Ray was the SEC's leader in sacks (14) and tackles for loss (21) this season. The targeting penalty was Missouri's third of the game.
Alabama opened the game with a 10-play, 68-yard drive that culminated in a one-yard touchdown run by T.J. Yeldon. Following Ray's ejection and Alabama's second touchdown, Missouri got on the board with a 33-yard field goal after a nine-play, 58-yard drive.
