Tigers Produce Record-Breaking Numbers in Win
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Drew Lock threw a school record-tying five touchdown passes, and Missouri shattered its school scoring record Saturday, dismantling Delaware State 79-0.
The previous record of 69 points has occurred three times, most recently on Sept. 17, 2011, when the Tigers shut out Western Illinois.
Lock completed 26 of 36 pass attempts for 402 yards.
The Tigers (2-2, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) led 58-0 at halftime, resulting in a shortened second half. The third and fourth quarters were reduced from 15 minutes to 10.
Delaware State (0-3) managed just 140 yards of offense, 133 of which came in the first half. Mike Waters rushed seven times for 31 yards and Brycen Alleyne had nine carries for 21 yards.
Daniel Epperson started at quarterback for the Hornets, but completed only 3 of 9 passes and was replaced by Kobie Lain, who finished 7 of 15 for 82 yards.
J’Mon Moore had eight catches for 114 yards and four touchdowns, tying the school record for receiving touchdowns.
Damarea Crockett led the Tigers in rushing with 12 carries for 115 yards and two touchdowns. Ish Witter added 9 rushes for 40 yards and a touchdown.
Lock did not play in the second half and backup quarterback Marvin Zanders completed both of his pass attempts for 17 yards and a touchdown, while rushing seven times for 83 yards and two scores.
