Kentucky vs. Missouri 2014: Halftime Notes

New, 3 comments
Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

~ Maty Mauk appears to have found his groove. After a tumultuous month of October, Mauk has entered the month of November with a startling performance on Saturday afternoon, going 13-for-18 with 126 yards through the air. He's tossed a pair of touchdown passes to wide receiver Bud Sasser, who has four catches for 44 yards.

~ The Tiger ground game has not been as spectacular as it usually proves to be. While they have 92 yards on the run, it's been on a combined 25 carries. Marcus Murphy leads the way with 35 rushing yards, but has a yards per carry of 4.4.

~ The Missouri defense has been stifling a Kentucky Wildcats offense that has proven itself to be able to get a big play every now and then. Going into the half, quarterback Patrick Towles has just 14 yards on six pass attempts, with an interception to boot. As our friends at Rock M Nation tell us, the defensive line has been getting after it.

~ Conversely, the Wildcat run game has a combined 97 yards on 16 carries, with Mikel Horton leading the way with 60 yards on six carries.

Enjoy the second half!
