Live In-Game Updates: HALFTIME: Missouri Tigers 17, Abilene Christian 3 – Sports Illustrated

  • September 17, 2022

The Missouri Tigers headed into Week 3 of the season with mixed emotions.
A dominant 52-24 season-opening win over the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs put a huge spark of confidence in coach Eli Drinkwitz's team, but last week's 40-12 blowout loss to the Kansas State Wildcats immediately shot the Tigers back down to Earth. 
But now, the team is presented with a solid bounce-back opportunity against the Abilene Christian Wildcats, who come into Saturday's game at Faurot Field with a 2-0 record. 
The Wildcats picked up a 28-14 season-opening win over Lamar on Sept. 1 before squeaking out a close 21-13 victory over Prairie View last week. 
ACU is led by quarterback Maverick Mclvor, who has gone 42 of 72 passing for 483 yards, four touchdowns, and three picks this season. 
The Wildcats are also led by receiver Kendall Catalon, who has totaled 11 catches for 162 yards and a touchdown so far this season. 
ACU has failed to get the running game going through two games, as the team's leading rusher, running back Rovaughn Banks Jr., has posted just 25 carries for 85 yards this season.
The Tigers will be without offensive lineman Xavier Delgado – who was not seen wearing pads pregame – as well receiver Demariyon Houston, receiver Chance Super, defensive lineman Ky Montgomery, and offensive lineman Hyrin White.
