The Missouri Tigers are looking to become bowl eligible against the Texas Tech Red Raiders, and so far through one half they are in a tussle with Texas Tech who also are looking to become bowl eligible. Missouri fell behind 14-0 after the first quarter behind two quick scoring drives.
Texas Tech has been led by quarterback Seth Doege who is 17-for-26 with 126 yards at the half, but he has not thrown for a touchdown. It has been the rushing game that has scored the points for Texas Tech with Doege scoring on a quarterback run and the other by Bradley Marquez who scored on a 1-yard play.
Missouri used the second quarter to get things in order and began their comeback by scoring on a lengthy 10-play 90 yard drive to get their first touchdown on the afternoon on a James Franklin 5-yard rush. Franklin has rushed for 56 yards and has passed for 60 yards on 5-for-9 passing.
Missouri and Texas Tech then exchanged field goals in the final minute of the half to give Texas Tech a seven point lead at the half.
