Final: Missouri 7 Florida 14
Missouri scored first but it was Florida who score the last 14 points of the game and survived in the Swamp.
Missouri got on the board in the second quarter on a Kendial Lawrence one-yard touchdown run. While Missouri moved the ball effectively throughout the game, they wouldn't put up any more points. James Franklin was playing at less than 100% and it showed in the way he threw the ball today. Franklin finished the game with four interceptions and missed on a handful of passes that could have gone for big gains and touchdowns.
Florida's offense struggled again and had to rely on their defense to pull this game out. Florida tied the game before halftime on an Omarius Hines 36-yard touchdown run from the wildcat formation. Jeff Driskel connected with Mike Gillislee on a 45-yard screen pass that would end up being the deciding touchdown in the game.
Despite driving into Florida territory six times in the second half, Missouri wasn't able to put any points on the board. Florida's defense stepped up in a big way against Missouri and are the reason Florida moved to 8-1 on the season.
The game marks the end of Florida's SEC schedule, they will finish 7-1 in the SEC and still have a chance to play for the SEC Championship. Florida's attention will turn to Georgia, who must win their next two games to clinch the SEC East.
Missouri will travel to Knoxville to take on the Vols next week.
