Tigers Take on the Knights

Nathan Smith 

   Coming off of a loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks, Mizzou traveled to Florida to take on the Knights from the University of Central Florida. Entering the game, the Tigers were 2-2, and the Knights were 2-1. Missouri was in need of a win to get their team going again. The Knights were coming off a big win over Florida International and were hoping to make it two wins in a row.

   There was very little scoring going on in the game. Central Florida scored first with 3:28 left in the first quarter. It was a field goal by Shawn Moffit to give them an early lead. Missouri took the lead early in the second quarter on an 80-yard touchdown reception by Dorial Green-Beckham. Not only was it the first touchdown of the game for the Tigers, but also his first touchdown for his career. UCF took the lead again before half on a touchdown pass by Blake Bortles to Quincy McDuffie to give them a 10-7 lead at halftime.

   Marcus Murphy scored a touchdown for the Tigers with 7:04 in the game. It was a 66-yard punt return for to make it a 14-10 game. This was Murphy’s third punt return for a touchdown on the season. In the fourth quarter, Missouri went up by 11 on a 10-yard touchdown run by Kendial Lawrence. The Knights tried to make a comeback late in the game. With 4:34 left in the game, they scored a touchdown on an 18-yard touchdown pass from Bortles to Jeff Godfrey. Because of the missed two-point conversion, the Knights were down by five.

   The final score of the game was 21-10; Missouri left the game 3-2 and the Knights were 2-2. Next week, Missouri will take on the Vanderbilt Commodores for another SEC game.
