Comments

Give Missouri credit for scheduling this tough out-of-conference matchup. These two teams are pretty even. I give Missouri the edge though, I think BC’s schedule so far has been pretty weak. The three opponents they have faced have a combined 1 win. That said, BC handled those 3 teams pretty well. This one could probably go either way but I pick Mizzou for the reason stated above.
