Comments

Missouri has a struggling defense that gives up boatloads of points but the Tigers should be able to outscore the Mean Green, which is more green than mean. The only worry here is that the Tigers might be downcast after their home butt whipping by Tennessee. However, Mizzou head coach Eliah Drinkwitz seems like a decent motivator. He’ll have them ready.
