The only score in the third quarter between the two teams was a 22-yard field goal off the foot of Tigers kicker Andrew Baggett. Otherwise, the two teams are having great trouble moving the ball with any authority.
The Tigers are seeking their first conference win and were leading the Commodores after the first quarter. However, starting quarterback James Franklin suffered a knee injury and was ruled out of the game in the second quarter.
Franklin's injury left the Tigers with no choice but to turn to backup quarterback Corbin Berkstresser, who has struggled mightily in the game. The freshman has completed just 6 of his 24 pass attempts for 62 yards and has picked up 15 yards on the ground. Fortunately for Missouri, the defense has remained stout in allowing the Vanderbilt offense to score just one touchdown on the day.
