Kentucky vs. Missouri score update: Tigers kick a field goal, lead 20-10

Jeff Blake-US PRESSWIRE

The Missouri defense held Kentucky scoreless in the third quarter, and the offense converted a field goal. The Tigers lead 20-10 after three quarters of play.

Missouri Tigers' starting quarterback Corbin Berkstresser threw interceptions on back-to-back possessions in the third quarter, but luckily the defense was able to keep the Kentucky Wildcats off the board. The Tigers defense forced the Wildcats to go three-and-out on all of their third quarter possessions. Then on the final play of the third quarter, the Tigers forced a fumble and recovered the ball deep in Wildcats territory.

With Berkstresser struggling to hold on to the ball, he was benched in favor of James Franklin. Franklin has been hampered by a sprained MCL, and leading into the game head coach Gary Pinkel did not expect Franklin to see action this week.

Franklin entered the game when the Tigers had the ball at the Wildcats 12-yard line, and on 3rd-and-9, he threw a pass for a one-yard loss. Missouri then lined up and kicked a 31-yard field goal to go up 20-10.
