After dropping its Homecoming match against Middle Tennessee State the week before, Missouri came into the game 2-5. As fans filed in throughout the first quarter, Kentucky’s possessions piled up, ending the 15 minutes with a touchdown and numerous defensive stops. Missouri wouldn’t get on the scoreboard until after two more Wildcat touchdowns.
