Missouri Vs. Texas Tech: Tigers Complete Comeback To Win 31-27

The Missouri Tigers trailed from the start of the game and it was not until the fourth quarter when Missouri scored 14 fourth quarter points to earn the victory. Missouri trailed 14-0 in the first quarter and could never get closer than seven points when Missouri trailed 14-7 in the second quarter. From that point on the two teams exchanged field goals and touchdowns from the second and third quarters. 

Missouri's comeback was led by quarterback James Franklin who had 324 total yards with 172 passing and 152 running the ball and had a hand in all four of Missouri's touchdowns with two in the air and two on the ground. In the fourth quarter the Missouri defense was finally able to stop the Texas Tech Red Raiders offense and forced them to punt on three plays twice.

Texas Tech was able to move the ball late in the fourth quarter with a chance to win the game, driving to the Missouri six, before Dominique Hamilton tipped a pass from Seth Doege and Michael Sam intercepted at the four to perserve the Missouri win.

The win also makes Missouri bowl eligible with one game left to play.
