Challenges for Missouri
Missouri has a decent offense with quarterback Connor Bazelak running things. Enjoy the offensive show Missouri fans but put on blindfolds when the Tiger defense hits the field. Mizzou’s defense is horrendous. The Tigers are dead last in the SEC in total defense giving up almost 500 yards a game. They also allow over 38 points per game, again, worst in the SEC. The Tiger staff’s challenge for the North Texas game is to show some improvement in that defense. It can be done. Look at your personnel and game strategy and implement adjustments that make sense.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 3:00 PM CT (4:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
