Lock leads Mis­souri in Fri­day rout vs. Arkansas

The Sun Herald (Sunday) - - Sports -

In his fi­nal home game, Mis­souri quar­ter­back Drew Lock rushed for two touch­downs and threw for two more as the Tigers beat Arkansas 38-0 on a damp and dreary Fri­day.

Lock com­pleted 16 of 25 passes for 221 yards, sur­pass­ing the 3,000-yard mark for the third straight sea­son. Emanuel Hall caught both touch­down passes and fin­ished with six re­cep­tions for 153 yards.

Larry Roun­tree rushed 29 times for 119 yards to ex­ceed 1,000 yards for the sea­son.

The Tigers (8-4, 4-4 SEC) took ad­van­tage of two turnovers to take con­trol early in the sec­ond quar­ter.

Arkansas quar­ter­back Ty Storey threw a pass into the chest of line­backer Terez Hall, whose in­ter­cep­tion set up Lock for his sec­ond rush­ing touch­down of the game. On the next posses­sion, Mis­souri de­fen­sive tackle Jor­dan El­liott blind­sided Storey, and de­fen­sive end Akial By­ers — a na­tive of Fayet­teville, Arkansas — pounced on the fum­ble in the end zone as the Tigers took a 21-0 lead.

It was a for­get­table end to a dif­fi­cult de­but sea­son for Arkansas coach Chad Mor­ris. The Ra­zor­backs (2-10, 0-8) man­aged just 187 to­tal yards.

Fresh­man Con­nor Noland re­placed Storey in the sec­ond quar­ter and com­pleted 5 of 17 passes for 98 yards.

El­liott had three sacks for the Tigers af­ter en­ter­ing the game with no sacks in the first 11 games.
