The defense however, gave up scoring drives of 75 and 84 yards in the first half and only led 24-16 at the half.

The Missouri Tigers won their first game against the Southeast Louisiana Lions, 62-10.

Zaviar Gooden returned an interception for a touchdown and Michael Sam returned a fumble for a touchdown. Running back Kendial Lawrence also ran for 121 yards and two touchdowns, one of them from 76 yards out.
