Neither team scored in the fourth quarter to make the final score 24-10
The road has been a friendly place for the Tigers this season as Mizzou finishes their road schedule undefeated (5-0).

The biggest game at Faurot Field since 2010 when Mizzou plays Texas A&M next week, who lost in their game this week. As this fan said:
