Missouri junior WR Emanuel Hall snagged five catches for 102 yards with two touchdowns in a 50-17 rout of Tennessee on Saturday.

This was mostly about the run game for Missouri tonight, but Hall (6'3/200) was still able to find room in the Tennessee secondary to have a big night. A 31-yard strike from quarterback Drew Lock made it 14-7 Mizzou in the first, and his 50-yarder gave the Tigers a 31-17 lead early in the third quarter. Hall has now gone over 100 yards in two straight games, and could make it three in a row against Vanderbilt next week.

Missouri freshman RB Larry Rountree III rushed for 155 yards on 18 carries with a touchdown in a 50-17 destruction of Tennessee on Saturday.

Amazingly, he was the second-leading rusher in this one, as Ish Witter went off for 216 against the awful Tennessee defense. The freshman tailback has been a big part of Missouri's resurgence, and he now has his first career game with 100 yards rushing. His touchdown was a one-yard trip that gave Missouri a 24-17 lead at the end of the first half. The second half wasn't nearly as close. Expect plenty of touches for Rountree next week against Vanderbilt.
Nov 11 - 11:19 PM

Missouri junior QB Drew Lock completed 13-of-28 passes for 217 yards and four touchdowns with an interception in a 50-17 victory over Tennessee on Saturday.

Lock didn't have to do much in this one with the Tigers running for 433 yards against the lethargic Volunteer defense, but was still able to get his. Two of his touchdown passes went to Emmanuel Hall, and he found star J'Mon Moore and wideout Johnathon Johnson for another. The improvement of Missouri over the past week -- even if it has come against inferior competition -- is a nice story for the 2017 season. They'll look to keep it going next week against Vanderbilt.
Nov 11 - 11:14 PM

Missouri senior RB Ish Witter ran for 216 yards and a score on 24 carries in a shellacking of Tennessee on Saturday.

The Vols run defense was putrid in this one, and Witter (5-10/195) and the rest of the Tigers were happy to take advantage. His only score was a seven-yard burst to give Missouri a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, but he and Larry Rountree both were able to maneuver at will through the Volunteer front and secondary. The surprisingly resurgent Tigers take on Vanderbilt next week.

Tennessee head coach Butch Jones believes Missouri junior QB Drew Lock "will play a long time on Sundays."

"He plays with great confidence. He has moxie. He has swagger," Jones told reporters. If we were to be negative we would add that Jones might not be the greatest judge of talent. But we would never do that. The one trait everyone brings up when discussing Lock is his quick release. He has thrown 21 touchdowns compared to two interceptions over the last five games.

Missouri HC Coach Barry Odom doesn't believe that sophomore RB Damarea Crockett (shoulder) will return against Tennessee on Saturday.

Odom added that Crockett will be withheld from practice again this week, as sure a sign as any that he won't play this weekend. Crockett (5'11/212) underwent shoulder surgery in the middle of October. Details of his recovery timeline have been scant since then.
Nov 7 - 3:41 PM

Missouri freshman RB Larry Rountree III scored three times and ran for 83 yards on 15 carries in Saturday's 46-26 throttling of Florida.

Over the last three weeks, Rountree III (5'11/185) has seen his workload for the Tigers pick up significantly. Saturday against the Gators seems to be the culmination. It helps that the Florida defense couldn't stop a cold, but he showed quickness, burst and was able to find the end zone three times in the shellacking of the Gators. Even if/when Damarea Crockett comes back, Rountree III has earned more touches going forward. The Tigers take on Tennessee next week.
Nov 5 - 12:06 PM

Missouri junior WR Emanuel Hall caught five passes for 113 yards in Saturday's 45-16 win over Florida.

No touchdowns for Hall, but he led the Tigers in receiving yardage. This was the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder's third game with at least 100 yards this season. All three of those have come in the last five contests.
Nov 4 - 4:52 PM

Missouri junior QB Drew Lock completed 15-of-20 passes for 228 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 45-16 win over Florida.

Don't look now, but Lock has been blistering it as of late. With his three touchdown passes on Saturday, he has now thrown for at least a trio of scores in each of his last five games and has posted a 21/2 TD/INT ratio overall in that space. The junior gunslinger has 31 touchdown passes in nine games for the campaign as a whole.
Nov 4 - 4:48 PM

Missouri sophomore RB Damarea Crockett (shoulder) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Florida on Saturday.

Crockett (5'11/212) underwent should surgery in the middle of the month, so it was always a longshot that he would be able to play against the Gators. Missouri HC Barry Odom said that the sophomore running back will be reevaluated next week. Ish Witter and Larry Roundtree III will likely get the bulk of the carries on Friday against the Florida defense this week.
Oct 30 - 6:46 PM

SEC Country's Randy Capps assigned Missouri junior QB Drew Lock an "A-plus" for his performance against UConn on Saturday.

Lock did as he does against subpar competition -- that is to say, he shredded the Huskies. The gunslinger completed 31-of-37 passes for 377 yards and five touchdowns in the 52-12 win. He owns a 15/1 TD/INT ratio over his last three games. A crumbling Florida team shows next on Mizzou's schedule.

Oct 29 - 1:29 PM

Missouri redshirt senior WR J'Mon More caught eight passes for 98 yards and two scores in a 52-12 route of Uconn on Saturday.

It's the fourth time in five games that Moore has scored, and the two touchdowns give him seven on the season. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound wideout had no trouble getting open against the lethargic UConn secondary, and he scored from four and 13 yards out, respectively. This is one of the most talented pass-catchers in the SEC conference. He could have another big day against the banged up Florida secondary next week.
Oct 28 - 10:22 PM

Missouri junior QB Drew Lock completed 31-of-37 passes for 377 yards and five touchdowns in a 52-12 rout of UConn on Saturday.

Lock is as hot as any quarterback in the country right now. In his last three games, he's now thrown for 15 touchdowns with just one interception in that time. He spread the ball around to the Missouri receivers, but found J'Mon Moore for two of his scores, with three different Tigers catching the other touchdowns. Lock will look to continue this impressive streak next week against Florida.
Oct 28 - 10:17 PM

Missouri HC Barry Odom said that sophomore RB Damarea Crockett (shoulder) is week-to-week.

Crockett underwent shoulder surgery last Friday. There's no concrete timetable for the 5-foot-11, 212-pounder's return at this juncture, but Mizzou is holding out hope that he will be able to come back before the end of the campaign.
Oct 25 - 5:39 PM

Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Missouri sophomore RB Damarea Crockett underwent shoulder surgery on Friday.

That clears things up. Crockett was withheld from Saturday's game against Idaho, with rumors flying around that he was facing an extended absence. HC Barry Odom confirmed as much after the game. With only five games left in this lost season, it wouldn't be a surprise if the 2-5 Tigers simply shut Crockett down.
