Missouri scores touchdown, but losing streak continues

by Benjamin Herrold

There might be a rule that when Missouri hosts Thursday night football games, it must rain and rain hard. During last Thursday’s game with Mississippi State, the heavens dutifully opened up and for a while, the Tigers and Bulldogs were playing in sheets of rain.

Fortunately it didn’t rain all game long this time, and somewhere in all those drops of rain Missouri broke its 47-drive drought

MU goes third straight game without a touchdown

by Benjamin Herrold

I like to think I have a decent vocabulary, but it’s difficult to think of adjectives to adequately describe how hard-to-watch Missouri’s 10-3 loss to Vanderbilt last Saturday was.

Playing on a gray day in the otherwise vibrant city of Nashville, Missouri (4-4, 1-4 in SEC play) and Vanderbilt (3-4, 1-3 in SEC) had offenses that almost comically struggled to score. Both kickers missed field goals off

MU’s offensive struggles continue

by Benjamin Herrold

Last Saturday night in Athens, a charming, quintessential college town, Missouri and Georgia played on a grand stage. Playing “Between the Hedges” that famously ring the field, the teams ran out before a lively crowd of 92,746. A trumpet soloist had played the opening notes to Georgia’s “Battle Hymn” fight song, driving the crowd into a frenzy. It was Homecoming in Georgia. It was SEC football. It

Missouri loses Homecoming game, travels to Georgia next

by Benjamin Herrold

As usual, Missouri put on a good show for its Homecoming game, with the campus throughly decorated, a pep rally next to the familiar dome of Jesse Hall, and over 70,000 people at Faurot Field for the game. Under the lights, with the No. 11 Florida Gators were in town, the crowd was charged.

And then, the game started. Florida is a very good team, and first-year

Missouri hosts Florida in big Homecoming game

by Benjamin Herrold

On a mostly clear, crisp fall day at Faurot Field, freshman quarterback Drew Lock trotted out for his first start at Missouri to roars and applause from the crowd. It felt like the beginning of a new era for Mizzou football.

Lock has shown enormous potential as a freshman. So with Maty Mauk suspended for an unspecified violation of team rules, Lock got the start Saturday as

Mizzou drops SEC opener

by Benjamin Herrold

After two weeks of Missouri playing shaky games but finding a way to win, the jig was up Saturday night in Kentucky. The Wildcats beat Missouri 21-13 in the Tigers’ SEC opener.

It was a defensive game, as you might expect when two teams play that each scored exactly 9 points the week before. For the most part, Missouri’s defense played a good game, but the Tigers

After narrow win, Missouri heads into SEC play

by Benjamin Herrold

Saturday was a beautiful day for a football game in Columbia, with blue skies and fairly mild temperatures compared to the steamy conditions for the season opener Labor Day weekend. But while the weather was beautiful, the actual game was decidedly not beautiful.

Missouri (3-0), a heavy favorite, held on for a bizarre 9-6 win over Connecticut (2-1).

The difference came from Missouri blocking two kicks, one

MU Grinds out 11th Straight Road Win

by Benjamin Herrold

It wasn’t always pretty, but Missouri churned out a 27-20 win at Arkansas State on Saturday night.

Aided by two first-half Tiger interceptions, Arkansas State (0-2) took a 17-10 lead into halftime. But Missouri (2-0) battled back to earn its 11th straight road win.

As has often been the case over the last two years, the Tiger defense played a starring role, holding Arkansas State to 217

Missouri Opens Season with Win

Heads to Arkansas State next

by Benjamin Herrold

Missouri kicked off its season last Saturday with a 34-3 win over Southeast Missouri State University at Faurot Field. On a hot early September afternoon in Columbia, beginning the 90th season for the Tigers at Faurot, No. 24 Missouri jumped ahead early with two first quarter touchdowns from Maty Mauk to J’Mon Moore and Nate Brown.

But after that, the game slumped
