With the loss, Mizzou falls to 3-3 overall and 0-3 in the SEC.

One of the lone bright spots for the Tigers was Jalen Knox who had three catches for 61 yards and one touchdown.

The Tide out-gained Mizzou 564 yards to 212 on offense.

Mizzou forced Alabama to punt for the first time since Sep. 22.

Wide receivers Emanuel Hall and Nate Brown did not travel with the team. Both missed their second straight games due to injury.

The game started, and two plays later Alabama was in the end zone off an 81-yard strike by Tua Tagovailoa for the touchdown.

Two plays later, Alabama picked off Drew Lock and returned the interception deep into Mizzou territory, and the Tide turned it into points. Less than two minutes into the game, Alabama led 10-0.

Just five minutes later, Alabama opened the flood gates with two touchdowns after Lock fumbled deep in Mizzou territory. Alabama never looked back.
