Mizzou continues to tumble, loses big to Kentucky
LEXINGTON- The Missouri Tigers football team falls for the second week in a row, losing 29-7 to the Kentucky Wildcats.
Whether it was the torrential downpour of rain or the early hamstring injury to Kelly Bryant, the Tigers looked flat on both sides of the ball.
Throwing only seven times on the night, the Kentucky Wildcats found their rhythm on the ground and Mizzou was unable to stop them.
In addition to a 43 yard field goal, all three of their first half touchdowns were rushing scores, the Wildcats led 22-0 at halftime.
Mizzou finally found the end zone in the third quarter on a 74 yard strike from Kelly Bryant to Tyler Badie. However, Bryant was ineffective the rest of the night and was eventually pulled from the game due to a nagging hamstring injury suffered in the first quarter.
Kentucky put any comeback aspirations to rest in the fourth quarter on a 33 yard touchdown run from quarterback Lynn Bowden Jr., pushing the score to 29-7.
The Tigers suffer their second straight road loss and a crushing blow to a season that looked more than hopeful just two weeks ago.
Going into a bye week, Mizzou will look to regroup before traveling to Athens, Georgia for a showdown with the 10th ranked Bulldogs on November 9th.
