For the fourth straight game, Missouri got off to a slow start. And for the fourth straight game, the Tigers managed to overcome it, beating Arkansas State 41-19 after two second-half touchdown drives.

Missouri quarterback James Franklin threw for over 200 yards and two touchdowns in the win, adding to his impressive early season totals. 

The defense also held on when it needed to. Michael Sam collected a pair of sacks, and Andrew Wilson set a new career high in tackles. 

Missouri improved to 4-0 and will travel to Nashville to take on Vanderbilt in Week 5, which marks the beginning of the Tigers' Southeastern Conference schedule.
