Here is a summary of the third quarter as Murray State takes on Mizzou at Faurot Field
Missouri starts the quarter with the ball and they need just 3 plays to go 70 yards and they reach the end zone on a 37 yard TD pass from James Franklin to Darius White to put the Tigers up 37-14
The Mizzou defense then gets the ball back for the offense when a Braylon Webb interception sets Missouri up at the Murray St. 43 yard line and 10 plays later James Franklin hits L’Damian Washington with a 4 yard touchdown pass to make it 44-14. It was Franklin’s 3rd touchdown pass of the night.
EJ Gaines then records his second interception of the night on the Racers next possession to set Missouri up at the Murray St. 35 yard line. Maty Mauk then takes over at quarterback for James Franklin but can’t move the ball and the Tigers give up the ball on downs to the Racers at the Racers 27 yard line.
Murray St. then goes three and out and the Tigers defense continues to be very impressive after a rough first quarter. Missouri takes over at their own 32 yard line after a punt.
The Tigers need one play to score as Henry Josey scampers 68 yards to give Missouri a 51-14 lead with 6:23 left in the 3rd quarter.
The next Murray St. possession results in yet another punt and Mizzou takes over at their own 36 yard line. They keep possession until the quarter ends.
