Second Half Collapse Sees Missouri Stun Arkansas
COLUMBIA, MO. (KFSM) – Arkansas seemed to be headed for their eighth win of the season as the Razorbacks led Missouri 24-7 at the half. Then the second half happened.
Missouri, who entered with a 3-8 record, scored 21 straight points and turned away Arkansas three different times in the red zone as the Tigers stole a 28-24 win in the Battle Line Rivalry.
Austin Allen threw for 348 yards but was picked off in the end zone twice and then was sacked on a 4th-and-goal from the 20 in the final minute of the game.
The Razorbacks offense was able to keep their Missouri counterpart on the sideline for all but five minutes in the first half but the second half was a different story as the Tigers’ offense started rolling.
Drew Lock had receivers running open behind the Arkansas secondary for much of the afternoon and connected with Johnathan Johnson for a 67-yard score to cut the gap to 24-14.
