Final

First Quarter Notes

  • Bazelak missed a wide-open Boo Smith for a touchdown, Tigers are forced to punt on their first drive.
  • KJ Jefferson busts through the Tigers line for a 49-yard gain.
  • A Blaze Alldredge on third down in the red zone forces Arkansas to opt for a Cam Little field goal.
  • Bazelak and Badie combined to pick up a couple of first downs, but penalties halt the drive around midfield.
  • Tigers force a punt, mount yet another promising drive, yet are stopped again, this time on a 4th and 5.

Second Quarter Notes

  • An Arkansas fumble allowed Missouri to be set up nicely in Razorback territory, and Harrison Mevis hit a 45-yard field goal to tie the game at 3.
  • After a couple of defensive stops, Treylon Burks catches a 43-yard pass that sets the Razorbacks up inside the Mizzou 10-yard line. Arkansas would punch it in to make it 10-3.
  • Keke Chism reels in a one-handed grab down the sideline to convert a 3rd and 6 and keep Arkansas from taking all momentum.
  • A Tyler Badie facemask penalty becomes just the next foul to halt a Tiger drive, but Harrison Mevis hits a 49-yard field goal to cut the Razorback lead to 4.
  • Run defense continues to bottle up the vaunted Hog rushing attack. Have only allowed 77 yards on the ground.
  • Another holding call brings the ensuing Missouri drive back, and the Tigers punt.

Third Quarter Notes

  • Both teams punt to start the half.
  • A 55-yard pass from Jefferson to De’Vion Warren set up another Arkansas touchdown, extending the Razorback lead to 17-6. Explosive plays continue to be a killer for Mizzou.
  • Tyler Badie slips on a third down screen pass that would’ve been a big gain, forcing Sean Koetting to punt again.
  • Razorbacks get a solid punt return to take over near midfield.
  • KJ Jefferson finds Traylon Burks 1-on-1 outside for a 52-yard score to widen the gap in this game.
  • Missouri drove down the field, but the theme of the game continued. The Tigers could not convert in scoring position, and Mevis hit another field goal.
  • Another explosive passing play ends the third quarter for Arkansas, as they look to put the game away.

Fourth Quarter Notes

  • Arkansas caps off the drive with a field goal to make it an 18-point game.
  • Connor Bazelak throws an interception on the very next drive, and Sanders punches in another Razorback touchdown.
  • Mizzou punts yet again, as Badie can receive no help from his passing game.
  • Badie caps off a stat-stuffing day with another short touchdown run.
