In the 500th Missouri football game played in Memorial Stadium, the Tigers triumphed over the Southeast Missouri State University Redhawks 50-0. The Tigers shutout the Redhawks in the first half while scoring 37 points themselves. Kelly Bryant, who threw for 225 yards and a touchdown, was pulled in the third quarter . However,  most eyes were on Missouri running back Larry Rountree III, who had 18 carries for 142 yards and two touchdowns.
