Challenges for Missouri

Tank Bigsby is a 6-foot 210-pound running back who is Auburn’s top player. Now in his third season, Bigby has run for 2,173 yards and 18 touchdowns in his career. Bigsby has the ability to both run over and around defenders. He’s a player that if not contained, can wear down an opposing defense and set his team up for the kill in the fourth quarter. Missouri can’t afford to allow Bigsby to run wild.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
