The Tigers are looking to give themselves a chance to play in the SEC championship and they need a win tonight to help. Maty Mauk and Marcus Murphy hook up on an option pitch to give the Tigers a 17-3 halftime lead in Oxford.
Mauk is getting the job done in place of James Franklin and Mizzou looks to be more diverse with him as he gets more and more time in a football game. The Tigers have their work cut out to finish the game in the second half though.
