Sloppy play from the Arizona State Sun Devils continued in the third quarter, as the Missouri Tigers increased their lead to 24-7 at the end of the third quarter in Columbia, Mo.
Missouri took advantage of another short field created by more special teams woes. A mishandled snap at the ASU goal line forced punter Josh Hubner to kick while being dragged down by Missouri defenders. He managed to get his punt off, but Missouri needed just five plays to convert the 33-yard field into a touchdown.
After a first half of offensive struggles, Arizona State started the third quarter by moving to Missouri's 34-yard line, but a sack and a false-start forced the Devils to punt.
Late in the quarter, Missouri botched a punt of its own, giving Arizona State a short field. Taylor Kelly currently has the Sun Devils in business at Missouri's 10-yard line at the quarter's end.
