Missouri had Kentucky’s number when they first joined the SEC in 2012, but after winning the first three matchups, the Tigers have dropped the last two games to Kentucky. Here’s how Kentucky took down the Tigers in 2015 and 2016.
2015: Kentucky 21, No. 25 Missouri 13
Kentucky handed the two-time defending Eastern Division champs their first loss of the 2015 season. Patrick Towles completed 81 percent of his passes for 249 yards and 2 touchdowns; 6 of those receptions went to Juice Johnson for 119 yards. Towles also had an impressive 14-yard touchdown.
In the highlights you’ll see C.J. Conrad’s first touchdown as a Wildcat and a HUGE third down reception.
2016: Kentucky 35, Missouri 21
Kentucky sprinted out to an early lead thanks to Benny Snell and Boom Williams. Snell carried the ball a career-high 38 times for 192 yards and 2 touchdowns, and Williams added 19 carries for 182 yards and a receiving touchdown on an impressive screen pass.
Kentucky piled up 582 total yards and cruised to victory (a late Mizzou score on a missed assignment made the game look closer than it actually was). It’s one of the best total games Kentucky has played under Mark Stoops.
