week.

12:32 Q4: Tucker McCann kicks another one through the uprights and makes it a clean 50-point game. That one was from 52 yards out. He’s perfect so far today (on field goals).

4:42 Q3: Barry Odom shockingly still has his starters out there. Hard to understand why that’s a good idea in a blowout like this. But either way, Tyler Badie runs one in from 6 yards out and Missouri goes up 47-0.

9:33 Q3: Tucker McCann puts one through the uprights from 42 yards out. Missouri leads 40-0. Perhaps my prediction of SEMO scoring six points was a bit too generous.

14:05 Q3: Tyree Gillespie just laid out a receiver and got flagged for targeting. He could’ve been ejected from the game and would’ve had to miss the first half of next week’s game against South Carolina. Luckily, the referees reversed the call and Gillespie is safe.

End Q2: Tucker McCann nails a 44-yard FG to make it a 37-point game, and SEMO does nothing on its only play to end the half. Mizzou is up 37-0 as we head to halftime. Let’s hope for that running clock to start the second half.

1:32 Q2: Kelly Bryant and Jalen Knox look mighty comfortable with each other out there. Bryant hits Knox with a 50-yarder, their second deep connection of the game, to set up a 2-yard rushing TD for Larry Rountree III. Missouri leads SEMO 34-0.

7:05 Q2: Kelly Bryant tries to find Maurice Massey in the end zone but gets picked instead. First time we’ve seen SEMO really do anything today. Mizzou still holds a 27-0 lead.

End Q1: Mizzou 27, SEMO 0

This game looks just like it should when Missouri hosts an FCS team. No problems for the Tigers so far. It’d be nice to have a running clock to start the second quarter.

6:41 Q1: Richaud Floyd is a good return man. He sheds a couple tacklers and picks up a couple blocks on his way to a 71-yard punt return. This one’s an ugly one, folks. Tigers lead 27-0.

8:41 Q1: Kelly Bryant finds Jalen Knox deep and then hits Albert O on the very next play for another touchdown. Missouri leads SEMO 20-0.

11:07 Q1: SEMO’s QB gets crushed on a pass and the ball fall right into the hands of Cale Garrett, who returns it for a pick-six. That’s Missouri’s second in as many games. PAT is blocked but the Tigers now have taken a 13-0 lead.

12:05 Q1: Larry Rountree III gets literally whatever he wanted on that drive and ends it with a 3-yard touchdown. Missouri leads 7-0.

Pregame notes

  • Trajan Jeffcoat was seen in street clothes. He hasn’t played yet this season due to an elbow injury. Jarvis Ware, though, was announced as a starting cornerback, so it looks like his ankle injury won’t keep him out for a second week.
  • Someone’s here that’s kind of a big deal ‘round these parts:
