In the final game of the first season under head coach Chad Morris, the Arkansas Razorbacks (2-10, 0-8) were shutout by the Missouri Tigers (8-4, 4-4) 38-0 in Columbia on Saturday.
After four completions in seven attempts and an interception from the hands of junior quarterback Ty Storey, true freshman Connor Noland took over the Razorback offense. Noland finished 5-17 for 89 yards.
Sophomore Rakeem Boyd had five carries for five yards during the game before getting hurt in the second quarter. Junior Devwah Whaley finished with 54 yards.
Arkansas had two turnovers, both of which involved Storey. Besides the interception, Storey fumbled the ball on Arkansas’ 14-yard line after a sack in the second quarter and it was recovered by Missouri sophomore defensive end Akial Byers.
Tiger senior quarterback Drew Lock had an explosive last game at Faurot Field. He went 16-25 for 221 yards and threw two touchdown passes, both of which were caught by redshirt senior receiver Emanuel Hall, who finished with 153 yards. Lock also scored two rushing touchdowns for the first time in his college career.
Although he did not score any touchdowns, sophomore running back Larry Rountree had little to no problems with the Razorback defense, putting up 119 rushing yards.
The Tiger defense held the Razorbacks to only 187 yards of total offense, including 135 passing yards and 52 rushing yards. Junior linebacker Cale Garrett led the Tigers with six tackles and the defense forced eight tackles for loss, five sacks and two quarterback hits.
