Alabama and Missouri in Rain Delay; Tide Leads 27-0

John David Mercer-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The game is likely to resume at some point, but it's already over

It was already getting difficult to find a reason to keep watching Alabama's game at Missouri when the rain delay kicked in. T.J. Yeldon had just completed a 4.5-yard leap to score a touchdown and give the Tide a 27-0 lead. Whenever the game resumes, if it does, the game is essentially over.

With 8:40 left in the second quarter, Alabama has already generated 303 yards of total offense. Yeldon's 78 yards and two touchdowns on eight carries is actually second on the Tide to Eddie Lacy, who has 113 yards and two scores on seven rushes. AJ McCarron is 7-of-8 for 105 yards passing. Alabama has 11 first downs so far to Missouri's two.

Speaking of the Tigers offense, it has just 40 yards on the game so far. Corbin Berkstresser is 3-of-10 for 20 yards and an interception. Missouri has two plays longer than seven yards.

So the formality of a victory is all that's left for Alabama. For all intents and purposes, they're going to hit the halfway point of the season having given us no reason to doubt that they are who we thought they were.
