Kentucky vs. Missouri score update: Tigers lead 10-7 after first quarter

Sheldon Richardson's forced fumble paid dividend for Mizzou's offense, which is without James Franklin.

Dak Dillon-US PRESSWIRE

The Missouri Tigers and Kentucky Wildcats enter Saturday in search of their first SEC wins of the season. With a large Homecoming crowd packing Memorial Stadium in Columbia, the Tigers have taken a 10-7 lead after one quarter of play.

Kentucky received the ball to begin the game. They drove it down the field with relative ease, but a great strip by Sheldon Richardson, and then a 60-yard return, helped set up Mizzou for their first touchdown drive of the game. Kendial Lawrence found the end zone with a five-yard rush to make the score 7-0.

The Wildcats responded on their next drive. After a solid kick return put them in good field position, UK needed just four plays to go 50 yards as they tied it up at sevens.

Andrew Baggett hit a 44-yard field goal late in the quarter to give MU a 10-7 lead. Kentucky has the ball deep in their own territory as the second quarter begins.
