2014 Missouri vs Florida

Coming into the game, Florida and Missouri desperately needed wins after both teams suffered crushing losses in the week prior.

Missouri got things started quickly thanks to Marcus Murphy returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown. The Tigers were up 7-0 before Florida fans could even find their seats and Gary Pinkel’s squad never looked back.

Although Missouri was dominated in nearly every statistical category, the Tigers took advantage of several Florida miscues on offense and special teams, recording a punt return for a touchdown, a fumble return for a touchdown and a pick-six.

On the other sideline, Florida looked miserable. Offensively, the Gators were lifeless and the 2 QB system of Jeff Driskel and Treon Harris imploded. Driskel was given the majority of playing time, but only because the game was so lopsided, the coaching staff didn’t want to ruin the confidence of Harris.

Eventually, Driskel played bad enough throwing some ghastly interceptions, which forced the coaching staff to put Harris in the game. The true freshman was able to pick up two touchdowns in garbage time and bring the game to a 42-13 close.

Florida is now 3-3 on the season while Missouri is 5-2
