Kentucky vs. Missouri score update: Tigers lead 10-7 after first quarter

Dak Dillon-US PRESSWIRE

Sheldon Richardson's forced fumble paid dividend for Mizzou's offense, which is without James Franklin.

The Missouri Tigers and Kentucky Wildcats enter Saturday in search of their first SEC wins of the season. With a large Homecoming crowd packing Memorial Stadium in Columbia, the Tigers have taken a 10-7 lead after one quarter of play.

Kentucky received the ball to begin the game. They drove it down the field with relative ease, but a great strip by Sheldon Richardson, and then a 60-yard return, helped set up Mizzou for their first touchdown drive of the game. Kendial Lawrence found the end zone with a five-yard rush to make the score 7-0.

The Wildcats responded on their next drive. After a solid kick return put them in good field position, UK needed just four plays to go 50 yards as they tied it up at sevens.

Andrew Baggett hit a 44-yard field goal late in the quarter to give MU a 10-7 lead. Kentucky has the ball deep in their own territory as the second quarter begins.
