There are 92 college football teams in the country that entered Week 8 not averaging 34 points per game. Missouri was one of them.

Well, the Tigers racked up 34 in the first quarter against a defenseless Idaho team, setting a new Mizzou record for points scored in a single quarter.

The onslaught began after Idaho capitalized on an early interception deep in Tigers territory by scoring a touchdown and taking a 7-0 lead about two minutes into the game.

From there, Missouri QB Drew Lock threw 4 TD passes and Richaud Floyd returned a punt 85 yards for a score. The newly minted all-time mark would have been 35 if not for a missed extra point after the team’s fourth trip to the end zone.
