Missouri vs. Alabama final: Tigers lose 42-10

In a game marked by torrential downpour and a lightning delay midway through the second quarter, the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide overcame the elements to beat the Missouri Tigers, 42-10.

Alabama put up more than 500 yards of total offense, with 351 yards and all six of the Crimson Tide's touchdowns coming on the ground. Missouri, on the other hand, struggled significantly to establish any offense whatsoever and amassed just 152 yards total on the afternoon.

The game ended on a chilling note, as Mizzou tight end Eric Waters was carted off of the field with an apparent head or neck injury sustained after being tackled out of bounds with about a minute left to play. The game was allowed to resume, during which the clock was run out.

Box Score Hero: Alabama's Eddie Lacy was absolutely unstoppable today. The halfback rushed for 176 yards and three touchdowns on just 18 attempts.

Rankings Ramifications: The Tide is not going anywhere in the rankings. They will easily hold on to their No. 1 overall spot.

But Did They Cover? Alabama was favored by 21 heading into this game, so they did cover the spread.

Next Week's Schedule: Next week, Alabama will travel to Tennessee to face the rival Volunteers while Missouri has a bye before hosting Kentucky on Oct. 27.

Alabama leads Mizzou at halftime, 28-7

The Alabama Crimson Tide are rolling through the Missouri Tigers, 28-7 at halftime of Saturday's game. After rain delayed action for a while in the second quarter, play resumed and No. 1 Alabama maintained its level of dominance.

Since Alabama had already jumped out to a 21-0 first quarter lead, the teams just traded scores in the second quarter.

Eddie Lacy scored the first two touchdowns of the game for the Tide, one on a 73-yard run and the next on a short gain. T.J. Yeldon scored the next couple of touchdowns for Alabama which extended the lead to 28-0. The Tigers finally got on the board with a 98-yard kickoff return Marcus Murphy.

The Tide's dominance doesn't just show in the scoreboard. Beyond that, Alabama is crushing Mizzou in total yards (354 to 65) first downs (15 to 3), and despite having a pair of turnovers on fumbles lost, Alabama is still up big.
