COLUMBIA — The Missouri Tigers trail the No. 6 Oklahoma State Cowboys 24-17 at halftime.
After an impressive start to the game by Oklahoma State's offense, the Tigers scored two second-quarter touchdowns to make it a seven-point game at the half.
James Franklin's 34-yard touchdown pass to T.J. Moe — and Grant Ressel's ensuing extra-point conversion — brought the score to 24-17 with two minutes remaining in the second quarter. Kendial Lawrence contributed an 18-yard touchdown run earlier in the quarter.
Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden threw three touchdown passes in the first half, leading a Cowboy offense that looked as good as advertised early.
