Missouri Vs. Baylor Score: Henry Josey Gives Tigers Early Lead 7-0

Missouri's Henry Josey capped off a big first quarter with a six yard touchdown run to put the Missouri Tigers in front of the Baylor Bears 7-0 at the end of the first quarter. The Tigers were able to stop a long Baylor drive when Bears' quarterback Robert Griffin III fumbled into the end zone for a touchback. 

Josey has 65 yards rushing in the first quarter on just six carries as the Tigers doubled up on the Bears in terms of time of possession. James Franklin completed 5 of 9 passes for 42 yards and ran for 32 more. Most importantly, the Tigers are winning the turnover battle as they can ill afford to give Griffin III extra opportunities with the football. 

Griffin III threw for 91 yards and ran for 38 more in the first quarter but it was his fumble that stalled out Baylor's best drive of the game.
