Mizzou starts off the spring beating in-state rival SLU
The Tigers offense started hot as the opening kickoff got swung to the backline where center Adam Cooley took it the distance for the opening try. James Glavin followed suit with a try of his own breaking a tackle and scoring from 25 meters out. SLU scored two of their own as the Tigers defense failed to defend against the offload and the score was tied 12-12. Cooley and Glavin each scored one more before the end of the half giving the Tigers a 26-12 lead. After halftime, the Tigers defense stiffened and the offense was able to get the ball to wing Nick Romano for a score. The game ended in a 40-17 win for Mizzou and a solid start to the season.
