Florida used a 36-yard touchdown run from running back Omarius Hines to even up the score a little less than six minutes into the third quarter. Missouri responded with an 11-play, 68-yard drive in its quest to reclaim the lead, but Andrew Baggett's 25-yard field goal attempt was blocked, keeping the score tied.
Missouri got the ball back and sustained another long drive, but Tigers' quarterback James Franklin overshot his receiver deep in Florida territory, the end result being an interception which was returned 42 yards to the Florida 46-yard line.

Meanwhile, the Tigers have gained less than three yards per rushing attempt, and both teams' passing games have been underwhelming, although has 149 to 68 advantage in yards over his counterpart, Jeff Driskel.
