Alabama vs. Missouri score update: Tide leads 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.
